Bob Beswick will retain the Newcastle Thunder captaincy for 2021, after becoming captain during his first season last year.
The Ireland international comes into the role with plenty of experience, having played in over 400 games as a professional player.
Reacting to the news, Beswick said: “I’m very honoured to get the chance to captain Newcastle again this year. I’m excited to work alongside Eamon and Dennis again as we step up to the Championship.
“We’ve brought some quality players in with super league and NRL experience and if we continue to work hard I’m confident we can compete against some very tough opposition this year.
“To walk out in front of the fans again at Kingston Park is something I’m sure everyone is looking forward to doing.”
