Why did we even cut loose Paul Turner?

Media reported his debut as the best since Stacey Jones.

And dont tell me. It was to get Reese. Surely we could have had both on our books and not needed to sign volkman and co.

He turned down our superior financial offer because the people advising him thought he'd have better opportunities at the Titans. His brother also plays on the GC too

Why does our club do anything. Never an explanation.

I think he felt we werent in a good place and he good do better in Qld.

Right then and there thanks to the CEO we werent, we had let all our halves and Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad go, then publicly ridiculed Shaun Johnson on twitter for a salary the club OFFERED him. Dysfunctional or what.

We are paying for George to learn how RL Clubs work.

That is pretty much why I think, cant blame him tbh.... I hope he makes a go of it quick smart, ultra talented very quick player.

Are you married to Paul Turner?
Dont make me get up there Chris....... rofl

No but I was gutted we lost him, but hes one of so many. We really do need our NZ RL to align to the Warriors, we never got that right from the start, the Warriors seen as the elite level for NZ players to get to.. That is how Paul Turner felt.

Get back to a NZ Warriors team made up of the NZRL competition players, have them compete in the NSW cup, just like NewCastle does. Newcastle as a city is only 300k but a massive rural area Maitland etc, so prob have more of a player pool than NZ. They do well in not losing their local talent.

I thought he had an elusive side to his game, a shame he hasn't kicked on. Maybe there's a slight attitude problem?

Yeah i would say more of an attitude thing and from my own opinion, only knew how to play in broken play but in a grinding game, had no idea what to do. Wasnt at NRL level mentally but physically he has all the talent and skill. A lot like a Lolohea 2.0 to be honest

Will Smith to leave the Titans immediately. That helps Paul Turner's chances of getting a run this year before Foran arrives in '23
Strange. released for personal reasons. I actually thought he was better at 6 than Brimson.
And Jayden Cmpbell their fullback now injured.
Smith is better than Asi or Chanel Harris-Tavita in my book -mind you only my opinion.

Manu ma’u looking got a new club. Be an upgrade on Ben Murdoch-Masila. Bigger motor, scary mofo.

Can anyone remember why he was never allowed to play away games for the Vulcans because of his convictions but then he was able to sign for the eels? Wtf was all that about?
Thurston was asked who his toughest opponent was and he named ma’u- could’ve been a ten year warrior.
Brining him back at 33 would be such a warriors move- we always miss the boat.
