    I’m rapped about this Bri is an absolute gun and leads by example, nothing wrong with Loz but I reckon Bri is a super choice

    It makes sense. Arnell will turn 32 at the end of this upcoming season, she obviously has plans for retirement but hopefully we see her out on the field for 2019 as well (or at least in the VFLW) and she's been doing coaching courses and has level 1 accreditation so Lauren could be up in the coaches box pretty soon when she does retire, in addition to her ABC commentary work.

    Great choice.

    Well done Bri - very well deserved.

    She's a superstar and we're very lucky to have her wearing navy blue. Can't wait to see her out there over the next couple of months.

    Spot on.

    Nothing wrong with Lauren or her leadership, she'll hold a very special place in the history of our club as our first ever AFLW captain, but the move to a younger captain makes sense. She's not getting any younger and you'd have to think retirement is on the cards sooner rather than later.

    Bri at 22 could legitimately captain this club for the next 10 years.

    Feels a bit strange to have the captaincy change after the first season, but I guess it's unique circumstances. Couldn't be happier for Bri Davey though! Can't wait for this season.

    Brilliant choice. Natural leader. She will lead by example and others will follow. Love her uncompromising style and attack on the footy. Will be a big year for the women’s team

    So the membership card is out of date before the season has even started.

    I suspect the men's team would have done similar had it not been for Doc's injury. It makes sense to bring in impressive young leadership and have former leaders back them up.

    I reckon you are spot on here ODN and Doc's injury has thrown a spanner in the works for Bolts and his boys.

    Its obviously a ploy to hang onto Davey or she would definitely have been a target of the expansion teams next year. Offering the Captaincy pretty much ensures she stays.

    Its interesting that Carltons Leadership group is chosen by the coaches instead of the playing group. A bit harsh on Arnell I would have thought..

    Not sure I could handle seeing Bri in anything other than navy blue.
