"It's important to have all different types of leaders in there, it creates a lot more discussion when you've got guys with different opinions" McCluggae said.

"I think having a range of ages as well really helps, you've got a few younger boys now in Bez (Jarrod Berry) and myself and even Harris (Harris Andrews)"

"if guys coming in the younger draftees don't feel as comfortable going up to the older blokes and saying something, they can come to us".
