The Emerald Group Redcliffe Dolphins returned to training paddock tonight full of enthusiasm for the challenge ahead. "We have to lift 15% if the other sides lift 10% and they will lift" Strength and Conditioning Coach Tony Guilfoyle said tonight.
"This competition just keeps getting better and better and more and more professional, we have to keep raising the bar or we'll get left behind" he added.
Veteran Dolphins prop Adam Starr said tonight on decision to come out of retirement "I just wasn't ready to retire, I thought I was but I wasn't. I feel really refreshed and I'm super keen to give it a good crack, hopefully it'll be another good year for us". When asked if this definately is his last season the big front rower replied "Yes or my wife will kill me".
The Dolphins start trials February 17 with a clash against the Norths Devils.
