Former Redcliffe Dolphins junior Daniel Jones has helped drive its transition to the national stage in his role as Dolphins NRL board member in 2022.
It’s been a busy period since the Australian Rugby League Commission awarded the club the 17th NRL licence on October 13, 2021, following an intense bid process driven by the board and incoming Dolphins NRL CEO Terry Reader.
Since then, the board has appointed Super Coach Wayne Bennett as Head Coach, signed players to build a club for not just its foundation year but also for the future, and recruited an off-field team to support their success.
Players signed include Felise Kaufusi, Tom Gilbert, Jesse and Kenny Bromwich, Euan Aitken, Anthony Milford, Kodi Nikorima, Ray Stone and Sean O’Sullivan.
They will be joined by a squad of rising stars who will have the chance to develop their game through the club’s pathways program.
The coaching team is also strong with Bennett at the helm and assistant coaches Kristian Woolf and Nathan Fine to back him up.
Jones was appointed to the Dolphins NRL board, following his service to the club for many years which started as a ball boy as a kid. His first job was even at Redcliffe Leagues Club where he collected glasses.
He is the founder and director of Brisbane financial advisory firm Hindsight Wealth and has a Graduate Certificate in Business (Applied Finance) from QUT.
