Ryan Hinchcliffe will captain Storm on Monday night on the Gold Coast. He spoke to Storm TV about the honour on Wednesday.
"I'm very happy and proud that I will be able to lead the boys out this weekend," Hinchcliffe said.
"We are going through a little bit of a tough period but there is one way out of it and that is to work our way out of it.
"It's a huge honour, it's a very proud club."
A member of Craig Bellamy's leadership group over the last few seasons, Hinchcliffe is confident the club's young brigade will take their chance.
"It's exciting for those younger guys, it's exciting for our club to see the young talent that we have coming through," Hinchcliffe said.
"I think the young guys that we have had in there have been doing a good job.
"There is some real youth coming through our system at the moment and hopefully all the Storm fans get to see a few more."
