St Kilda has finalised its new look leadership group for 2017.

While the club is yet to make the announcement, Foxfooty reports that, as expected, Jarryn Geary has been unveiled to the team as the new captain of the side, replacing Nick Riewoldt, who captained the club for 11 seasons.

Jack Newnes, Jack Steven, David Armitage and Maverick Weller make up the remainder of the new, young leadership group, along with 23-year-old, Seb Ross, who has played just 59 games.

Veteran trio Riewoldt, Leigh Montagna and Sean Dempster opted to step aside from their leadership roles.
