Tipping Turpin to look better with Reynolds calling the shots. He is still an improvement on Macca.
In attack maybe, but in defence, definitely not. I actually think they more or less even one another out. Turpin has time to improve, but he's hardly a world beater and simply being(very arguably) better than his 30+ year old predecessor is hardly a huge bar to jump over.

Turpin’s defence doesn’t really need improvement. His numbers are massive and aren’t just padded out by being 3rd man into a tackle when it’s already almost completed.

Turps a chance to play again after rehab for a few weeks, Staggs MCL and probably won’t be back this season. Same knee as the ACL but only MCL affected

These constant injuries for Staggs are becoming VERY concerning.

not really.

this is just one of those unlucky injuries that can happen when you have 100kg bodies flying all over the place. one lands in the wrong place and injuries happen.

i'd be much more concerned if it was repeated ACL's, hamstrings, Achilles etc ... injuries that tend to occur when nobody is around you

The difference in Turpin vs McCullough at the start was very distinct. Turpin cut down blokes while Macca hopped on for a ride. Whether he was correctly positioned or not I don't remember so well.

come on where potentially wasting our once a decade 'not guilty' verdict on Levi who wasn't even facing a suspension.

p.s. he actually got charged for the way he ran the ball ... when the **** was the last time anyone got charged for that FMD

JWH and Klemmer should have permanent suspensions if they're going to report runs.

From NRL.com

"Waerea-Hargreaves avoided a one-game suspension for a dangerous contact charge after pleading not guilty to the charge at the judiciary.

Manly hooker Danny Levi was also successful in challenging a fine at the judiciary for the same offence."

No wonder he got off, they forgot he plays for us.

They didn't want the appearance of favouritism.
