Tim Tops Class

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.

Squad Stands Out

TEENAGE winger Tim Yee has given the Redcliffe Dolphins Development Squad another burst of credibility. It's not that the 16-year-old format needs much introduction to rugby league fans after producing a string of State of Origin and Australian players over the years. In one year alone, squad graduates Petero Civoniceva, Brent Tate, Michael Crocker and Dane Carlaw turned out for the Maroons as well as donning national jerseys. A dig through match reports revealed that development squad members who played first grade at the same time include Brent Tate (1999), Trent Clayton (1998), Petero Civoniceva (1994), Charles Vis (2003) and Val Fa'amoe (2003) so Yee is in illustrious company. Squad co-ordinator Brian O'Brien has been there since day one and rates this year's squad as talented as any the club has boasted. "This is a pretty talented squad and I would not be surprised if quite a few don't go on to attain the very highest honours," he said. "This squad is equal to the best we've had." Electrifying winger Yee, a second year squad member, is only 17 and already has notched a handful of Queensland Cup appearances for the Dolphins as well as a players' player of the match award. Red-haired centre Ben Jones, another squad member, has caught the eye of the Sydney Roosters with the club flying the 16-year-old to Sydney for the statewide Jersey Flegg competition. "Ben has impressed the Roosters as he was man of the match twice in four weeks," O'Brien said. "I would not be surprised if the Roosters signed Ben as they have a high opinion of him. "Ben not only made the Queensland Schoolboys side but also the state under 17s side with David Hala and Joel Romelo with the trio playing the curtain-raiser to Origin II. "We ask our squad members to sign a BRL contract, but under no circumstances would we prevent a players from moving on to a higher level in the code." This season's 20-strong development squad, made up of teens aged from 16 to 18 and sponsored for the second year by Classic Sportswear, undergoes skills training once a month as well as dinner every two months to which selected speakers are invited. Topics can include financial advice, diet and public speaking. The squad is divided into three teams which compete against each other for an end-of-season trophy. Junior development officer Grant Cleal takes the on-field training sessions with help from Dolphins premiership players Barry Denduck and Ian Graham and junior coach Steve Peoples. The squad plays two matches against the equivalent Burleigh Bears squad as well as fielding a side in the annual country invitation trial at Dolphin Oval. In another boost for the squad, Southern Cross student Hala has been named in the Australian Schoolboys side to tour Great Britain at the end of this season. A 2005 squad member, Redcliffe High's Luke Capewell, also made the touring party.

Coaches Corner with Anthony Griffin

THE jockeying is on this month by quite a few sides for a top three place in the Queensland Cup. The Emerald Group Dolphins are right in the mix and thankfully we have our destiny in our own hands. Naturally our preference would be to nail down a one, two or three spot to give us more opportunities to advance in the finals series. Our victory over the Toowoomba Clydesdales late last month certainly advanced our cause, but we do have the bye in the final round, which we do not gain any points for. Our upcoming matches are against Souths Logan (Dolphin Oval), North Queensland (Townsville) and Tweed Seagulls (Redcliffe). Obviously the NQ Young Guns fixture shapes as a crunch showdown with the home side in great form and constantly near the top of the ladder. Our run in is no worse or better than the other contenders and I'm confident that if we play to our potential and injuries stay away we will give a good account of ourselves.

Wigan fined, deducted two points

AT a meeting of the RFL independent judiciary panel, the Wigan Warriors club has been found guilty of breaching the 2005 Super League Salary Cap.The panel found that the Wigan club had a Salary Cap of between 52 and 55 per cent (of relevant club income) at the end of 2005 and therefore, in accordance with the RFL?s Operational Rules (which set a limit on spending of no more than 50% of relevant club income), has suffered a penalty of the deduction of two competition points.The panel also found that in the course of the breach, the Wigan club was guilty of conduct prejudicial to the interests of the game. They have been fined ?50,000 plus costs in respect of this.The Wigan club pleaded guilty to both charges in the course of the hearing.Both penalties take immediate effect and thus the deduction of competition points applies to the current 2006 engage Super League competition table.An officially revised table will be published in due course. A date for the hearing regarding Bradford's case is yet to be disclosed.Source: www.therfl.co.uk

Alleged salary cap breaches...

Rammo's rant

AT this time last season, with four rounds remaining, I remember thinking to myself that while the Dragons and Parramatta were the two dominant forces of the NRL, other sides like the Wests Tigers and North Queensland could scamper through the pack and take the title.

Nederland 34 def. Czech 28

EUROPEAN FEDERATION DEVELOPMENT INTERNATIONALNEDERLAND TASMAN 34 CZECH REPUBLIC 28A superb try saving tackle by outstanding Dutch full back Rudy Stanford-Smyth prevented the Czech Republic from a possible share of the spoils on their first foray onto foreign soil.There were huge positives for both nations in a terrific, flowing encounter; the Dutch fielding a predominantly home-based side showing great resolve to secure victory while the European newcomers proved that they have the talent to be competitive.Holland made a great start, racing to a 14-0 lead in the opening quarter hour as the Czech?s failed to complete their sets of six giving good field position to the men in Orange. Nottingham Outlaws? Phil Parkinson opened the scoring, with the excellent Stanford-Smyth crossing twice in three minutes as he linked decisively from the back.The visitors, initially suffering from the after-effects of a 1000km bus journey, began to find their feet, with stand off Mikhal Kucera at the heart of their best work.Prop P?emek Br?dle skittled the defence to power his way over and strong running second rower Josef Kucera posted the first of his three tries to reduce the gap to four points.On the stroke of half time, experienced Dutch scrum half Jorik Moree skipped clear and away for a fine solo try, Aaron de Jager?s second conversion making it 20-10 at the break.Within ten minutes of the re-start the Dutch had doubled their advantage, confidently spreading the ball wide to create touchdowns for wingmen Cameron Stewart and Jamie Groeneweg.Mikhal and Josef Kucera replied, with Mikhal converting both efforts to bring the score to 30-22, only for Moree to produce another expertly timed dart on the 70th minute for the hosts.Josef Kucera deservedly completed his try treble to set up a tense finish, Standford-Smyth securing victory with his heroic late tackle.European Rugby League Development Officer Kevin Rudd, who oversaw the clash, commented; ?I would like to pay tribute to the Czech squad who conducted themselves superbly on and off the field and made great efforts to play the match. Their sporting spirit was admirable and they are a welcome addition to the growing European Rugby League family.?Czech General Secretary Milan Mrtynek added, ?That was a great learning experience for us and all the guys enjoyed the game. We look forward to more Rugby League and welcoming more teams to Prague to give us further experience.?Netherlands RL President Ian Thompson was equally enthusiastic, ?It was a fantastic display of open rugby with great flair and attacking play from both sides. With ninety per cent of our squad from Holland, that was a great development for us? he said.Source: www.rlef.eu.com
