LAST Sunday was a good day for the Dolphins with victory secured in all grades over the highly competitive Burleigh club.The Colts kicked proceeding off racing to an astonishing 46 points to nil lead by half time. The first half was one of those rare occasions when everything fell in favour of the Dolphins as they racked up an unassailable lead scoring some entertaining tries along the way. The second half didn?t quite go as scripted with a spirited performanceby Burleigh which saw the visitors register 24 unanswered points for a final score line of 46 points to 24. Best for the Dolphins were Dysart recruit Logan Sullivan who received the LEADING EDGE SPORTS Man of the Match award along with Joel Romelo who followed on from the previous week?s performance while Captain Tim Benson put in his usual tireless display. Today games presents the sides biggest challenge to date when they meet the fancied North?s outfit and the Dolphins will be eager to continue with their solid early season form.The A Grades 30 points to 28 win over the previously undefeated Burleigh side is one of the most pleasing wins the Club has experienced in a number of seasons. A list of the Clubs injured players includes Adam Starr, Duane O?Grady, Danny Green, Mark Shipway, Richard Russell, Chris Giumelli and Clint Frazer while Lucas Dearden and Sam Fillery were unavailable for selection, the loss of these players impacts directly on the A Grade. The players who took the field last week, some of whom hadn?t played since the trials, turned in an extremely gritty and determined performance. It?s hard to single out players in this game however Dominic Fallini had a tremendous game and received the HOGS BREATH CAFE Man of the Match award. Michael Pares, Scott Gillis and Mitchell Simpson also deserve special mention. The fact that all these guys are graduates of last years Colts side is another positive to come out of this game. Anthony Griffins Premier Grade outfit continued their solid start to the season with a victory over to an out of sorts Burleigh. A strong first half effort saw the Dolphins go to the break with a 24-6 advantage. The game fell away a little in the second stanza with neither side being able to take control of the match, the Dolphins were able to post 2 converted tries to Burleighs 1 to give the game its final score-line of 36-10. Gerard Parle continues to improve and received the SEARLES GARDEN PRODUCTS Player of the Match award for a rugged display while the ever reliable Danny Burke was voted the KEYSTAR AUTOWORLD Players Player. This week?s game against Norths is the first televised game of the season and shapes as a good contest, the Devils will be keen to right the ship after a close loss to Tweed while Dolphins fans can be confident the team will be keen to continue on their winning way. The management and staff of the Redcliffe Dolphins would like to thank everybody who donated to our Cyclone Larry Appeal in total the Club raised $15,934.00.This weeks teamsQueensland Wizard Cup1.

A strong showing by the Dolphins at Langlands Park last Saturday saw the Red and Whites walk away with 2 wins and a draw.The Colts continued their promising start to the season with a 32-24 win over the previously unbeaten East?s outfit. It was a tight encounter that was up for grabs until a try in the dying minutes secured the game for the young Dolphins. Most pleasing for Coach Craig Ingebrigtsen has been the sides discipline after early season games saw the team conceding too many unnecessary penalties. Back rower Foisa Peni (Pictured) was dominant throughout the game and received the LEADING EDGE SPORTS Man of the Match award while young hooker Joel Romelo excelled in his first game of senior football laying on a nice try for Captain Tim Benson. Another challenge awaits the side this weekend when they will be without half Asher Elemani and Dane Hogan who are away with the AIS squad for the match against the traditionally strong Burleigh.A much improved A Grade side scrabbled an 18 all draw in the final minutes of play with a bullocking try to prop Darren Glase. The side?s defense was a vast improvement on the week before and although the sides attack still needs some work there were some encouraging signs for Coach Grant Cleal. Centre convert Matt Mannion had a strong game at lock picking up the HOGS BREATH CAFE Man of the Match award and received strong support from Pat McGill and Lucas Dearden. The Dolphins tackle the unbeaten Burleigh side this weekend and will be keen to build on the gains made last weekend.A powerful first 10 minutes and final 20 saw the Premier Grade post a forceful 48 points to 22 win over the East?s Tigers last week. Slipping out to an early 16 nil lead the Dolphins looked to be comfortable before the Tigers fought back on their home soil to tie the game up 22 all mid way through the second half. This sparked the Dolphins into action piling on 26 unanswered points by the time the final hooter sounded. New recruit Pat Gardner was a stand out and was rewarded for his effort by grabbing both the SEARLES GARDEN PRODUCTS Player of the Match and KEYSTAR AUTOWORLD Players Player awards while Mick Roberts is starting to look at home in the hooking role with some solid defense and darting runs from dummy half, Shane Perry also deserves mention and was constantly asking questions of the Tigers defensive line. This week the side tackles last year?s grand finalists Burleigh and will be looking to avenge a heavy defeat at the hands of the Bears in the corresponding game last year. Saturday April 15 Premier Grade game represents the first televised game of the season when the Dolphins travel to Bishop Park to tackle Norths. The A Grade and Colts also take on the Devils with all 3 games sure to be closely contested matches.This weeks sides vs Burleigh at Dolphin Oval areQueensland Wizard Cup1. Ryan Cullen 2.

