Turner to meet with NRL

Defiant Melbourne winger Steve Turner will meet with NRL boss David Gallop on Wednesday to present his side of the story in the bitter tug-of-war for his services between the Gold Coast Titans and the Storm.

The NRL has sided with the Titans, who say they're willing to offer Turner a release after one season if he's unhappy on the Gold Coast. Gallop says he'll discuss the matter with Turner, Storm coach Craig Bellamy and club boss Brian Waldron but warns he won't be softening his stance.

Turner agreed to join the Titans on a three-year deal only to change his mind and re-sign with the Storm until the end of 2009.
