6:59 pm on 18 February 2010

The Manly Sea Eagles coach Des Hasler has appointed Jamie Lyon and Jason King as co-captains for the 2010 National Rugby League season.

Lyon will be the on-field captain while King will handle the off-field leadership duties, including being the team spokesman official events.

Hasler says the role of captain is a big commitment and he is simply spreading the workload by making it a two-man job.

Lyon says to be given the duty of on-field captain after just three years at the club is a big honour and is excited about the upcoming season.