THE Dolphins prevailed in 2 of the 3 games on offer last weekend with the Colts and Premiers Grade running out winners while an out of sorts A Grade went down in their match against the Western District Panthers.Craig Ingebrigsten?s Colts outfit were comfortable winners in the end with a margin of 42-16. The halftime scores were locked at 16 all however the Dolphins were able to pile on 26 unanswered points on the back of a heavy penalty count in their favour. David Hala was outstanding in his first outing for the Dolphins receiving the LEADING EDGE SPORTS Player of the Match award. Others to impress were Foisa Peni and Asher Elemani who has started the year in solid form. Today presents a good test for the side when they meet undefeated competition leaders Easts on their home turf.A disappointing first half performance by A Grade saw the side go to the sheds at half time trailing 22 nil. A much improved second half allowed the Dolphins to add some respectability to the scoreboard however to Wests credit they hung onto to their lead and were eventual 28-20 winners. James Douglas was tireless for the Dolphins receiving the HOGS BREATH CAFE Man of the Match award and received good support from Mark Christensen at fullback who is progressing well from a knee reconstruction. Today should see an improved showing from the side starting from kick off.The Comets began last weeks Premier Grade game in a blur accelerating to a 24 nil lead by the 20 minute mark. To their credit the Dolphins dragged themselves off the matt and registered 38 unanswered points before conceding a late converted try for a final scoreline of 38 points to 30. A confusing trend in the penalty count must be mentioned with the Dolphins being heavily adjudicated in the opening exchanges before seeing the penalties swing in their favour throughout the second half which may go a little way to explaining the large fluctuation in scores. That said Coach Anthony Griffin was impressed with the way his charges kept their composure chasing a large deficit despite not being overly convincing in their execution. Best for the Dolphins was Grant Flugge who had a whale of game receiving the SEARLES GARDEN PRODUCTS Player of the Match while Captain Shane Perry delivered some crucial blows to the Comets when it counted and was voted KEYSTAR AUTOWORLD Players Player. Today shapes as a tight contest with Easts registering 2 wins and a draw in the opening rounds to sit 1 point ahead of the Dolphins on the competition ladder. The side will welcome back Pat Gardner after suspension and veteran Troy Lindsay is also an outside chance of playing.Round 5 action sees the Dolphins return home to Dolphin Oval in what should be a great days footy with the Burleigh Bears travelling north to the Peninsula. The Bears are sure to provide strong opposition and we expect a good crowd on hand to witness the action. This weeks teamsQueensland Wizard Cup1. Ryan Cullen 2. Alwyn Simpson 3. Greg Bourke 4.

THE Dolphins opened the season with wins in all grades at Ipswich last weekend. All 3 games were tough encounters and it was pleasing for the coaches their sides were able to walk away with 2 points.The Colts jumped out of the blocks well slipping out to a halftime lead of 14-6. The Jets worked themselves back into the game leading 16-14 midway through the second half before a tense finish saw the Dolphins run out eventual winners 20 points to 14.The side will need to improve its discipline in the future with too many unnecessary penalties. Matt Handcock and Tom Donnelly will spend 3 weeks on the sidelines after an unfortunate tackle while Captain Tim Benson proved the sides best collecting the LEADING EDGE SPORTS Man of the Match. This week sees the Dolphins tackling the Western District Panthers for the first home game of the season.The A Grade encounter was a rugged affair with both sides playing the game in a physical style. The Dolphins finished 34-14 winners after playing the final 25 minutes with 12 men after Richie Russell was sent off. It was a solid effort from the Dolphins as the game was still a tight contest when Richie left the field, Coach Grant Cleal was impressed with the way the side put the game beyond doubt in the circumstances. Dominic Fallini continued his impressive trial form receiving the HOGS BREATH CAFE Man of the Match award off the bench, Dom was well supported by NZ recruit Kaine Manihera and Mark Shipway who unfortunately picked up a rib cartilage injury. The team also tackles the Western District Panthers this weekend who will be keen to register their first win.The Premier Grade side completed the trifecta with a hard fought win over the Jets to the tune of 34 points to 12. The game was a good contest despite the scoreline with the Dolphins relying on a determined defensive effort to shut out Ipswich on their home soil. The win has come a cost with Clint Frazer badly separating the AC joint in his shoulder, Danny Green also suffered a shoulder injury while Pat Gardner will miss one week through suspension, Duane O?Grady was thought to have broken the scaffoid in his left hand however tests have cleared him of a break. Winger Adam Fletcher was solid on debut for the Dolphins receiving the KEYSTAR AUTOWORLD Players Player award and evergreen forward Adam Starr proved his worth again with his SEARLES GARDEN PRODUCTS Player of the Match performance, others to impress were Danny Burke and centres Greg Bourke and Nick Emmett. This week provides a real test for the Dolphins depth with a number of player?s unavailable to confront the Central Comets who will be champing at the bit after downing the Burleigh Bears for the first time last weekend. The first home games of the season shape as good encounters and with the Wizard Family Day promotion on we can expect a good crowd on hand for their first fix of Dolphin Oval footy for the year.This weeks teamsQueensalnd Wizard Cup1.

