Returning Falcons happy to help out Dolphins

RUGBY LEAGUE: With his side looking to make it four wins on the trot against Caboolture tomorrow, dual premiership-winning coach Rob Brough says he has been humbled by the attitude of Sunshine Coast Falcons returning to his club.

Unlike other local teams, the Dolphins have been granted only the Falcons they have "produced" themselves, but that has not stopped the side from claiming second place on the ladder after three straight victories.

The fringe Falcons players have returned to the local competition with level heads and contributed greatly to the recent form of Brough's side.

"I have been very happy with the way the Kawana boys have come back from the (Intrust Super) Cup and bought into playing for their club side again," Brough said.

"Sam Wright, Mitch Ebdon, Phil Taylor, Beau Walker came back to us, so it is nice that all these guys that came through Kawana are coming back to play good footy with their club.

"Matt Gilliman has been exceptional as well.

"We certainly embrace them coming back and their attitude has been tremendous even though I know they all love playing at another level."

The Dolphins are in the midst of a rebuilding phase after losing a substantial part of their squad in the past 12 months, including former captain Paul Cohen (retired) and representative back-rower Jason Wardrop (Maroochydore).

They may be a young squad, but the inexperienced Dolphins are showing enough to suggest that if they continue to mature in the coming rounds they should be able to trouble the top sides at the business end of the season.

Not that Brough wants to entertain that train of thought just yet.

"We have a lot of rebuilding to do," he said.

"A lot of players have left and there are a lot of young fellows here trying to find their way and we have been lucky in the past few weeks.

"We are just trying to get some consistency in the place."

They have found that in beating Caloundra, the Northern Outlaws and Nambour.

However, Brough is well aware of the threat Caboolture poses, the master coach rating the Snakes on par with ladder-leader Maroochydore.

"We are under no illusions that Caboolture are going to be very strong and they have some very talented boys playing there," he said.

Kawana will be without Travis Long, who has been elevated to the Falcons to play Easts this weekend.
