“Hugh for me is the one who probably has what it takes, whether he’s a bit too raw now or maybe he wants to settle down a bit more – that’s a decision that the club has to make,” said Zorko.

“It would be a perfect fit for me.

“It’s a big process and I’m sure the club will make the best decision possible.”

Zorko was urged to give up the role of captain last year after his on-field sled brought Melbourne defender Harrison Petty to tears.

The 34-year-old weathered that storm to lead the Lions to an interim final, with their flag hopes ended by eventual Premier Geelong.


Zorko said he made his decision with Brisbane manager Chris Fagan on Monday, opting to make the call himself before being patted on the back.

He said some of his team-mates were surprised when he told the group but he firmly believes it is the best move for the club, for him and his family.

“I think it’s the right decision. I think the timing is really good,” Zorko said.

“Obviously I will still be there to support anyone who takes on the captaincy and guide them in any way I can, but hopefully stepping away from these formal roles will give me time to spend with my family and of course.” my body right to have the best possible year that I can.”
