Rabbitohs half Blake Taaffe has been awarded the Jersey Flegg Player of the Year for 2019, leading the side to the Club’s first Jersey Flegg title since 1978.

Taaffe was a standout for the premiership-winning Flegg team all year, saving his best performance for the big dance after slicing through for two tries and kicking two goals. He was awarded the man-of-the-match honours for his efforts.

A La Perouse junior, the halfback also played in the Canterbury Cup which according to 2019 Jersey Flegg Head Coach, Ben Rogers, “took his [Taaffe’s] game to the next level.”

In his 16 appearances in the Jersey Flegg, Taaffe scored five tries and kicked 60 goals for a total of 150 points. He also provided eight try assists and 15 line break assists.

Rabbitohs’ General Manager of Football, Shane Richardson, was there to present the award.

The South Sydney Rabbitohs would like to congratulate Blake on his tremendous season.
