Sydney has announced triple-captains for the 2019 season, with three players set to take the role.
Josh Kennedy will remain skipper, while Luke Parker and Dane Rampe will join him as co-captains.
Swans coach John Longmire explained the decision.
“Josh has clearly been one of our most consistent and important performers for a long time now, but what has been particularly impressive in his last two seasons as captain is his ability to develop our next generation of leaders,” Longmire told the Swans’ website.
“To be able to add two more players with captaincy experience to our playing group alongside Josh, Jarrad McVeigh and Kieren Jack, really broadens the leadership capabilities within the team.
“I’ve long said that leadership isn’t about set numbers – it’s about the right people for the job.
“So it’s a fantastic outcome to be in the position where we have three outstanding and deserved co-captains in Josh, Luke and Dane, who will help lead and drive the group.
“We’ve seen what a competitor Josh has been over the journey, but to now have two just as driven, hard-working and all-round good people in Luke and Dane join him as co-captains is a great result. As co-captains, they’ll each bring their own strengths to the role.”
