The Village Motors Dolphins are expecting try scoring machine Trai Fuller to again be an attacking force in the Intrust Super Cup next season. Having just put pen to paper, the Club is happy to have staved off rival clubs for his signature.
Fuller debuted for the Dolphins off the bench in Round 4 before being handed the number one jersey full-time in Round 20, a month out from the finals. The move by Coach Adam Mogg paid off, with the young gun going over the line six times in the next five games.
Mogg praised the 20 year old’s adjustment to first grade. “Trai got a little taste of Intrust Super Cup early in the year when he came off the bench at hooker a couple of times. He went really well considering he was playing out of his usual position at fullback. It was his form in the last 6 weeks of the season that really got people taking notice,” Mogg said.
The Intrust Super Cup Grand Final was Fuller’s second Premiership in the red and white, having been part of the winning Colts side in 2017. He went over twice for the Dolphins at Suncorp this year, helping secure a 36-22 victory over the Easts Tigers. “You could say Fuller won the battle of the fullbacks on Grand Final day, with a classy Scott Drinkwater also in a point scoring mood for the Tigers. Drinkwater had a great year and was picked in the QRL’s Team of the Year but Trai was every bit as dangerous at Suncorp,” Mogg added.
