Bit of an interesting thought here…
Back in 2010-2012 a lot of people seemed to believe that the closeness between the players (Ryan/Heighington/Gibbs/Marshall/Farah/Moltzen etc) was bad for team culture and believed it to be one of the reasons that that premiership window effectively closed with little-to-no success.
It seems as if bonding and coming together as a group seems to be one of Cleary’s major philosophies, and Benji actually touched on it while talking to MMM that he believed that it’s only a good thing for the squad as a whole.
What’s everybody’s overall thoughts?? Can teammates get too close to one another or is it that the tighter that the squad is on a personal sense the better it is for a team and ultimately that team’s success??
