Captain’s Call: Cameron Cullen

Posted: 11am 20 May 2021

Another two-point thriller! We managed to secure another close win on the weekend against the Tigers moving us into seventh (tie fourth) on the ladder.

I thought we took a real step forward, as a team, the previous week against Townsville and we had a big focus on improving that performance and building as a team.

New Zealand Warriors halfback Sean O’Sullivan has made a real difference to our attack with his talk and kicking game.

With the new rule coming in, we knew we were bound to get someone sent to the sin bin and sure enough it happened. We were down to 12 men for 10 minutes defending our line.

Not only did we hold them out, but we managed to score a try going into half-time 8-6 down. We were first to score in the second half and also slotted a two-point penalty conversion taking it to 14-8.

The Tigers were never giving up and scored a try with seven minutes to go, but missed the kick taking it to 14-12. A real feature of our team this year has been the ability to keep turning up for each other and that certainly happened on the weekend.

Our goal line defence was much-improved and our attack is getting better every week.

A well-earned week off this week will give us the chance to rest up and come into the game against PNG at home ready to go.

We have some notable players returning in the coming weeks. Jayden Nikorima, Trai Fuller, and Nathan Watts will all be available for selection in the coming weeks strengthening the depth in our squad.

There is always a strong contingent of PNG fans that come to Moreton Daily Stadium, so I’m calling on all Dolphins fans to get down to the game and support us.

It’s another huge game for us to keep pushing into the top four on the ladder.

Be there: Saturday, May 29 at 6pm.
