TURNER: Bennett’s Broncos homecoming is a play for power

TURNER: Bennett’s Broncos homecoming is a play for power

22 Jul 2014

The Broncos have made a sizeable gamble by re-hiring Wayne Bennett as their main man, but it had to happen for the club to reposition itself as one of the NRL superpowers. Despite moderate success in his three seasons at Newcastle, Bennett was clearly the best coach on the market and the Broncos would have […]

STEVE TURNER: New refereeing system is a miserable failure

STEVE TURNER: New refereeing system is a miserable failure

15 Jul 2014

The referees’ new decision-making process has failed miserably, and I’d like to see a major overhaul for the 2015 season. League’s current ref system is just not working – the fans, players and even the officials themselves are not happy with it, and referees boss Tony Archer has some decisions to make in the off-season.

TURNER: League’s match scheduling an on-going shocker

24 Jun 2014

I can’t get over the number of free kicks rugby league gives to the other football codes in Sydney. The past weekend was a shocker, with just one of the five NRL games played in the metropolitan area – the Sharks versus the Sea Eagles at Cronulla. It must have had the administrators from rugby […]

TURNER: Blues skipper Gallen poised for the game of his life

TURNER: Blues skipper Gallen poised for the game of his life

17 Jun 2014

Watch for a really special performance from Paul Gallen in tomorrow night’s Origin game at ANZ Stadium. The Blues’ skipper has produced many inspirational efforts for NSW over the years, but I’ve got a feeling this one could top them all. Played at the Blues’ home in front of 70,000-plus fans, this game could be […]
