That's what a lot of us said about Ash Taylor, me included.I sort of get the feeling we need to keep this kid. Not sure how, but we need to make it happen. I hate the thought of him carving up for someone else.
I don't think we need to look for a halfback either, but for a different reason - because Dearden is going to need a few years to show us if he's the right one or not. A lot of halves come in full of promise, but never seem to develop enough. Cleary is the perfect example right now. I hope he succeeds, but we still need to be cautiously optimistic.That's what a lot of us said about Ash Taylor, me included.
As I see it, we have gone with Dearden who is looking exactly what we need at half back. For mine Dearden is class and it is starting to show.
