Redcliffe will watch the semi finals from the sideline for the first time since 1993 after succumbing to Norths 34 - 14 at Dolphin Oval today.
The Dolphins put in an almighty effort but it was not enough to knock off the second placed Devils. Again Troy Lindsay was the standout and if he was five years younger NRL clubs would be taking a keen interest.
Redcliffe trailed the entire game but fought hard to be in touch trailing 18 - 14 before Norths ran away with the game late in the second half.
Thus ends an amazing era seeing Redcliffe win Premierships in 1994, 1996 (BRL), 1997, 2000, 2002 and 2003 as well as runners up in 1996 (Qld Cup), 1999 and 2001.
As a consolation to the fans A Grade had a tough 24 - 20 win to leapfrog Wynnum into 4th place. They take on Norths next weekend in the Knockout Semi Final.
Colts led 22 - 10 at half time before a dismal second half saw them lose 46 - 22.
Redcliffe still have another hope for Grand Final day in their U16's which are running in 3rd place.
Make sure you get along next week to cheer on the A Grade in their defense of their 2003 Premiership.
