The Redcliffe Dolphins will play the Blackhawks this Saturday at 3:00 pm at Burdekin Rugby League Park in Ayr. Young half Cody Hunter has recently signed a deal with the Dolphins and is now officially a member of the NRL squad. His impressive performances during 2002 have earned him a contract with the Dolphins. Here are a few facts about the young half. We hope you enjoy this article!
The introduction of a new team in the heartland of rugby league has drawn some criticism from the NRL, but this criticism fails to take into account the benefits of the franchise. The Dolphins’ plans to partner with two or three Queensland Cup clubs will help to broaden the game beyond Brisbane. The Dolphins also plan to participate in other regional competitions in Queensland, which is a good move for the franchise. The NRL is taking the right steps to expand its footprint.
A new stadium is a necessary part of the plan for the Dolphins. A brand new stadium and a rebranding will make this possible. Despite being located in the north of the city, the new team will be based on the Sunshine Coast, so support will be strong. However, the club will have a new logo to go with the name. It is not clear how long it will take before the club has a new logo.
The Redcliffe Dolphins began playing in the Brisbane Rugby League 19 seasons earlier and won their only premiership in 1978. They were the most remote club in the BRL at the time and were granted a garbage fill to play on. They just wanted a place to play and a home. Fortunately, the club’s history hasn’t stopped them from accomplishing this goal. It is on its way to becoming an internationally recognized sporting brand.
The Redcliffe Dolphins have been around since 1967. A change in name would make it easier for the public to recognize them. It would also better reflect the growing council area and the large body of water off Brisbane. While the Redcliffe Dolphins are a community-based team, it is still a proud state league powerhouse. The club has long dreamed of playing in the NRL. This is their chance to get back to their roots and play in the top tier of the game.
The Redcliffe Dolphins, based in southern Queensland, won their bid for the 17th NRL licence. The team will compete alongside the Brisbane Broncos and will be the fourth club in Queensland. They will be the first team from the region since the Gold Coast Titans joined the NRL in 2007.
The new owners, the Vylands brothers, have revealed their expansion plans and a $50 million surplus. While the club has been announcing expansion plans to the NRL, they’re unlikely to have an immediate effect on the competition. It’s possible the Dolphins could target superstars in the NRL in the upcoming season. In fact, if they can’t sign Cody Walker, they could be prepared to re-name the team Redcliffe Dolphins.
The new team’s name might be a tough sell in the market. It’s worth considering that News Ltd owns the Broncos. While the news coverage of the club has been generally positive, it could also hurt the Dolphins’ chances of attracting a large fanbase. Although the team may be able to attract more casual fans, most rugby league fans in Brisbane already have a favourite team. The addition of another NRL team would only attract casual fans.
The new name has some perks. Redcliffe is a historic Queensland rugby league franchise. It’s located in the north of Brisbane and the corridor leading up to the Sunshine Coast. Redcliffe is considered to be one of Australia’s fastest-growing local government areas. However, the new team will not be named Redcliffe because it intends to serve the northern suburbs of Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. It’s still too early to tell if Redcliffe Dolphins will be a good fit for Brisbane.
A clever entrepreneur filed trademarks for the name before either team even tried to use it. Before either team even entered the NRL, this clever businessman anticipated the need for trademark ownership and filed their application before the teams even joined the league. For only $287, the businessman is now set to reap the rewards from this move. Aside from the trademark, the broader protection provided by class 41 and 25 is worth noting.
