Newcastle coach Brian Smith has unveiled a five-man leadership group for the Knights 20th season in the NRL.

Prime Ministers XIII representatives, Adam Woolnough and Jarrod Mullen will join senior players, Danny Buderus, Steve Simpson and Andrew Johns to form the five-person group.

"They'll be responsible for a range of leadership issues, including liaising withreferees and management and communicating regularly with their team mates," said Brian Smith.

Former International, Andrew Johns will be team captain.

"The team captaincy issue was resolved after talking to Andrew about what he hopes to achieve out of the season," Smith said.

Johns said: "The way the captaincy has been structured will take a lot of the pressure off me.

"Steve and Danny in particular will share a lot of the leadership responsibilities allowing me to concentrate on leading the team on the field.
