Seconds after this photograph was taken the scoreboard attendant clicked a button or two on a laptop or a phone app to show home team leading UTS Bats winning 13.7 (85) to St George 10.21 (81). They hung on for a much-savoured victory.
UTS had a lean season in 2018, so Brad Harricks’ winning set shot from 35 metres was especially sweet.
Brad and Rawson are great mates from their service days in the Royal Australian Navy. Rawson is a gutsy, hard player, who won the UTS Best and Fairest in 2018.
Waverley Oval is in Sydney’s East, near Bondi Beach. The sporting precinct is home to many sports and to the Margaret Whitlam Recreation Centre.
