Use Variables

eqns = {x[1] + y[1] + z[1], x[1] + 3 z[1] + u[1]^2, z[1] - u[1] - 16, 
   u[1] - 5};

Variables /@ eqns

I am a bit stuck on how to convert the following set of equations to a  
list of variables:
eqns = {
    x[1] + y[1] + z[1],
    x[1] + 3 z[1] + u[1]^2,
    z[1] - u[1] - 16,
    u[1] - 5};
to give..
{{ x[1], y[1], z[1]},{x[1], z[1], u[1]},{z[1], u[1],}, {u[1]}}
Any thoughts would be appreciated!
