Storm brewing over Turner
Sportal


League leader Melbourne may be rapt to have re-signed Steve Turner for three years but the deal has angered new franchise, the Gold Coast Titans, who believed they had secured the winger's services in June.

The Titans spruiked Turner's recruitment on June 19, declaring that he was going to pen a three-year contract with the Queensland team, but the 21-year-old never signed anything according to the Storm.

Titans managing director Michael Searle will meet with NRL chief executive David Gallop to express his grievances over the Turner issue.

"It's come to light overnight that Steve Turner may have entered into an agreement to play the next three years with the Storm," Searle told reporters on the Gold Coast.


"That's contrary to the agreement that he has with our organisation and whilst deeply disappointing, we intend to resolve this matter in coming days."

"What I want to reaffirm is that there's no doubt Steve Turner made a commitment to this organisation to play football here for the next three years and we'll be working with the National Rugby League to ensure our rights are protected."

"Other than that we'll be making further comment tomorrow and we'll be putting out a release tomorrow. At this stage that's all I can say."

Turner has been in stellar form with the Storm this year, racking up 10 tries in his 19 league apperances, and Melbourne football manager Peter O'Sullivan has expressed his excitement about the re-signing to AAP.

"We're thrilled to bits. We never wanted to lose him in the first place," O'Sullivan said.

"We're tickled pink to have him on board again. He's a great person and he wants to be part of our organisation."

"He's playing on the wing and he can see himself playing rep footy there."
