    Default QCUP Round 23: REDCLIFFE DOLPHINS v BURLEIGH BEARS

    REDCLIFFE DOLPHINS v BURLEIGH BEARS

    Redcliffe Dolphins coach Troy Lindsay has named Alex Bishop to make his Intrust Super Cup debut in this week’s Get in the Game Country Week clash against Burleigh in Longreach. Bishop will become the 11th player from Redcliffe’s 2012 Colts premiership side to play first grade for the club. After a month of strong form in FOGS Cup where he picked up two player of the match awards, the grandson of former Great Britain international Tommy Bishop gets his chance to shine at hooker in the top grade. The change might be just the spark the Dolphins require after eight consecutive losses. Redcliffe boast a dominant recent record over the Bears, who have won only one of the past 13 games between these two sides. This will be Burleigh's 400th Cup game – they have won 224, drawn 18 and lost 157. In that time the Bears have lifted two premiership trophies, and they will look to recapture some of that former glory under Jimmy Lenihan who was last week appointed to coach the Pizzey Park club for the next two years.

    ‘Dobbo’ says: Plenty of fans will be at Longreach to watch this top clash. Both sides won’t feature this year in the finals so it’s all about rebuilding. Could be a trap for the teams – the plane trip might have the feeling of an end of season trip, which spells danger! Both teams will want to win and then enjoy the great town of Longreach. Burleigh Bears by 10.

    Dolphins break drought against Bears

    A STRING of five tries propelled the Redcliffe Dolphins to a 38-16 victory over the Burleigh Bears at the Longreach Showgrounds on Saturday.

    Redcliffe had seven individual try scorers on a day where hooker Alex Bishop made his Intrust Cup debut for the Dolphins in picture-perfect conditions.

    After an early Dolphins try to Brett Coutts, Burleigh responded with the next two scores to Matt Bell and Shaun Maloney, in what was shaping as close contest after the first 20 minutes.

    However, Redcliffe soon took control of the match with tries to co-captain Jon Green, Dalton Phillips and Aaron Whitchurch sending the Dolphins into the break with 22-12 lead.

    The Dolphins’ halves were at their ball-playing best, with Zach Strasser and Cameron Cullen regularly getting their outside players into space against a struggling Burleigh defence.

    First points of the second half went to the Dolphins, when a slicing run and pass from Cullen put Oliver Regan over in the left-hand corner before moments later David Hala crashed in under the posts for the Dolphins’ fifth in a row.

    Steve Michaels broke the drought for Burleigh when he ran through the Dolphins’ defence to score with 13 minutes to fulltime, but it was to be the Dolphins with the final say as Cullen made the Burleigh defence look second-rate, weaving and dummying around players before passing for Strasser to bring up Redcliffe’s seventh try.

    The Bears will look to rebound next Saturday when they host Souths Logan at Pizzey Park, while the Dolphins travel to Browne Park to take on the CQ Capras also on Saturday.
