Rabbitohs Jersey Flegg complete third win on the trot with comprehensive victory over Raiders

The South Sydney Rabbitohs Jersey Flegg side have kept in touch with the top four after a comprehensive 28-12 victory over the Canberra Raiders at Crestwood Oval in their Round 15 clash. 

The change in venue coinciding with the return of halfback and captain Blake Taaffe and hooker Josh Cook, two of the mainstays of the side, with the former having played Canterbury Cup in recent weeks with the latter overcoming injury. 

But it would be Tallis Angianga - deputising in the front row as opposed to his preferred centre position - who would star early with an early double to give the side a ten-nil lead midway through the first half. 

The Raiders would respond with a try of their own ten minutes before the break to close the gap to four points, but the Rabbitohs would regain the ascendency through bench forward Lachlan Gale to see the scores at 16-6 at the break.

The scores would remain for the opening ten minutes of the first half, but again it was the Red and Green who drew first blood with winger Jack Frasca going over, with Taaffe's conversion giving the side a handy 22-6 lead after 50 minutes.

And the Cardinal and Myrtle would seal their third win on the trot with a try to Jaxson Paulo a further ten minutes later, with the young centre's putdown extending the lead to twenty.

While the Raiders managed to score a consolation try of their own in the final minutes, it was the Rabbitohs who took home the points at their home away from home in Baulkham Hills.
