Redcliffe vs Wynnum at Dolphin Oval

The Wynnum Seagulls will be out to break one of the longer hoodoos going around in the Queensland Cup this Saturday when they clash with Redcliffe at Dolphin Oval in the ABC televised game. The Seagulls last won at Dolphin Oval in first grade on Friday 10th August 1984, some 7547 days ago. Since the Dolphins moved to Dolphin Oval in 1979 it has been an unhappy hunting ground for the Seagulls winning just 3 of the 23 exchanges between the two Clubs. 1979 Redcliffe 23-10, 1980 Redcliffe 29-24, 1981 All 3 games at Lang Park, 1982 Wynnum 20-11, 1983 Redcliffe 32-12, 1984 Wynnum 16-10, 1984 Wynnum 26-14,1985 Redcliffe 20-18, 1986 All matches at Lang Park, 1987 No match at Dolphin Oval, 1988 Redcliffe 18-12, 1989 Redcliffe 16-10, 1990 Redcliffe 22-16, 1991 Redcliffe 42-6, 1992 Redcliffe 19-6, 1993 Redcliffe 36-18, 1994 Redcliffe 24-16, 1995 Redcliffe 48-10, 1996 No game at Dolphin Oval, 1997 No game at Dolphin Oval, 1998 Redcliffe 52-14, 1999 Redcliffe 52-4, 2000 Redcliffe 22-8, 2001 Redcliffe 34-14, 2002 Redcliffe 34-20, 2003 Redcliffe 46-18, 2003 Redcliffe 46-26, 2004 Redcliffe 40-18

Those statistics will count for little as the two sides take the field this Saturday, all hoodoos eventually end but with the Herald Cup on the line it should bring the best out of the two sides. Redcliffe who are struggling to put good halves together will be looking for their first back to back wins for the season whilst the Neil Wharton coached Seagulls fresh after the bye will be looking at joining Burleigh and Easts at the top of the table on 6 points.
