Kyle "Big Dog" "Velcro" Turner - South Sydney Player Report

Second Row

FG Player - 1100

Turner was a one time South Sydney premiership winner in 2014, who also won the NRL 9s with South Sydney in 2015. He was one of the quality crop of young players of the 2014 campaign before neck injury during the 2015 Indigenous all-stars game put him out for most of the 2015 season. He will be remembered for his tackling ability where his tackles would stick like "velcro". After his neck injury he continued to suffer from concussion symtoms and wore a protective neck protector late in his career before finally retiring.
