One thing for certain we are extremely light in the 6/7 and anyone that thinks Pete or rankin are the answer to the back up can't have watched enough of us last year terrible at time.
We need two young half backs with potential who can progress and not rely on playing players out of position to plug gaps as Wells as let all other half backs go i presume he will announce a couple to replace them shortly...
Let's hope so.it would be bad management if casf didn't have back up half.

Jon Wells has not let anybody go, this is down to the coaches and directors and he is not responsible for signing players, so will not be announcing any new arrivals.

Looks like Powell wants to use Turner as backup in the halves.

I hope Turner can apply himself to a position other than full back.

On the rare occasions he played other than that role for us I seriously questioned his attitude and commitment.

His body language was negative, he seemed unhappy and out of his depth.
I remember Peter Small

Turner I thought did well when he turned out for the team and scored a really nice try on a very slick move bounding through off the shoulder which was the only time I saw them execute that move which was a shame they didn’t try it more often

He got threw under the bus shortly after when he had a poor game on the wing cant remember who it was against ,he didnt brake no pots in the games he had at full back last year but the team wasnt playing well hard to ask a young full back to make the difference with the way the other backs were playing

I’m not surprised it’s square peg in a round hole again! I’ve watched Callum since he was around 14 and I’ve seen nothing to suggest he could play half back.
Hope it works out for him

what have we to loose trying Turner at half back in our second team if it works another home grown player, development of our own players is the way to go, my son and i will most likely be watching the second team i will see how he goes then pass comment , still a bloody shame these m second team matches clash with the TV games

No problem Turner playing in halves in reserves but Powell surely can't see him stepping in to the first team there when the inevitable injuries occur.
So we have gone from having 5 genuine halves to 2, talk about forward planning....

Really we have Mata’utia, Mcshane n Rankin that can all fill in at half back for the odd game so that puts Turner 6th choice atm. Lets just hope Ricco n Truey can stay fit for best part of season.

None you mention are genuine halves, I wonder how many other teams will run with only 2 halves, but it seems strange when over the last 2 seasons it was deemed by the coaching set up we needed 5.

Don't think it's halfs we will end up finishing short. I have no confidents in are three quarters if Shenton or Blair get long time jury or not performing not much cover at all a actual centre who plays there
