Rabbitohs under 21s player Tallis Angianga has been judged by his teammates as the season’s best player, taking out the Jersey Flegg Players’ Player award at the George Piggins Medal Presentation on the Gold Coast this afternoon.
Angianga, who is in his third season with the South Sydney Rabbitohs in 2021, played seven of his 32 games this year.
