Triple AFLW premiership player Justine Mules has become the third high-profile Crow to defect to rivals Port Adelaide.

Mules has joined her flag-winning teammates Erin Phillips and Ange Foley in leaving Adelaide for Port, who enter the AFLW next season.

"I've looked up to Erin and Ange while they were in the leadership group at the Crows," Mules said in a statement on Thursday.

"It's just an absolute honour to be able continue playing with Erin and Ange Foley is an absolute weapon and I love her leadership style."

The Crows last month claimed their third premiership in six years but Phillips, the competition's most decorated player, was soon Port's first signing.

A dual league best and fairest medallist, Phillips played alongside Mules in all three Adelaide flags and was best-afield in two of them.

Phillips, whose father Greg is an eight-time SANFL premiership player at Port, had long pledged to play for the Power in their inaugural season.

But the signings of dual premiership utility Foley and fleet-footed winger Mules add instant firepower for coach Lauren Arnell.

"What we are most excited about, outside of her on-field talent, is her leadership ability which is becoming a theme for us in the players that have committed to us so far," Arnell said of Mules.

Delisted Port AFL stalwart Hamish Hartlett will be among Arnell's assistant coaches next season.
