The All-Australian captain is conspicuously absent from Sydney’s leadership group

Lance Franklin was not named in the Swans’ eight-man official leadership group.
Sportsday host Dwayne Russell said it makes Franklin’s appointment as the All-Australian captain all the more mystifying.
“It’s an elephant in the room,” Dwayne said on Friday.
“The Swans cannot ever find a spot for him in the leadership group.”
