12.50PM: The Daily Advertiser caught up with the captains before today’s big game.
City has a young team – in fact, at 24, captain Wade Graham is older than the average player in his side.
“It was a great honour when Freddie told me and we’ve got a fairly young squad,” Graham said.
“I’ve been lucky to be in the team previously with good leaders so I’m just trying to do what they taught me.”
City only have four players older than 24, with Joseph Paulo the oldest at 27, but Graham believes his experience with Cronulla will help him lead around the team.
