Redcliffe maintained their dominant recent form; defeating the ladder leading Norths Devils 44-10 in Round 13 of the FOGS Colts Challenge last Sunday afternoon.

However, the Devils started the game strongly, with winger Lachlan Gallegos scoring in the opening moments of play, capitalising on strong hits produced by the forward pack.

It didn’t take long for the Dolphins to hit back through the fancy footwork of centre Regan Baker in the ninth minute, before fullback Samuel Armstrong broke open the Devils defence in the only two minutes later.

Dolphins prop Bailey Butler muscled his way over for a close range try in the 16th minute, with Regan Butler crossing for his second not long after, after a perfectly weighted kick from hooker Tristan Hope.

Armstrong completed the away sides strong first half, scoring his second try of the afternoon, giving the team a 26-4 lead at the break.

The second half with Redcliffe hooker Tristan Hope capitalising on a gap in the Devils defence to get his first try of the afternoon.

It was a team effort to get halfback Reece Braun over the line, after a fifth-tackle option was left to second rower Jacob O’Shea.

The final blow came when second rower Unngoorra Harbour crossed the line in the 55th minute.

The Devils managed to claim a consolation try in the 62nd minute through five-eighth Bailey Hartwig, before Jack Miers put through a conversion.

“It was a really pleasing performance, we were strong all over the park,” Dolphins coach Scott Murray said.

“Our defence throughout the game was definitely a highlight.

“We have put a lot of time and effort into that side of the game. Our focus as a club is to be the best in the competition in that area.”

Murray, who was pleased with the efforts of the entire team, noted the impact that new players Ungoorra Harbour and Sam Armstrong have had on the team.

“They were outstanding, it was pleasing to see them perform well,” he said.

In this weekend’s Round 14 match-up, the Dolphins will take on the Tweed Head Seagulls at Dolphin Oval on Saturday afternoon, in a 2v3 game.

“It will be another really good indicator of where we are at this time of the year. They beat us last time we met so we know they are a strong team,” Murray said.

“If we keep our routine as much as possible throughout this week, I think we will be able to have a similar performance to last week.

“We are in good shape at the moment with some new players coming in and playing well and some players being rewarded for good performance with elevation to our BRL side over the past month.”

The Devils will face the fourth placed Sunshine Coast Falcons at 1.15pm at Sunshine Coast Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
