Lachlan Turner Try & Lote run

Lachlan Turner Try & Lote run

The Waratahs played in a thriller against the Crusaders on the weekend. If it weren't for some poor play by Peter Hewat (missing a vital conversion and dropping the ball in open play, as well as him & Lote stuffing up an intercept) the Waratahs may have snuck victory.

The 19 year old Lachlan Turner arrived though, scoring a fantastic try in which he outstripped Rico Gear and beat Leon McDonald. Huge potential shown, and a possible find for the Aussies for this years World Cup? Still early days though.

Besides Lote Tuqiri's shocking intercept try attempt, he redeemed himself here with an excellent run and set up a try, showing the skills & strength expected of him, and expected of a guy who gets paid that much.

I hate lachlan turner, the only reason he's soft and scared on the field.

Remember watching Hewat miss the conversion...almost threw the tv out the door..aaaahhhhh!!It was like he didn't care if it would go in or not....just went straight for the kick without doing all those pre-kick rituals that all conversion kickers have to do...like look up and figure the angle at which you have to kickHope they're better this year.
