2013

  • Summary

    The Turbos took 3 rounds to open their account in 2013, after a close loss to Auckland and a last quarter blowout in Wellington the Turbos squeezed out North Harbour at home 15-12.

    The team was able to follow up with a win in the next round versus Southland in a game that saw the Turbos wear a unique jersey to help raise money for the local children’s ward. 

    Following their two wins the Turbos played in the highest scoring try-fest of the season against Otago in Dunedin. A back a forth affair the Turbos were just edged out by two last minute tries going down
    41-52. The energy put into the Dunedin clearly showed against Canterbury who breezed past the Green and White. Disappointed with their efforts away from home the Turbos restored faith beating Taranaki And then Northland in Palmerston North making 2013 the Turbos second most successful season.

    In order to secure a playoff spot the Turbos required a win against the inform and eventual champions Tasman in Nelson. The task would prove too much for the green and white as they ended their season outside the semi-final placing.
