I see his days being numbered.
Genuinely like him, but he's a handbrake on the team with him only being able to kick it confidently 35 metres.He’s not doing enough either way
I personally don’t want turner front and cente. His kicks will constantly drop short in the goal square, instead of sailing thru. Not his fault he can’t kick it over 35m.We should've went hard at Tyson Stengle. We need a pressure small who can actually impact the scoreboard.
Turner just does not get front and centre anywhere near enough.
If you can't kick crumbing goals from 40m out as a small forward then you shouldn't be on an AFL list. Harsh, but its the truth.I personally don’t want turner front and cente. His kicks will constantly drop short in the goal square, instead of sailing thru. Not his fault he can’t kick it over 35m.
He's fallen in to WBC status. There's no chance he gets dropped and there's no one better to replace him anyway.If he doesn't pass off an easy goal to Jack Ziebell then he would have had 14 touches and two goals. This is after a JLT series where he kicked three goals and could have had a fourth if he didn't gift one to Jasper Pittard.
I don't get the hate for him when he's arguably been our best forward so far.
I'd actually say he's one of our main problems. He is a forward that provides no options, so our mids are more likely to do more predictable kicks.Running into open goal to put us within 18 points, halfway through the second. We'd had a good couple of minutes. Bit of momentum. Needs to just kick the goal or put it to Brown's advantage. Kicks it to Brown's man. They go coast to coast. That was the game.
He kicked a goal at least. He tries hard but he has limitations.
He is actually the least of our problems but the fact he is one of the first picked tells us something. Something about the coach and how he thinks...
Turners skillset is his fitness, hardness and fearlessness. In general play his kickings not to bad and he does make good decisions under pressure.If you can't kick crumbing goals from 40m out as a small forward then you shouldn't be on an AFL list. Harsh, but its the truth.
He wouldn't even get a game in Gold Coasts forward line at present.
He passed it off because he didn't think he could make the distance. I was disappointed he didn't take the shot. It was only a practice match and a goal from just on his range would have done his confidence the world of good.could have had a fourth if he didn't gift one to Jasper Pitttard.
