With Tom Rockliff having joined Port Adelaide as a free agent this week, he joins an illustrious group of players who have gone to a new club after captaining their previous club.

Incredibly, he might not be on his own this post-season with Luke Hodge (Hawthorn) set to join the Brisbane Lions and Gary Ablett (Gold Coast) expected to join Geelong.

And if Jack Trengove (Melbourne) is thrown a lifeline, that would take the tally to four!
