Dolphins NRL second-rower Kenny Bromwich says the side are ‘building nicely’ as they prepare for their historic round one clash against the Roosters at Suncorp Stadium.

It will be a fitting tribute to Dolphins’ legend Arthur Beetson.

Bromwich’s comments come as one-game memberships go on sale for that game and the Battle for Brisbane.

“There has been a little bit of talk … and what we’re playing for … Arthur Beetson, it will be a memorial game for him,” he says.

“It was his dream for the Dolphins to play the Roosters, so it’s something that we’re really working hard towards and something we’ll try to play in the right spirit, play hard and play to win.”

Bromwich who followed brother Jesse to the Dolphins says it only took one conversation with Wayne Bennett to convince him the move from Melbourne to Redcliffe was right for him.

The super coach’s vision and plan sealed the deal.

Bennett has pulled together a roster of blue-chip players and rising stars but also those who have not yet reached their potential at other clubs.

Bromwich says the coaching staff, led by Bennett are working the team hard and he’s excited to be part of it.

“I can see the structure of how we’re trying to build this club,” he says.

“I think Jeremy Marshall-King is in for another big year, he had a big year last year. Tommy Gilbert can go another level this year and we’ve got young guys coming through like Katoa – he’s been really impressive.”

Bromwich says Bennett and former coach Craig Bellamy are similar in many ways – they both care about players as people first and foremost.
