DARYN Smit has been appointed Dolphins captain for the coming season, a move that has generated an atmosphere of confidence among players, management and officials at Kingsmead. His appointment was one of coach Klusener’s first tasks and a step in the right direction at identifying leadership within the team. “He’s a senior player and leads from the front. He’s equipped to handle pressure and his record shows he performs his best when the chips are down. His pride and passion are an example to all around him and he is the ideal man to be at the helm this season, although it won’t be an easy task,” he said.
