Captains' Call: Cameron Cullen on Dolphins' win against Capras

Back-to-back away trips took us up to Rockhampton to take on the Capras.

With a few former Dolphins players in their team, we knew they would turn up to play.

Poor discipline and sloppy defence saw Capras open the scoring and get off to a good start.

Resilience has been a real feature of our season this year and again we hung in there and hit back straight away.

We went into half time up 18-6 but we were pretty disappointed in how we were playing.

We made a few adjustments and came out and took a 30-6 lead which we should of ran away with.

However we finished the half in a less than desirable fashion and Capras staged a comeback, falling just short at 30-24.

We now sit in tied second position and in a really good spot to secure a home semi-final.

With five weeks of the regular season to go, we still have a heap of improvement in our team which is exciting.

Next Sunday we play Mackay in a home game (venue to be confirmed). For details closer to the day, follow the Dolphins on Facebook.
