New Huddersfield coach Paul Anderson has asked the club's senior players to choose a new captain for his first game in charge.
Anderson, who has stepped up from his role of assistant following Nathan Brown's departure, confirmed that one of his first acts was to take the captain's armband from Kevin Brown, who is joining Widnes next season. The 27-year-old Brown has been ruled out of the home game against Wakefield with an ankle injury and could have played his last game for the club.
Anderson is expected to make a number of changes to the side beaten 33-6 by Warrington in last Sunday's Challenge Cup semi-final but is relaxed about the choice of a new skipper who will come from his newly-elected leadership group of Danny Brough, Eorl Crabtree, David Faiumu, Scott Grix, Luke O'Donnell and Luke Robinson.
"The leadership group is my choice but I've left it to them to decide who'll lead out the side this weekend," Anderson told the Huddersfield Examiner.
"I've told them to go away, think about it and then let me know at training on Saturday. If they can't decide, then I'll decide it for them.
"But whatever happens, it won't be Kev any more. Although there's still a lot to play for this season, I'm also looking at things for next year and those plans obviously don't involve him."
