Wests Tigers’ Jersey Flegg outfit went down to South Sydney, 24-20 at Ironmark High Performance Centre, despite an impressive recent run of form from the away side.
Much like our NSW Cup side, the U/21's also had a number of players gaining invaluable experience playing up a grade.
Match: Rabbitohs v Wests Tigers
Round 13 -
Venue: Ironmark High Performance Centre, Sydney
Skipper Kade Hill scored his second try in as many weeks in the defeat, while hooker Michael Tannous crossed for his third try in his last two starts.
With a number of key players making their returns from injury in recent weeks and combinations still growing, this side looks sure to improve as the season progresses.
“It was Brandon Tumeth’s second game back, he played a lot more minutes this week and he’s definitely progressing in the right direction”, explained Coach Scott Kenna.
“He’s very aggressive with his defence and line-running, so he’s going well”.
“Kade Hill too has been back for about six weeks now and he’s doing a great job as our leader and conductor.”
Another junior star who has impressed Kenna greatly in 2022 after a stint in basketball, has been outside back Jahream Bula.
The Queensland recruit has played fullback in recent times, with Kenna gushing over the athletically gifted star's form.
He’s really our spark and point of difference at the back”. He’s been ticking off some really good goals too; scoring some nice tries and running for around 100+ metres per game. I honestly don’t know if he’ll be in Flegg for much longer”.Coach Scott Kenna
