BY DANIEL WHITE
The Best game this weekend sees the undefeated Blackhawks head down to one of their toughest opponents in the Dolphins. The Dolphins will be looking to bounce back after underestimating the Tigers last weekend and know they are facing a red hot Townsville side on Saturday night.
Who to look out for:
For the visitors, Carlin Anderson was responsible for 28 points after a perfect game with the boot and two tries. The former Jet has settled in nicely and will be the focus for the Dolphins if they want to keep the score in check. Between himself and Jonno Reuben, the left-hand corner post may get a workout.
For Redcliffe, they will also look to continue to attack down the left-side of the field. Their points were from the efforts of Ahearn and Pearson, with Jonus Pearson running in their two tries. Jack Ahearn will need to lift his game if the Dolphins are to challenge the Blackhawks, and he is a player who does like a big game.
How they will win:
The Dolphins will need to put in an across the park effort against the Blackhawks. They may be lucky and get the Blackhawks in an over confident mood, but you can never play for how your opponent may feel. The Backline will have to muscle p and put in their fair share of effort if they are to come away with the points.
The Blackhawks will need to ensure that they start this game like they lost last weekend. Confidence is a good thing, but against a side like the Dolphins, it can leave you exposed to a fast start. If the Blackhawks play their standard game, they should be able to take care of the Dolphins.
Blackhawks to work hard but to leave Dolphin oval with the 2 points. Townsville by 6+.
