There will be no lack of motivation for the Redcliffe Dolphins next year with the club falling just short of a grand final berth in an otherwise outstanding 2017 season.
However, the club has farewelled some vitally experienced players in the off-season, with a number of players expanding on their footballing careers and taking up their opportunity to be involved in an NRL set up are Tyson Gamble (Wests Tigers), Christian Hazard (Newcastle Knights), Matthew Lodge (Brisbane Broncos) and Myles Taueli (Brisbane Broncos).
Coach Adam Mogg will be buoyed however by the arrival of some exciting recruits, including towering winger Obed Karwhin who recently starred in the NRL’s League In Harmony program promotional campaign.
