Dragons fall to Dolphins in Redcliffe

The Dragons suffered their first loss of the year going down to the Dolphins 38-0 at Redcliffe’s Kayo Stadium on Sunday night.

The Dolphins kicked off the scoring five minutes in via Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow who finished off a long-range effort sparked by winger Jack Bostock.

Their second came soon after through Jamayne Isaako who took in a cross-field Kodi Nikorima kick to plant the ball down in the right corner and make it 10-0.

A Ben Hunt 40/20 curtailed the hosts’ early momentum but their defence held firm forcing an error to repel the Dragons raid.

Nikorima left the field for a HIA during the defensive stand – which he failed – before Jeremy Marshall-King joined him in the sheds moments later after a Hunt kick cannoned into the side of his head however, he was able to return in the second half.

Tyrell Sloan injected himself into the contest just shy of the half-hour mark slipping through a gap in the middle of the field and forcing a goal-line dropout with a chip-and-chase.

Michael Molo was denied the Dragons’ first try off a Hunt grubber with the video officials ruling a knock-on in the grounding attempt.

The visitors were again denied by the video officials on the other side of the break after Kyle Flanagan was deemed to have lost the ball in a mid-air contest with Tabuai-Fidow.

Instead, Mark Nicholls crashed over for the hosts to improve their advantage to 16-0.

Jacob Liddle was taken from the field for a HIA in the aftermath but passed the assessment and was able to return.

The Dolphins’ fourth came through Jake Averillo who poured through a hole off an Isaiya Katoa face ball.

Tabuai-Fidow grabbed his second the following set off a Bostock break and kick back on the inside.

Marshall-King nabbed another late one for the Dolphins jumping out from dummy-half and diving over next to the posts.

Tabuai-Fidow secured his hat-trick in the final 10 minutes stepping his way to the line down the left-hand side.

Francis Molo was binned and placed on report for a high shot on Jarrod Wallace in the final stages of the clash.
