The bigger Wallabys had threatened, but the Seagals held true to their word of using mobility as a weapon.
"Our plan was just to work as a team and we knew that they had bigger forwards than us, but we have a very agile front row," Johnston said.
"So we kind of hit them up the centre, wore them down and then sent them through to our backs who finished it off quite well."
Johnston added that the defence stood up under a Wallabys' seige 'four or five times'.
"We had them 10 (metres) out, but our defence just compressed and stayed strong and we didn't give them the opportunity to pass it out," she said.
Seagals' coach William Jamieson said his captain always leads by example, but Seagals had many contributors.
"She's a worker and she would of had over 30 tackles in a game and probably 20 hit-ups and 10 of them were assists," he said.
"Crystal McGregor was another work horse for me and our halves played really well with Vassa Hunter and Prue Maeyke.
"The girls played well as a team."
Wallabys mentor Danny Burns was nothing but full of compliments for Seagals.
"Tannum played well and we had our opportunities," he said.
"I can't speak highly enough of Tannum and they came out with a plan."
