Captain's Call with Cameron Cullen

Captain's Call with Cameron Cullen

XXXX rivalry round saw us take on arch rivals Wynnum Manly Seagulls in the battle of the bay! There was a lot spoken about in the lead-up to this game to ensure everyone knew about the rivalry between the two clubs. 

To add to the emotion of it all it was the one year anniversary of the passing of the Wynnum skipper and all-round great bloke Mitch Cronin. The game was at Kougari Oval, Wynnum’s home ground, and it was the first time they had played there in more than 18 months. 

The stage was set for a cracker of game and it certainly delivered. 

We got off to a very slow start with some lapses in defence and found ourselves down 16-0 after 20 minutes. 

We showed a lot of resilience to fight back before the break. An intercept after halftime allowed Wynnum to slip away again however shortly after Josh Beehag got us back with an intercept of his own and a huge solo effort to score. 

At 28-28, with two minutes to go, Wynnum split the line and scored to seal the game. 

Reece Walsh made his Dolphins debut and showed he’s destined for the NRL. Trai Fuller was at his scintillating best and Dolphins veteran Jeremy Hawkins carried the ball strongly every touch. 

We look forward to another improved performance at home on Saturday. It’s the long weekend, so make sure you come along and cheer us on.

Cameron Cullen is captain of the Dolphins' Intrust Super Cup rugby league team. Cullen is an experienced five-eighth, halfback and hooker, having previously played in the NRL and with the Dolphins in their 2018 Premiership winning season.
