A versatile utility man, Kayne Turner made his name at North Melbourne as a small pressure forward.

A rookie draft selection in 2014, Turner’s gritty, hard-nosed style of play and team first attitude personify many aspects of the Shinboner spirit.

With his birthday falling on December 31, Turner was the youngest player in his draft class, and was still completing his VCE when he made his debut in Round 20, 2014.

After his debut, Turner would go onto play in all three finals North contested in 2014, suffering defeat to Sydney in the preliminary final.

Eventually cementing himself as one of first names on the team sheet under Brad Scott, Turner played 21 games in his first three seasons on the list, before a breakout 2017 campaign where he played 15 games and kicked 17 goals.

After missing one game in the next two seasons, he missed the entirety of the 2020 campaign with a foot injury, before rebounding in 2021.

North Melbourne debut: Round 20, 2014

2021: After missing the entirety of the 2020 season, Kayne Turner came back into North’s best 22 without missing a beat, fulfilling different roles across the season.

Whether in his traditional forward role, a tagging role in midfield, or as a lockdown defender, Turner’s ability to put the needs of the team before his own saw him win the Harold Henderson Best Clubman Award.

While his exceptional 27 disposal, 5 clearance performance in midfield could have seen him take up a permanent role as a tagger, he settled into defence in the second half of the year, often man-marking the opposition’s most dangerous small-forward.

Personal victories against the likes of Charlie Cameron and Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti ensued as he quickly established himself as the side’s go-to lockdown defender.

After a season enhancing his versatility, Turner looks to have found something of a permanent home in defence, with his foot skills and decision making complementing his aggressive, contested style of football.
