Turner still in league limbo

Winger Steve Turner remains in league limbo with the Gold Coast Titans continuing to refuse his proposal of financial compensation as well as the Storm's offer of a junior player.

Turner had hoped Wallabies star Mat Rogers' early defection this week back to league would ease the new NRL club's position on his future. The tug-of-war started back in June after Turner agreed to play with Gold Coast but then signed a contract to stay with Melbourne for personal reasons.

The NRL finalists won't allow Turner to train with the club until the matter is resolved, leaving the 22-year-old to train by himself. Storm chief executive Brian Waldron says there's no time frame on a resolution but he hopes common-sense will prevail.
