In My Opinion.....#3 Jordan Turner
Next player to come under the IMO spotlight is relative newcomer Jordan Turner. Lets have your thoughts on the ex Hull FC centre.

To be honest, I am yet to speak to a Saints fan who doesn't think that there is potential there with Turner. He's played in a Saints side this season that came into the season with two 'out and out' props (one being Josh Perry), and without a recognised Scrum-Half at the club. Despite that, he has shown signs that we can expect good things from him. He has shown plenty of promise with ball in hand, and despite injuries to those inside him, the defensive side of his game has improved dramatically since he signed for the club. With a bit more space, and hopefully with some improved combinations inside him next season, hopefully he can kick on and turn into the strike centre that people hope he can be.

Is he a Jamie Lyon or Matt Gidley? No, but it would be unfair to expect him to be. He is an inprovment on Shenton, and he has looked more dangerous with far less quality ball to work with. He's got nice footwork, and he has shown that he is capable of finding an offload. As I say, big things expected off him next season.

He is a filler player... Stains will sign a decent centre soon enough... It's there trade mark.

Shenton isnt a strike player..shenton is defensivley one of the best in the league but relies on others to make a half gap..turner is different..and this is why maybe you lot are soft defensivley...

To be fair to turner he is getting better after a very poor start I reckon he will end up being a very good player eventually.

Shenton was decent when we signed him, but for whatever reason he didn't bring that form to Saints. Decent defensively, but offered nothing in the way of attack. That broken arm in the 2011 Grand Final fucked up his 2012. Never fully recovered from that.

We've lost shenton so now we can't defend?

If he hadn't gone off in the GF, you'd have won

RE: In My Opinion.....#3 Jordan Turner
A player who looks to have a good future ahead of him, i find him decent in attack and missing in defence. Is he a decent player and good enough for Saints today? No....Is he going to be a decent player and one thats good enough for Saints? Yes

Just have to wait
