The Gold Coast Titans have named dual captains with First Nations forward Ryan James to lead the club alongside Kiwi international Kevin Proctor.

The two players have been friends for many years after first playing together at high school before being reunited at the Titans this year.

James (pictured) was widely tipped to be named as Titans skipper after his outstanding 2016 season and he says its not an honour that he will take likely on or off the field.
