Jersey Flegg reach half-century in first win for 2019

The South Sydney Rabbitohs' Jersey Flegg (20s) side have come away with a comprehensive 50-10 victory over the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles in their first win of the season. 

Having come away with two draws to start their year, the Jersey Flegg side came out firing in their round 4 encounter with the Sea Eagles. 

New face Ky Rodwell, who had previously featured for the Canterbury Cup side, was the first to crash over in the seventh minute. Hooker Joshua Cook, who scored a double in his return last weekend, also added to his season tally by going over just six minutes later.

Manly struck back to bring the deficit back to six, but tries to Rodwell and centre Tallis Angianga just before half-time saw the Cardinal and Myrtle up 22-4 at the break.

A flurry of tries came in a fifteen-minute period, with outside backs Kane Allan and Nick Mougios going over to score, as well as Angianga and Cook bagging their doubles.

Their opponents bagged a consolation try, but a Mougios double - the fourth for the day - brought the scores to 50 in a commanding performance, with halfback Blake Taaffe bringing up a personal tally of fourteen points with seven goals to his name.
