Wests Tigers head coach Ivan Cleary has named five players to share captaincy role ahead of the 2018 season.

The players to lead the club this season include 2017 Wests Tigers vice-captain Chris Lawrence and fellow leadership group member Elijah Taylor, club Life Member Benji Marshall and new recruits Russell Packer and Josh Reynolds.

"When we started this preseason it was pretty obvious straight away that there was no real pecking order," said Cleary.

"There was no set culture to adhere to. It was all new. That was what I wanted it to be like and that’s just how it panned out.

"With this particular team at this time, I think it’s going to work best to spread that role and allow those blokes to develop in their own way."
