NSW Cup & Jersey Flegg: Round 15 Preview

The Canberra Raiders NSW Cup and Jersey Flegg teams are in great form as they gear up to take on the South Sydney Rabbitohs this Saturday and Sunday afternoon.

Fans are in for action-packed weekend of rugby league, as the NSW Cup kicks off at 2pm on Saturday at Redfern Oval, followed by the Jersey Flegg Cup clash at Raiders Belconnen, Canberra at 2pm on Sunday.


Last week, Canberra claimed a narrow 22-20 victory over the Western Suburbs Magpies at Lidcombe Oval.

A strong second half saw the Raiders score 16 points in the final 40 minutes to help secure the two-point win, including tries from Jed Stuart and the Martin brothers.

The Raiders will be looking to carry over this momentum as they travel to Sydney. 

There are a few changes to the Raiders line-up this week with Trey Mooney returning to the NRL side.

Chevy Stewart and Noah Martin have both been selected for NSW for the under 19’s State of Origin, which will see them also miss Saturday’s clash.

The Rabbitohs will be looking to redeem themselves this weekend, after going down 46-4 to the Bulldogs last Sunday at Accor Stadium.

The Rabbitohs line-up for this week sees a few changes, namely Leonard Skelton who joins the wing in place of Leon Te Hau.

Jersey Flegg Cup

Following a tight 10-8 win against the Wests Tigers last week, the Raiders have held onto their spot at the top of the ladder, securing 10 wins from 13 games.

There are a few changes to the Raiders line-up this week, namely Siamani Leuluai joining on the wing in the place of Atini Tuialii.

Jai Purser will also be join the interchange bench in-place of Mitchell Prest.

The Rabbitohs are fresh off a 38-14 loss to the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at Belmore Sports Ground last Saturday.

There’s no doubt the South’s will be hungry for redemption as they travel to Raiders Belconnen to this weekend.
