Flanker Reed Prinsep stood in as captain for the Hurricanes tonight.
“I thought we had one of our better performances of the year,” Prinsep said.
“A more complete package in attack and defence. Those backs are pretty special talents. As a forward, when you see that happen, you’re pretty proud.”
Understandably, Kyle Godwin is a subdued Force skipper after the record loss.
“We were our own worst enemies, the Hurricanes are a classy outfit and they pounced on our mistakes,” Godwin said.
“We didn’t trust ourselves enough, we do have the attacking threats. We’ve got the Crusaders next so a lot to review and improve on.
“I felt like the boys went into their shells and we can’t be doing that.”
