TURNER: Maguire the key figure in Souths’ return to days of glory

TURNER: Maguire the key figure in Souths’ return to days of glory

7 Oct 2014

Michael Maguire’s efforts to turn Souths into a premiership-winning club deserve the highest praise. What he has done with the Rabbitohs in three years is phenomenal, and there’s every chance they can improve on Sunday’s stirring grand final win over Canterbury. ‘Madge’ has shown all the hallmarks of a great rugby league coach. He is […]

TURNER: Grand final dogfight will extend the South Sydney drought

TURNER: Grand final dogfight will extend the South Sydney drought

30 Sep 2014

I am confident Canterbury will claim their ninth premiership on Sunday, but it is going to take one heck of a performance from Des Hasler’s born-again Bulldogs. They will have to meet and beat Souths’ big and hungry pack in a clash many thought an impossibility just a few weeks ago. The Dogs have the […]

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

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 […]

TURNER: I'm picking just one upset in the NRL finals this weekend

9 Sep 2014

We’ve reached finals time at last and now that they are here, I have got to say I am really pumped. Every one of the eight teams would have a terrific story to tell if it went all the way and won the title but I’m not deviating from what I wrote here on The […]

STEVE TURNER: Brickwall Roosters will go back-to-back

STEVE TURNER: Brickwall Roosters will go back-to-back

2 Sep 2014

Accuse me all you like of going off early, but the Roosters will win the comp. For most of the season, I doubted they had what it takes to achieve that rugby league rarity – successive premierships – but they won me over completely last Saturday night. The Roosters’ famed defence of 2013 turned up […]
