TEEN Tim Yee has experienced a meteoric rise to fame. The 18-year-old, a member of Redcliffe's Development Squad, was in the Dolphins Colts side until called up by Anthony Griffin for the Queensland Cup. Injuries to outside backs Greg Bourke and Ryan Cullen and Nick Emmett's elevation to the Broncos meant a spot for Yee. "My first match was from the bench and I played stints at hooker and five-eighth," Yee said. "The next match was the TV one against Burleigh Bears when our rep players were away for the match against Country. "I played wing then and won the players' player award and have been there since. It's an awesome experience playing in the top team and everyone gives you confidence." A Redcliffe junior since under sevens, Yee dabbled in martial arts as a youngster but league has always had his attention. "The most noticeable difference from playing Colts to first grade is the speed of the game," he said. "It moves along so quickly and everyone knows what to do." The 88-kilogram Yee played centre and five-eighth in Colts this season after breaking into that squad late last season. He has settled into the winger's role, however five-eighth and centre still remain his favourite positions.Like
