Former Sydney captain Kieren Jack says he is prepared to spend more time in the forward line this season as he helps the younger midfielders transition into the Swans’ engine room.

“With the young players that we have coming through I look forward to being able to help them transition,” Jack said.

“I look at Isaac Heeney, Zak Jones and Callum Mills who I really want to be a part of the midfield in the future.

“Maybe that means at times I am going to have to spend some time forward.

“You look at some of the players that we have got down there in Kurt Tippett and Bud then if I am the small down there getting to their feet I should get a few opportunities.”

Jack, 29, stepped down as co-captain of the club, along with Jarrad McVeigh, after four years in the role, handing the captaincy duties over to Josh Kennedy.

“Josh is absolutely deserving of it because he deserves a chance to sit in the chair and realise what that is like to be a captain,” Jack added.

“To be there for four years was a real privilege and something I will definitely look back on with memories.”
