Injured Port Adelaide star Ollie Wines believes he is ready to lead the club this season.

It comes after it was revealed that Wines would miss the first month of the 2019 season following a water-skiing accident.

Despite Wines’ blunder, the gun midfielder believes that his experience as part of Port’s leadership group has him in a good position to assume the captaincy.

“It’d be a great honour to captain this club and I’d love to do it, but at this stage, I’m one of many candidates who could fill that,” Wines said to SEN SA.

“I do think I’m ready to captain this club, but I’m not the one who has that say.”

“As a playing group, as a coaching group, as a club, we get to decide that and that will take its place in due course.”
