TURNER: Roosters and Doggies to pair off in NRL’s big dance

TURNER: Roosters and Doggies to pair off in NRL’s big dance

3 hours ago

At the top of today’s column, I will stick my neck out and predict we are heading for a Roosters-Bulldogs grand final. Both teams squeezed home by a solitary point last weekend and in doing so convinced me they have the structures in place and the mental toughness to claim their respective grand final qualifiers.

TURNER: Roosters stumble but still on track for back-to-back titles

16 Sep 2014

Losing to a late Penrith field goal was a setback, but in my mind the Sydney Roosters are still the team to beat for the 2014 NRL title. That unexpected loss to an incredibly resilient Panthers outfit will serve as the perfect wakeup call for the Roosters, who probably didn’t pay the opposition the respect […]

The Roosters’ famed defence of 2013 turned up […]

TURNER: Titans’ future on the coast is anything but golden

26 Aug 2014

I hold major fears for the immediate future of the Gold Coast Titans. Season 2014 is almost over and despite some early promise – the Titans led after the first month – a bottom quarter finish is unavoidable. The club has been hit with a number of injuries to key personnel but when you look […]

TURNER: In a comp full of freak fullbacks Slater still reigns

TURNER: In a comp full of freak fullbacks Slater still reigns

19 Aug 2014

Debate rages wherever rugby league is played – just who is the number one No. 1 in our game? There are so many fantastic fullbacks playing at the moment that I’ve penned today’s column as a salute to all of them. Fullback has become the most important position on the field in the modern game. […]
