Redcliffe Dolphins in Port Moresby for Hunters clash

The Redcliffe Dolphins arrived in Port Moresby yesterday afternoon ahead of their round 9 clash against the PNG Hunters.

The Dolphins are in great form and have won their past five games, including a two-point thriller against Easts Tigers last weekend.

Previously they had been flying under the radar but that victory pushed them up to second spot on the Intrust Super Cup ladder at the expense of the Hunters, who lost their Anzac Day clash against Burleigh in what was a two-point defeat.

Redcliffe Dolphins coach and former Queensland Maroons winger Adam Mogg, when arriving at the Jackson's International Terminal, said: "It was a difficult week of preparations to be honest, we got couple of guys with extra injuries this week so wasn't great but we’ll have a session this afternoon (yesterday) and prepare for tomorrow".

When asked about the injury concerns of his players, Mogg said: "We had injuries during the week where four players couldn't travel and play this game, which is unfortunate. But we still got a good squad so we’ll just focus on what's gonna be a tough game".

Mogg was really excited about the new National Football Stadium saying that "It's gonna be a great game and we are looking forward to playing in the new stadium. We have seen footage of it and it is really a good stadium so hope the local people get out there and support their local team”.
