THE game had everything – good forward hits, great backline running, wonderful defence, great scrambling defence, trys, penalties and non-penalties.
Now everyone is waiting for another match between the two foes.
Turtles are a powerhouse team – they showed it on the night.
You don’t win five premierships without being an excellent team.
