WHEN: Friday, February 23 and Saturday, February 24, 2018
WHERE: Dolphin Stadium, cnr Ashmole and Klingner Rds, Redcliffe
THE new stadium at Dolphin Oval, Redcliffe, will get a major workout in late February as the fixture for the 2018 Rugby League Commonwealth Championship.
Over the past two years, the home of the Redcliffe Dolphins has undergone a $12 million facelift that includes an upgraded field and dressing room facilities and the construction of a stadium with seating for 10,000 spectators.
What’s it all about?
The nine-a-side tournament will feature 10 Commonwealth nations. These are Australia, England, Wales, Scotland, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Samoa, Cook Islands and Tonga.
It’s going to be a huge two days where footy fans can enjoy powerhouse performances from eight men’s under 23 teams, six open women’s teams (expect to see star players from the Jillaroos in the lineup) and three teams of players with physical disabilities.
The event is an alluring teaser for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games in April.
The event has been praised by locals who consider the Redcliffe Dolphins Rugby League Club a valued institution with a proud history.
Legend and one of only eight rugby league Immortals (the late) Arthur Beetson cut his teeth on the paddock at Redcliffe and, later in his career, coached the Redcliffe Dolphins.
The club was established in 1947 and last year members celebrated its 70th anniversary.
This year’s event should put an extra layer of icing on the cake.
