Cup win to Dolphins

 

Redcliffe Dolphins Rugby League Football Club - Rd 13 vs Norths - Lang Park Presidents Cup  

Redcliffe has won its first major trophy in ten years when Redcliffe won it's only premiership.

 

The Dolphins had a magnificent 26-24 win in the final over Norths, which is played between the leaders of the first round completed way back on May 10.

 

It was a thriller all the way in the second session when the crowd was continually on their feet as the Devils would get within a point or two before Redcliffe would kick away again to just keep that long Dolphin nose in front.

 

Coach Barry Muir might be smiling right now but he wasn't during the second half of Sunday's match.

 

Because Redcliffe had Norths on toast at halftime 16-4 and let them off the hook.

 

Norths fought right back into the match in that second session, closing with Redcliffe 14-16, 19-21 and the final score 24-26.

 

That's not real good football by Redcliffe you might think.

 

How about looking at it another way - that it's real good football by Norths.

 

It sure was. Norths comeback in that second session was as good as you would see and you don't have to look too far to see where the fight back started and on what it was founded.

 

Look at the scrums Norths hooker Nick Gieger on the second half scrums 9-3 and set the ball rolling for the Norths comeback.

 

How is that for a youngster who wants to  be playing in Sydney next year?

 

Both teams scored four tries and six goals and ironically the winning margin of two points came from two field goals by Steve Williams in what seemed like a waste of the ball at the time.

 

Shortly before half-time with Redcliffe leading 14-4 Williams dropped field goals within three minutes to make the half-time lead Redcliffe 16-4.

 

You would reckon field goals at that time were less than worthless with a lead of 10 points and half a game to go.

 

Not on your life, and if Williams was cursed for kicking them at half time he was kissed for those two points after the match.
