Joel Selwood to lead Geelong as two vice-captains appointed

Geelong champion Joel Selwood will lead the club into battle for the eighth successive season after being officially named captain at the Cats’ season launch.

The Cats’ triple premiership midfielder has already served the club as skipper in a record 162 games, having taken on the position in 2012, the year after the Cats won their most recent premiership.

Patrick Dangerfield will again be the 30-year-old’s deputy, having been appointed vice-captain for 2019 alongside club best-and-fairest Mark Blicavs, who has been named co-vice-captain for the first time.

Dangerfield, 28, remains one of the game’s best players, having won the 2016 Brownlow Medal and being runner-up (although ineligible) in 2017. He has been All-Australian six times and was vice-captain of that team in 2018.
