IN THE crowd at Twickenham on Saturday – you may have seen them on the television as they would not have been hard to spot – were a group of pals from Belper Rugby Club dressed up as characters from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

It might have ended in ‘Turtle’ heartbreak for England’s rugby union team against rivals Wales, but this lot enjoyed themselves.

A last-gasp ‘try’ from England winger David Strettle was chalked off by the video referee to leave the home side on the wrong end of a 19-12 defeat.

Perhaps some ‘Turtle Power’ on the pitch for England would have seen Wales taken to the ‘Shredder’.

Rebecca Matthews, whose mum made the striking outfits over a very busy few weeks, said: “As you can see in the picture, they were really excited.

“We wanted to share this with the Belper community!”
