Wayne Bennett speaks out on rumours linking the Dolphins with wonderkid Reece Walsh

Yesterday, the Dolphins were linked with a move for wonderkid Reece Walsh after it was confirmed that the teenager had failed to settle at the New Zealand Warriors.

With Walsh apparently wanting a move back home to Queensland, that set the ball rolling for a potential move to the 17th NRL club, The Dolphins.

However, veteran head coach Wayne Bennett has rubbished those reports.

“I’m very happy with the players we’ve signed, they’re all quality players and quality people with good reputations in the game,” Bennett told the Daily Telegraph.

“We’re talking to players all the time but we’ll just sit back now and let the season start and then we’ll see what happens.

“Every year players get disgruntled at clubs, coaches get disgruntled with players and clubs will overspend and get themselves in salary cap trouble.

“We’ve started by signing some quality, experienced players and then we’ll try and bring some younger players in around them.

“We’re in a good position.”

The Dolphins have so far made seven signings, with Felise Kaufusi, Kenny Bromwich and Jesse Bromwich joining from the Melbourne Storm, Ray Stone from the Parramatta Eels, Jamayne Isaako from the Brisbane Broncos, Mark Nicholls from the South Sydney Rabbitohs and New Zealander Valynce Te Whare.
