Dolphins: Captain’s Call #2

Posted: 4pm 25 Mar 2021

Dolphins captain Cameron Cullen shares his thoughts on the side’s round 1 clash against Mackay as they look to this weekend’s game against Norths Devils. Here's his Captain's Call column ... 

Heading into our round 1 clash with the Mackay Cutters, the preparation was slightly different than normal.

An away trip generally sees us travel the night before the game allowing us to get up there, relax and prepare. However, due to COVID, we had to travel on game day.

Our focus for round 1 was simple − hold on to the footy and compete hard. In what could be a record for the club, we had 13 players make their Dolphins debut with a strong contingent of Warriors joining us.

We made heaps of errors, but showed plenty of resilience and came away with a hard-fought 30-28 win. My pick for man of the match goes to our hooker Manaia Cherrington. He set up two tries, scored a try and was dangerous every time he ran the ball.

In every successful team I have played in, we have always found a way to win ugly and get away with the two points in games that could go either way. We’ve already shown that this year.

We have a lot to work on before our round two game against Norths Devils. They have some quality Broncos dropping back including our very own Tyson Gamble.

With the affiliate club change, he’s been forced to wear a Devils jersey.

For those wanting to tune in, it’s on Sunday at 2pm on Channel 9 and Kayo.
