AFTER another disappointing effort at home last Sunday when the Redcliffe Pepsi Dolphins failed to win a game in any grade only salvaging a draw in the Colts game. I?m sure the coaching staff will get the boys back on track. But it doesn?t get any easier this weekend the Dolphins travel down the M1 to clash with the very strong Burleigh Bears. If both clubs play to their potential in all three grades it should be a fantastic day of football.

Depleted Dolphins to take on Comets

THE Redcliffe Dolphins already without skipper Troy Lindsay also have lost veteran prop Adam Starr Qld u'19 second rower Gavin Cooper and the speedster Joel Barnes for todays clash with the Central Comets at Dolphin Oval but on the positive side it has allowed coach Neil Wharton to call up some players from second grade. The Club's April player of the month Luke Bishop will come into the side along with debutants Mark Brown and Liam Georgetown. Georgetown a speedy winger has been a pointscoring machine in Rob Campbell's A Grade team. While Brown adds to the list of second generation Dolphin first graders. His father former Origin and Test prop Dave Brown will no doubt be looking on from the sidelines today while his son goes into battle for the Dolphins. Dave was a member of the Redcliffe side that played in the last BRL grand final before the inception of the Broncos in 1987.

Dolphins send Jets flying

REDCLIFFE punished Ipswich early in defence to set up their 34-8 win at Dolphin Oval last Saturday. The Dolphins scored four tries in 12 minutes in the lead up to halftime to lead 28-4 at the break. They had earlier unsettled the Jets who had taken a 4-nil lead through a try to former Dolphin Tim Gee from a grubber kick. The Jets started with intent but lost continuity after being repeatedly smashed by a fired up Redcliffe pack that it was keen to show it?s quality after being labelled soft by a couple of Clydesdales players in their encounter last game. The match statistics show that both sides had a fairly even completion rate and time in possession. But the key stat was the miss tackle count which Redcliffe missed 17 and Ipswich 30. It was a big improvement from the last game when the Dolphins missed 45 tackles. Forwards Andrew Wynyard and Nathan Sologinkin impressed early on and hooker Nathan Black showed the speed that Coach Wharton was looking for from the dummy half area. The highlight of the Dolphins first half display apart from Shane Perry?s masterful performance leading the Dolphins around the park from five-eighth, was chase of four or five Dolphin defenders on a Perry kick. Danny Green led the charge and jolted the ball free from a hapless Jet and centre Damien Richters was on hand to score the four pointer. Halfback Michael Roberts also earned the praise of his coach after a disappointing game against Toowoomba. Roberts was back to his best with a strong running game and set up both of Perry?s tries with a deft pass and a clever kick. The Dolphins effort was even more commendable considering the penalty count was 9-1 to the Jets. But it was definitely Shane Perry who was the dominant player on the field on Saturday. He played surperbly behind a forward pack that went forward all day. Perry?s passing and kicking game oozed class throwing the final pass to Phil Shilvock and Trent Leis?s tries.

Comets Give Dolphins a Lesson

A 24-point turnaround in the lead up to halftime spelt disaster for the Pepsi Dolphins in their 38-22 loss to the Central Comets at Dolphin Oval last Sunday. Two intercept tries took the Comets out to a 32-10 lead at the break with both tries length of the field efforts after the Dolphins looked like scoring. The 22 point deficit proved to be too big for the Dolphins despite reducing the margin to 10 points 15 minutes into the second half. But it would be selling the Comets effort short if you said that the two intercepts were the only reasons for first win at Dolphin Oval. They dominated around the middle of ruck with their quick men making the most of the platform laid by their big men. The Dolphins who were without Troy Lindsay, Adam Starr and Gavin Cooper but Coach Neil Wharton refused to use that as excuse either. Wharton was pleased with the efforts of workaholic lock Grant Flugge, winger Phil Shilvock and Damien Richters. But it was in the middle where the Dolphins lost the game where they didn?t defend well enough. And with the A Grade now stringing together 6 wins in a row some of their players must be very close to making the step up to Queensland Cup. On the positive side for the Dolphins Liam Georgetown and Mark Brown made their Queensland Cup debuts. In particular Brown who?s quick play the balls got Redcliffe on a roll on during his stay on the field. Brown is a second generation Dolphin first grader with his father former International Dave Brown having played a season with Redcliffe in 1987. Comets 38 (R.Cullen 3, C.Rothery 2, W. Rothery, R.Bromley tries G.Parle 5 goals) Redcliffe 22 (D.Richters, L.Georgetown, S.Perry tries D.Richters 3 goals)
