RUGBY UNION: It's the depth in Noosa's ranks which has propelled the club's top side to 30 straight wins and another minor premiership, according to the its A-grade manager Tony Harmer.

The Dolphins continued its merry ways on Saturday, with a 24-15 triumph over Caloundra at Lighthouse Park.

The team sealed the regular season mantle in the Sunshine Coast's four-team competition through 12 of 15 rounds and is now within sight of defending its title.

The team's got its stars - with a selection of players featuring in representative teams - but much of its success is due to its reserves.

"We used our whole bench on Saturday and we didn't miss a beat," Harmer said.

"The line-out stayed good and everything. That's what's already made Noosa strong, the depth. Everyone around the club will tell you that."

Among those to step up is Joshua Munro, the son of Colin 'Digger' Munro, who played in Noosa's inaugural team in 1985.

"His dad was a very uncompromising forward and he is a skinny, little back. He's a good player," Harmer said.

"He can come off the bench and play fullback, five-eighth, half-back. He can play all over the place for us."

In the other match, Maroochydore beat University of the Sunshine Coast 20-18 at Cotton Tree to regain third place in the battle between the teams for a top-three finals berth.

LADDER: Noosa 57, Caloundra 36, Maroochydore 14, USC 13.
