He has seen snippets of first-grade but Paul Turner will undoubtedly have the chance to add to his tally after signing with the Gold Coast Titans.

Turner, who made his NRL debut with the New Zealand Warriors, is an exciting back-line prospect who is capable of covering multiple positions.

Titans coach Justin Holbrook knows that we could have seen much more of Turner at the Warriors if it was not for a shoulder injury.

“To have Paul Turner join our Club is very exciting, he had a few clubs to choose from and he chose to become a Titan,” Holbrook said.

“Paul is a young player that we would have seen a lot more of this year had he not been injured.

Holbrook also praised Turner’s versatility and skillful ability, believing he can be an asset for the Titans.

“Paul is versatile where he plays, he prefers the halves but he is equally as good at centre or fullback,” Holbrook continued.

“That’s what you need in a player, as squads now we use a lot of players, so you need players that are versatile and can play a number of positions and Paul fills that role.

“He’s a really hard runner of the football that is extremely skillful, so that’s a really good mix especially with the new rules and how fast the game is getting.”
