The Dolphins will officially join the NRL from 2023 after it was handed the league’s 17th license yesterday. If the name seems vague, that’s because the Brissie-based team has controversially dropped ‘Redcliffe’ from their name, and they will consult with fans on something new. And if that’s not exciting enough, legendary coach/famous grump Wayne Bennett has signed a 3-year contract with the team. That’s a big deal because he’ll help attract good players and sponsors. And with rep players like Cameron Munster, Brandon Smith and Cody Walker not having a contract inked post-2022, they will be in Bennett’s sights. The Dolphins is the first team to be added to the comp in 14 years.
