Marrar swingman Brad Turner.
MARRAR’S revolving door continues to spin as the club loses another big name to injury.
Bombers swingman Brad Turner is facing a nervous wait to learn the severity of a shoulder injury sustained during Saturday’s win over Northern Jets.
He has battled ongoing shoulder problems for some time and inflamed the injury at the weekend.
Turner will sit out Saturday’s Farrer League blockbuster against Coleambally and has booked in to consult a specialist next week.
Marrar coach Clint Taylor says the club will do everything in its power to have Turner fit in time for finals.
“At this stage it’s about looking to the future more than anything,” Taylor said.
“If Turns has to have the next two weeks off so he can play finals, well that’s a better option for us.”
Turner now joins Daniel Fox in the casualty ward after the latter injured his hamstring at the weekend.
Question marks remain over the heads of Ben Langtry (work) and Chase Macintosh (ribs) who were also casualties of Saturday’s win.
On the other side of the coin, the Bombers should welcome back young midfielder Callum Gardner and experienced defenders Jarrod Gornall and Andrew White.
Gardner sat last week out with concussion and Gornall was unavailable for the game, while White has spent time on the sideline with a hamstring injury.
Marrar will run out its strongest possible team as it looks to bring down competition leader Coleambally for the third time this season.

The Bombers well and truly hold the wood on the Blues this year, although they snuck across the line by three points when they travelled to Coleambally in round one.
The two clubs are a chance of meeting during finals but Taylor says there’s much more than “mental advantage” on the line this weekend.
“We need to win if we want to finish top-three, basically,” Taylor said.
“That’s what it comes down to, that’s how important this game is for us.
“If we don’t beat Coly this week then we don’t finish top-three and we don’t get two bites of the cherry come finals.”
Marrar is currently in third place on the ladder but only just ahead of East Wagga-Kooringal on percentage.
A win could potentially send them into second place above Temora, but a loss would almost certainly dump the Bombers to fourth.
