DOLPHIN TRIVIA: Name four players who have won a Colts Grand Final for Redcliffe and have played Qld Cup for Easts?
A powerhouse performance by forwards Troy Lindsay, Adam Starr and Nick Walker saw the Dolphins Premier Grade side return to the winners circle to the tune of 54-4 in Rockhampton last Saturday night. After the previous week?s disappointment against Ipswich, to a man the side approached the Comets with a high level of intensity and a return to some early season form was the reward. Today?s challenge against Easts who will be out to avenge last weekends loss to Ipswich presents the Phins with a great opportunity to stake our title claims and you can be confident a high intensity contest will unfold this afternoon. A sideline to the game will be the match up of 2 former internationals in Brian Jellick and Steve Renouf which only serves to highlight the calibre of game we can expect. Last weeks SEARLES GARDEN PRODUCTS Player of the Match was Troy ?Cowboy? Lindsay and the KEYSTAR MOTORS Players Player Nick ?Texas? Walker.
100 points to 2, this was the deficit posted against the Runaway Bay side by the Redcliffe A Grade outfit last weekend in what would be a worrying trend for the Gold Coast Club. It?s hard to make any sort of judgement on the performance of the side in a game like this other than to say you can only play whats in front of you and the side obviously applied themselves to the task by posting a century and conceding no tries. Birthday boys Wayne Bond and Travis Falls celebrated in style with outstanding displays with the now 18 year old Bond awarded the HOGS BREATH CAFE Man of the Match. Competition front-runners Easts are the next hurdle and the Tigers are sure to provide a good gauge to the Dolphins on how the side is progressing
The Colts returned to the winners circle after an 86-12 victory over Runaway Bay in their last outing. Second placed Easts await the side today for the first of 3 challenging games to complete the season and the youngsters will need to apply themselves to finish the year on the best possible note. Steve Tyler had a return to form last weekend and was awarded the LEADING EDGE SPORTS Man of the Match.
Next weekend sees the Burleigh Bears travel to Dolphin Oval on Saturday in all 3 grades with the Qld Cup match allocated the ABC TV game of the round. It would be great to see a big vocal crowd on hand to support the sides and any supporters of the Dolphins who have next Saturday spare could do a lot worse than getting themselves down to Dolphin Oval and witnessing 3 good games of footy. Every bit of support makes a difference and rest assured the players are very much appreciative of it.
ANSWER: Dane Campbell, Jamie Tomlinson, Leigh Coghill and Robbie Maller
