All the praise put on Walsh there is something not unexpected given what we've seen/heard so far .. but I really love this quote from Turner which speaks to what his impact on the team could be:



Call me optimistic but I reckon we're already starting to see some evidence of this happening.
If he’d been born on the surf coast, Mick Turner would have told you that Josh Bootsma was a certain all Australian.

Seriously why make the comparison.

Hands the pipe back...
The post was clearly in reference to Turner being an unabashed cheerleader for all things Geelong Falcons. To the point of comedy.

If you want to read my thoughts re Walsh, go a page back.

Yeah i get that Turner is a huge fanboy of his own players but I don't think that invalidates this quote since we already have strong indication from the club that his training standards are indeed through the roof. It's bound to have some effect on the other young players around him.
