The nib Newcastle Knights are pleased to confirm the naming of a five man senior leadership group heading into the 2021 season.
This group will include hard-hitting forward Mitch Barnett, live-wire fullback Kalyn Ponga, Origin front rower Daniel Saifiti, five-eighth Blake Green and hooker Jayden Brailey.
These players have been chosen from the NRL squad following an extensive selection process, and will be tasked with leading the club both on and off the field throughout 2021.
More details on the leadership group will be made available via newcastleknights.com.au throughout next week.
The club is yet to make a decision on who will take the mantle of Club Captain, with that announcement to be made at the Season Launch in March.
