Captaincy won't burden

New Parramatta skipper Nathan Hindmarsh says the extra burden of captaincy won't cause him to alter his game against North Queensland on Friday night.

Hindmarsh will lead the side at Parramatta Stadium against the Cowboys, with regular skipper Nathan Cayless starting the game from the bench. The workaholic backrower has described the captaincy as more of an honorary role than anything else and says he won't lift his vocal or physical output on the field as a result of the appointment.

Hindmarsh says the only difference will be that he will have a little `c' beside his name on the team sheet.
