Round 15 2023, was a fixture every Dolphins fan would rather forget. Manly turned the screws and would go onto flog the Dolphins 58-18 in a horrific night for the rookie franchise. One year later and despite a horrific injury toll, the Dolphins find themselves sitting above the Sea Eagles in 4th place. This week they welcome back Herbie Farnworth and Kenny Bromwich in a timely boost against a Sea Eagles outfit that could best be described as complacent.

Trai Fuller has continued to impress in the absence of Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow. The reigning Petero Civoniceiva medalist has proven a revelation in both attack and defence and has complimented the agile spine the Dolphins like to play with. Fuller is playing for an extended stay at fullback and with Origin fast approaching, Fuller could stay in the team at fullback (with Hamiso shifting to the centres) or possibly as a bench option. Regardless his stint has been one of the stories of 2024 and he'll be looking to write a new chapter on Thursday.

If the Dolphins win it will give them a healthy 6-3 record and will give themselves every opportunity to improve on last year's capitulation. A loss would be a reality check and another instance of an ebb and flow that has seemingly defined the Dolphins season so far in 2024. Right when you think the Dolphins could go on a run, they produce a sub-par performance that puts everybody on notice.


Great game, those few tries before haltime really nailed the Sea Eagles, great win and the goat scoring free and clear would make even the great dane smile.... Wayne also
