Ziebell takes over the reins at Arden St from Andrew Swallow while Kennedy will be following in the path of his Swans teammates Kieren Jack and Jarrad McVeigh.

Both leaders will be keen to start their respective reigns as captain with a win meaning there'll be plenty of hard nosed action at the C.ex Coffs International Stadium.
