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

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

3 days ago

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

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. […]

Despite moderate success in his three seasons at Newcastle, Bennett was clearly the best coach on the market and the Broncos would have […]

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.
