Van Berlo reappointed as Crows captain

Described by his coach as the complete leadership package, Adelaide onballer Nathan van Berlo has been reappointed as Crows captain.

Van Berlo will lead the Crows for a third consecutive AFL season, with Scott Thompson his vice-captain and Patrick Dangerfield named deputy vice-captain.

Crows coach Brenton Sanderson says reappointing van Berlo is a no-brainer.

"He's the ultimate role model for our young players and the entire squad," Sanderson said in a statement on Thursday.

Ruckman Sam Jacobs and forward Jason Porplyzia have been included in the Crows' leadership group, with Ben Rutten standing down from the group.