ROUND 1 of the competitions saw the Dolphins sit the weekend out with the first up bye however this weekend sees the Club traveling west to tackle Ipswich in 3 grades who are sure to provide stiff competition after bolstering their ranks in the off-season with guys looking for an opportunity with the Titans in 2007.Last weekend wasn?t wasted with the Club holding its season launch in the Des Webb Lounge of the Redcliffe Leagues Club on Friday. The event was well attended and the Dolphins would like to thank EMERALD Executive Chairman Eddy Faress, Mark Schulman from PAYNTER DIXON and Howard White from IGT for coming along. Thanks also to the players, staff, coaches and their partners for making the night an enjoyable occasion.This seasons Colts side is a young, talented outfit and should play their best footy towards the back end of the season. This is not to say they won?t do well early as we are sure they will it will just take a few rounds for the younger guys in the squad to adjust to the standard of competition they are now in. Some of the guys to keep an eye on this year will be Matt Gillett, Foisa Peni, Asher Elemani, Phil Daisy and Logan Sullivan. Enjoy the year boys, we are sure you will do the Dolphins proud.Grant Cleal?s A Grade squad go into the Ipswich match with some patchy trial form behind them. With an injury free senior squad at the moment the players will be keen to impress for selection in the Premier Grade when the opportunity arises and our supporters should see an improvement in the team?s performance this weekend. It?s great to see a number of last seasons Colts progress into the side with Scott Gillis, Brad Massey and Dominic Fallini all featuring.The Premier Grade confronts a bit of an unknown with the Jets not giving much away throughout the off-season. The word is the Jets will field a young side with a number of players making the move into the QLD Wizard Cup from the Premier League in Sydney. Dolphins Coach Anthony Griffin has been happy with the player?s application and anticipates an improved level of competition this season with the Jets providing the first insight into how the Dolphins stack up in 2006. Off season signings Marty Turner, Pat Gardner, Adam Fletcher and Alwyn Simpson are the new faces in the squad for the first fixture and have been rewarded for some good form in the trials.Congratulations to Shane Perry on making his debut for the Broncos last weekend against the Cowboys, unfortunately the result didn?t quite go as he would have liked however he can be proud of his effort. Shane?s elevation into the Broncos has provided a timely reminder to the rest of the players of the value the new Dolphins/Broncos affiliation provides and of opportunities that are available.Don?t forget to come down to Dolphin Oval for the round 3 games when the Western District Panthers take on our lower grades in the Fogs Cups and the Premier Grade come up against the Central Comets in the QLD Wizard Cup.This weeks teamsQueensland Wizard Cup1.

IT WAS a case of a perfect marriage between the old and the new at the Redcliffe Dolphins 2006 season launch .
