The second mistake you're making is thinking (or so it seems) that we're in a rebuilding mode. If we want to win now, O'Byrne, as good (or not) as he may be in the future, can not play on the top two pairings.
First, OByrne is ready, he just needs experience and make better decisions and that comes with playing time. Like i said, his size, reach, mobility and physicality is just enough right now to help us and it can only get better from now. For now, theres no point of trading for a D and lose our young players, we have to give him a chance to be a player for us because of what he can bring. The pay off could be huge at the end of the year if it works out.
