Carlton name 2013 AFL leadership group
09:06 AEST Tue Dec 11 2012

Carlton on Tuesday named a new five-man leadership group for the 2013 AFL season following Chris Judd's decision to step aside after five years as captain.

Led by veterans Andrew Carrazzo, Kade Simpson and Jarrad Waite, the group also features 2011 John Nicholls Medal winner, Marc Murphy.

After two seasons at the Blues, defender Nick Duigan has been voted in for the first time.

Carlton's general manager of football Andrew McKay said the entire playing list was given the opportunity to nominate for a leadership role. The playing group then voted on the nominees.

"We are really pleased with the group chosen, we've got a balanced spread of experience and each line group is represented," he said.

The leadership group has also been trimmed from nine players in 2012.

"It is not about numbers, but instead a mix of respected players that will drive Carlton's expectations on and off the field in 2013," McKay said.