THE Brisbane Broncos have joined forces with the Redcliffe Rugby League Club to foster the further development of rugby league on the northern Brisbane peninsula.In an historic agreement signed today, two clubs once seen as fierce rivals have linked together for what they believe will be for the betterment of the game in Queensland. Redcliffe recently severed a similar link with NRL heavyweights, the Sydney Roosters.Broncos Managing Director Bruno Cullen joined Redcliffe football club James Hinchey in announcing that the two rugby league clubs had entered in to a partnership agreement whereby the Broncos would provide extensive support, in a working relationship, to the Dolphins. The support from the Broncos will not be financial, but totally resource related.?We believe we can assist the Redcliffe club in many ways and in doing so rugby league ? at all levels ? will benefit from this relationship,? Mr Cullen said.?In the past three years the Broncos have formed similar partnerships with three other clubs in Brisbane and not only have the relationships flourished, but rugby league has benefited greatly with junior numbers in Brisbane at record levels. To have a very strong and influential club like Redcliffe joining forces with us, is a major bonus for both clubs.?However Mr Cullen stressed that the affiliation would not affect the status of either club in the Queensland Cup or other affiliated senior competitions.?This relationship is not about changing the status of either club insofar as competitive rugby league is concerned,? he said.?Despite speculation in some quarters, the Broncos will continue to play in the Queensland Cup under the banner of the Toowoomba Clydesdales, and Redcliffe will obviously remain as the Dolphins. And we will still be the fierce rivals we have always been.?But there will be opportunities for Redcliffe players to be dual registered with the Broncos, opening a genuine opportunity for them to play NRL if the situation presents itself ? as has been the case with Darren Smith for the past two seasons.? Redcliffe president Des Webb described the coming together as a positive step for both clubs and for rugby league in Queensland in general.?The development of our juniors, which includes all our affiliated junior clubs, is an obvious benefit that I am confident will bear fruit for both Redcliffe and the Broncos,? he said.?The other major benefit is the opportunity presented to our senior players to compete in the NRL for a club like the Broncos, under the guidance of a coach such as Wayne Bennett. That is something I am sure will give us an edge with our Queensland Cup aspirations.?I can also assure our supporters we will remain as the Dolphins and will operate as we have always done, but now we will have the added advantages of the Broncos being involved in the development of players within our club structure. As well, the Broncos will be a great sounding board for all aspects of the football club operations, while at the same time offering a genuine pathway to the NRL for all Dolphin players - whether they are seven or 27 - and a pathway that keeps them within Redcliffe, Brisbane and Queensland.? The major areas where the two clubs will work closely together to strengthen rugby league in the Redcliffe area are:? The education of players, coaches and parents, using the extensive resources of the Broncos ? Elite coaching camps for juniors (14-15 years) and seniors (17-18 years)? Further advance the existing Development Squad program for boys from 13 to 18 years, using the specialist staff at the Broncos? Coaching and Development staff from both clubs to work together to conduct coaching clinics and educational programs at primary and secondary schools in the Redcliffe area The agreement will initially be in place until October, 2008
THIS article is courtesy of the Redcliffe and Bayside Herald and written by Joel GouldRedcliffe Dolphins had five players named in the Queensland Cup team of decade function at Suncorp Stadium on grand final day.Shane Perry and Troy Lindsay were named in the side, along with former Dolphins Trent Leis, James Hinchey and Adam Mogg.Perry was selected at five-eighth while Lindsay, who played in the first Queensland Cup season in 1996, was picked at prop. Hinchey was a premiership winning second-rower who retired at the end of 2000 while Mogg, picked at fullback now plays for Canberra in the NRL. Winger Leis, who has played for Redcliffe and Burleigh, lined with the Burleigh Bears in their grand final loss to North Queensland Young Guns.Hinchey, Redcliffe Dolphins chief executive officer, said he was honoured to be in the side but gave credit to the Dolphins club. ?It?s a bit of a mark of respect for what the club has done in the Queensland Cup. We have been a force really,? Hinchey said.?And someone like Shane Perry probably has five years left in him. And as for as Cowboy (Lindsay), he is just going great. He is playing better now than he ever has.?Hinchey said former Redcliffe players such as centre Brian Jellick and forward Grant Cleal were unlucky to miss out. ?If it was up to me I?d probably pick all Redcliffe blokes. But the side they chose is a great one.?Troy Lindsay said there were some unlucky Dolphins forwards not to have made the side. ?Ian Graham and Grant Cleal are a couple who were very unlucky. We?ve dominated the comp for the last ten years so we could?ve got a few more in, but you can only have so many,? he said. ?There are a lot of good players who have made the team as well. It?s a tribute to everyone.?Lindsay, 30, cannot wait for the 2006 season to start. ?I?ll go again, and I?ll probably go again the year after that too? he said. ?It took a while for the team to get going this year but by the end of it, we were full steam ahead.?Queensland Cup Team of the Decade1.

THE Dolphins Premier Grade side booked themselves a spot in the preliminary final against Burleigh after a comprehensive victory over North?s at Bishop Park last Saturday.
THE final rounds of season 2005 didn?t quite go as planned for the Dolphins with the 3 grades going down to Club Champions North?s. Despite the losses there were some positives to come out of last weekend that will give the Club some confidence for this weekends elimination games.
