    Dolphins' too good for Eagles

    Jon Tuxworth | 18th April 2010

    A FAMILIAR face returned to haunt the Sunshine Coast Sea Eagles yesterday in its gallant 30-24 loss to Redcliffe at Dolphin Oval.

    Redcliffe centre Paul Ivan, who has played for the Coast at FOGS Cup level in the past, scored two tries to help extend the Dolphin’s unbeaten start to the season to six matches.

    The Sea Eagles led 12-10 thanks to first half tries to Rob Godfrey and Ben Whiddon.

    They extended that lead to 18-10 when halfback Daly Cherry-Evans, one of the Eagle’s best, scored an individual try under the posts.


    Best: Daly Cherry-Evans

    Ivan scored his first in the 47th minute but a barging run from prop Phil Morwood 10 minutes later restored Sunshine Coast’s eight-point buffer at 24-16.

    However, the Dolphins scored the final three tries of the game to keep their undefeated record intact.

    The Sea Eagles had an opportunity to snatch a deserved draw in the dying seconds when Cherry-Evans gave his side good field position by finding touch from a 20 metre restart, but a grubber kick by the same player for his winger was diffused by the Redcliffe defence.

    Sunshine Coast, the defending Queensland Cup premiers, now have a 2-4 record, but will still be confident of launching a realistic title defence.

    Their first half was very impressive, completing 17 out of 19 sets and their attack looked slicker than in recent weeks.

    “That’s two weeks in a row we haven’t put the back half of the game together, but it’s something we’re working on and I’m sure we’ll get there,” Cherry-Evans said.


    (Paul Ivan 2, David Hala, Tom Butterfield, Mitch Rivett, Chris Fox tries; Liam Georgetown 3 goals)


    (Rob Godfrey, Ben Whiddon, Daly Cherry-Evans, Phil Morwood tries; Dennis Sandow 4 goals)

    It looks like the Sunshine Coast are struggling without Trent H - to me this os good for us as it shows what a quality player he must be to get them to a Grand Final
