Warriors fullback Roger Tuivasa-Sheck has replaced second rower Ryan Hoffman as captain for the upcoming National Rugby League season.
Tuivasa-Sheck is the club's 11th captain.
Coach Stephen Kearney said the appointement was with an eye to the future, and not just about the current season.
"We've given the captaincy a lot of thought throughout the offseason before reaching this point....what we've done is to look further ahead with not just the captaincy but also the make-up of our squad," he said.
Tuivasa Sheck said it was a "huge privilege to be captain of my club and I'm excited about taking on the added responsibility".
Former captain Simon Mannering will be vice captain.
Kearney said Hoffman will still have a part to play in the leadership group.
The club has also announced it had signed Kiwis forward Tohu Harris on an extended four-year deal, starting from 2018.
