TOM JONAS will captain Port Adelaide for a fifth season as part of an unchanged leadership group.

Jonas has worn the iconic number one guernsey as club captain in 64 games so far.

The reliable defender has a 66% winning rate with 42 wins.

The 203-gamer will again be supported by vice-captain Ollie Wines and fellow defender Darcy Byrne-Jones as part of the three-man leadership group.

“It has been an absolute honour to captain this amazing club over the past four seasons, especially with two guys by my side who are great mates and great teammates,” Jonas said.

“It is something I have never taken for granted, particularly because of the incredible people that have come before me and the strong group of leaders we currently have at the club.

“It means a lot to again be trusted to lead this group.”

Port Adelaide senior coach Ken Hinkley was full of praise for the leadership group and its work in fostering the club’s next generation of leaders.

“In Tom, Ollie and Darcy, we have strong, well-respected leaders and we didn’t see any reason to make a change given their quality as individuals and as a collective,” Hinkley said.

“They are fantastic role models on and off the field and continue to set the standard for the great group of emerging leaders we have at our club.”

2021 Brownlow Medallist Wines was first included in the leadership group as a 20-year-old in 2015.

Byrne-Jones was elevated into the leadership group in 2020, the same year he won the John Cahill Medal as club best and fairest.
