He is 25 years old.Having an AA half-back flanker in a bottom 4 team is pointless. We need to look at what our team will be like in 3-4 years. A 30 year old AA half back flanker isn't going to do much for us then either. I am not saying we should trade Laird specifically, but there is no reason we shouldn't be looking to trade him or Smith or either Crouch. We should have made the big calls last year with Sloane and Lynch. Now we have to fix up past mistakes, including trading two firsts for Gibbs.
But if that's your thought pattern we need to trade out Smith, Brad Crouch, Sloane, Talia, Brown amongst others.
Who do you think is going to mentor the young kids we get in? Campo?
