Match: Dolphins v Jets
Round 10 -
Venue: Moreton Daily Stadium, Redcliffe
The Jets remain winless in season 2022, as the Dolphins piled on seven second-half tries to jump into the top eight on the Hostplus Cup ladder.
The Dolphins scored an astonishing six tries in the first 18 minutes of the second half, with fullback Trai Fuller scoring a hat-trick in the first six minutes of the half.
Hooker Sheldon Pitama also crossed for three tries, while Dolphins NRL recruit Valynce Te Whare scored a double on his Hostplus Cup debut.
The first half was a relatively tight affair with the half-time scoreline being 12-0.
The Dolphins scored with their opening set of the half, but then didn't cross until the 34th minute, as the Jets held their own in the opening 40 minutes.
The second half however was a completely different story. Dolphins coach Scott Murray's half time message had the desired effect as his side scored in their first three second-half sets through Fuller on each occasion to put the game out of the Ipswich's reach.
The Dolphins went on to record a further three second-half tries through Te Whare, Pitama, and Warrior Eliesa Katoa.
Daejarn Asi was perfect with the boot with nine from nine conversions.
The Jets struggled to gain possession in the second half particularly, with the Dolphins scoring six tries in their first eight sets of the half to run away with the game.
Next week, the Dolphins will travel to Mackay next week to play the Cutters.
