It was a celebratory atmosphere at University Oval Number 1, with Sydney University stalwart Tom Carter running on for his 200th match for the club, a record made even more extraordinary given that 175 of those matches were played in the first grade side.

The final match of the regular season was also a farewell to the home ground of the Students, with the birthplace of rugby set for redevelopment. The Students didn’t disappoint the strong home crowd, with a dominant 52-12 win over the Shoremen.

An intercept try to Northern Suburbs’ winger Lochie Creagh in the first five minutes of the match exhibited the danger that the home side would face against a Norths side intent on spoiling the party in their final match of the regular season, with an easy conversion from Mitch Walton to give the Shoremen an early seven point lead.

Sydney University looked determined however, dominating much of the possession in the following minutes and were rewarded for their follow up efforts with a try to halfback Richard Draper in the fourteenth minute, and a conversion to Angus Roberts levelling the scores.

Tom Kingston was next to cross the line in the sixteenth minute, and Roberts again neatly slotted the conversion to stretch their lead to seven points after 17 minutes.

Milestone man Tom Carter followed up two minutes later with a try of his own; set up by newly signed Waratah Jim Stewart, a fitting celebration for the final match at the ground at which he began his career.

Valiant defence from Norths wasn’t enough to prevent the flow of tries from the home side, with Matthew Narracott scoring for University, assisted by Tom Kingston.

Tom Carter continued his success with another try in the 27th minute, and taking out a club record of 90 career tries.

Norths were at a scoring advantage with ten minutes to play, but scrambling defence and well executed kick from the boot of Tom Kingston saw their efforts thwarted. University continued to trouble the scoreboard with captain David Hickey crossing the line with just two minutes left the play in the first half. Angus Roberts converted to take the score to 38-7 at half time.

Within the first minute of the second half, former Waratah and current Rebel, Tom Kingston showed his class with a spectacular run up the sideline, setting the tone of what was likely to come for the Students.

But Norths weren’t giving up hope, despite the deficit on the scoreboard, and hooker Sam Kitchen was first to register points in the second half, taking his side to double figures with the score at 38-12.

Uni were looking to add to their score, but Norths showed exceptional determination to prevent them from getting through despite numerous attempts. University showed their class on the third attempt and Waratahs captain Dave Dennis crossed under the post to take the score to 43-12 in the 43rd minute.

Waratahs teammates Pat McCutcheon and Tolu Latu paired up to score a try that was deemed held up, but the subsequent scrums failed to reward their efforts.

Norths made a last ditch effort to add to their total, but it was classy Uni centre Jim Stewart who crossed in the corner to score the final try of the match with just three minutes left on the clock, with the conversion from Roberts taking the final score to 52-12 in favour of the dominant home side.
