Premier Rugby: Hooker Turner says Bullsharks can keep dream alive against Easts

By LIZ MOORE

At 27, Nick Turner is the second oldest in the Bond Uni squad but the Gold Coast hooker believes the Bullshark boys have plenty of muscle to match a strong Easts side in this weekend’s knockout semi-final at Ballymore.

The former Australian schoolboy who has played with the club for 11 years starting in its first incarnation as the Gold Coast Breakers, Turner said their 32-27 win against GPS was largely thanks to their forwards.

“Our lineout worked really well,” he said. “Our scrum worked really well. Our forward pack aimed up against the big, pretty dominant pack (of GPS). They really stood up and I think that’s what got us the win.”
