Adelaide Crows skipper Taylor Walker has welcomed the addition of superstar small forward Eddie Betts and Tom Lynch to the clubs leadership group.

Since coming to the Crows for the 2014 season, Betts has electrified the club both on and off the field, leading the teams goalkicking every year and proving an exceptional role model to the clubs younger players.

Walker (pictured) says adding the pair to the leadership group can only make the club grow stronger over the course of the 2017 season.
