‘‘The Rabbitohs SG Ball Cup side will be rueing a 22 all draw with Manly, after leading 22-4 with just 15 minutes left in the match. With both sides come off a last start win, it was always going to be a tight contest. Isaiah Vailalo showcased plenty of power up front, while Tallis Duncan demonstrated true grit and stamina, playing the entire game at lock with no rest. Josiah Karapani helped the side roll forward numerous times throughout the match, with his carries out of the back end proving to be nothing short of sensational.’’
Good to see new ‘‘hit man’’ Tallis Duncan getting stuck into them

Hey Dip
The Jersey Flegg games are being live streamed too right?

Keep a eye on Ryan Jones in the Flegg . The rorters were not to happy we signed him at the end of 2019 .

What position does he play?

I don’t know. I doubt it because they are trials. :crossed_fingers: :crossed_fingers:

This one might be because it is a full day of games at Leichhardt Oval.
