Uni test for the Coast

tives out of last week,” Wallis said.

“I like the com­po­sure we showed and the guys played with a lot of free­dom with­out be­ing reck­less. One thing we have spo­ken about is play­ing to the guys’ strengths.

“We know this will be a big test but I think we’re pretty well placed.”

If the Dol­phins can top­ple Uni­ver­sity, it would in­ject a huge boost of con­fi­dence to po­ten­tially set up their sea­son. The last time they de­feated Uni­ver­sity, they went on to win the 2009-10 premier­ship.

Queens­land all-rounder Michael Neser will miss the match with a hip in­jury sus­tained in a mid­week Bulls trial.

His place will be taken by Max Houla­han – who only re­turned on Thurs­day from a sea­son with English club En­field – while gun bats­man Nick Stevens will be skip­per.

It is hoped Neser will be fit for Gold Coast’s home fix­ture against Red­lands next week.
