Turnbull Targets Improvements

ImageAndrew Turnbull expressed his relief at scoring his third try of the season during the Magners League victory at Cardiff and revealed he has targeted improvements to his all-round game during the second half of the season.

The diminutive winger started off the season in prolific form and crossed the whitewash in Edinburgh's opening two games of the season.

But since then he has experienced a try drought until he latched onto an opening in the early stages of Friday night's mudbath at the Arms Park and hurtled over to score.

Turnbull admits he was delighted to get back on the try-scoring stakes, but revealed he feels he can get better in 2008 by learning from his on-field mistakes.

Speaking exclusively to www.edinburghrugby.org, Turnbull said: "It is nice to be back in there and I think it was one of the easiest tries that I will ever score. All the hard work was done by Webbo (Simon Webster), Cairnsy (Ben Cairns) and Phil (Godman) and all I had to do was just finish off from about 10 metres out.

"In those conditions, some teams might not expect you to move the ball like that. Cardiff were surprised and it turned out well.

'the conditions made it difficult, although it was a bit better in the second half when the rain stopped. It wasn't the best and it became a bit of a dogfight. When that happens it is all about your attitude and how you go about the job; you just get on with it.

'this season has gone really well for me; I"ve played pretty much every game so far, so I can't complain. I"m playing alright I suppose. I still make a few stupid mistakes every now and then, so if I can cut those out then I will be a lot happier."
