What you need to know about royal family feuds
NEWCASTLE’S JAMES McCLEARY’S family feud with his cousin has been a source of drama in the NRL.
James McCleary and his cousin have been in a bitter dispute for the past four years, culminating in the New Zealand-born NRL star’s sacking as coach of Canterbury.
McCleary had been appointed the club’s head coach after the 2016 season.
The feud started in the summer of 2016, when James had a brief altercation with the McClearies’ cousin who had a history of domestic violence.
After the incident, the McClemings claimed James had made a mistake and the NRL would be better off without him.
In January 2017, the NRL issued a statement saying James had “made a mistake” in the incident but denied the incident was motivated by domestic violence or any “egregious” behaviour.
That statement came after James was fired by Canterbury in May 2017, and the New York Times reported that the NRL was considering removing McClears family name from the team.
But in a new report, the Sunday Times has claimed James is unhappy with the team’s management.
It claims the NRL is not “taking responsibility for the conduct of its coaches and players” and has been “silently supportive of James” in recent years.
“James is unhappy that he has to live in New Zealand to continue to live as a player,” the newspaper quoted James as saying.
‘James has a problem’ The report also says James is angry that he is not getting enough credit for the success he has had as a professional footballer.

He has a lot of issues with his manager.
He wants to know how they are going to get things sorted out, he wants to see how they can make things better.
He is frustrated that he doesn’t get any recognition for what he has done.”
James is a former Canterbury captain who was the Bulldogs’ best player in the 2017 season and has a long-standing feud with the Bulldogs management.
James was also sacked as head coach of New Zealand’s Canterbury Warriors in 2018.
According to the New England Journal of Medicine and Science, a report from the University of New England, James’ symptoms include fatigue, fatigue headaches, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder.
On Sunday, McCleARY released a statement on Twitter saying: “This is the story of how a great person was forced out of his job at a New Zealand club due to a family feud.”
McClaries mother and father were also at loggerhead.
McCLARY: “My parents have had a very bitter and emotional relationship for years.
They have been on different sides of the argument for years and I understand why.
This is not a personal issue.
This is a business issue.”
The Bulldogs had announced on Thursday that McClearie would not be returning to New Zealand next season.
The club said it had been in talks with McClearing family for months about the future of James.
While James was not at the NRL club in 2017, his father, Chris McCleare, is currently the club coach.
A number of people connected to James McClesary have been involved in the family feud and have been vocal about their views.

Chris McClearer told the New South Wales Courier Mail last year that James and his wife were a “giant family”.
“The family is an absolute mess,” he said.

McCLEARERS son says his father has a “mishap” over James’ dismissal from Canterbury.
