Lycett wishes he had the tools Ladhams has.Rookies have to nominate for the national draft first, and he’s no Luke Ball. He could end up anywhere. That’s why a club would trade.
Anyway it doesn’t matter. We’ve probably offered him a one year deal because it’s tied to what we’ve offered Ryder - sort of a “This is the pie, you get this slice, you get this slice” kind of situation. Ladhams isn’t Hayes, who will be a superstar ruck - he’s another Lycett.
I’m all for retaining him, but it has to be realistic. He needs to realise that the money will be there once Ryder is gone...which is probably why he’ll wait until we see what Paddy is doing.
