He is still on his probationary licence and was alone in the car at time, believed to be returning home from his brother’s house .

“Kayne is extremely remorseful and embarrassed by his actions,” Kangaroos Director of Football Geoff Walsh said.
“He is fully aware that his decision to get behind the wheel could have put lives at risk.
“His poor judgement and decision making has let many people down.
“While he fully co-operated with police and notified the club immediately, he’ll now have to work extremely hard to regain the trust and respect of his teammates and peers.
“On top of the sanctions imposed by police, the club will consider a penalty in consultation with the leadership group and senior management.”
Turner’s car was impounded and he is expected to lose his licence for up to 13 months.
Turner has played 21 career games with the Roos since making his debut in 2014. He has played two games this season and is currently out with a hamstring injury.
