Titans losing patience with recalcitrant Turner

Gold Coast Titans will withdraw their offer to release defiant Melbourne winger Steve Turner at the end of the 2007 season if he pursues legal action against the NRL club.

Turner will meet with NRL boss David Gallop in Sydney on Wednesday morning to plead his case in the bitter contractual dispute between Gold Coast and the Storm. Gold Coast managing director Michael Searle says he's losing patience with Turner and will fine the 22-year-old if he fails to show up at training on Monday.

The Titans are willing to offer the Penrith junior a release after one season if he's unhappy on the Gold Coast.
