Or, as we're learning to call it, Hobson Monday.  Steve Hobson's 109 against Sydney on Saturday:

  • was his 11th century for the club, but his first in First Grade;
  • made him (at 39 years and 296 days) the oldest player to score a First Grade century for Sydney University, passing Greg Mail, who was 38 years and 269 days old when he hit 06 not out against Blacktown last season;
  • was his third century in successive matches (but not successive innings).  This has only been achieved once before in the club's history, by Test batsman Johnny Taylor, in 1923-24; and
  • made him the first batsman in Sydney to pass 500 runs in Grades 1 to 5 this season, even though he was unavailable for Round 5. 

Tim Cummins improved his highest First Grade score for the club for the second time in eight days, hitting 73 not out against Sydney.  It was his eleventh half-century in First Grade.

Those of you on Ben Joy Watch will be disappointed to learn that on Saturday he failed to hit the first ball he faced for six.  He did, however, deposit the next two balls he faced over the fence.  So far this season, his strike rate is 168.00.

Jack Hill hit his seventh century for the club, and his third in Third Grade, reaching 110 against Sydney on Saturday.  During his innings, he passed Paul O'Halloran to become the 39th highest run scorer in the club's history.

Aidan Peek made his debut in Third Grade against Sydney, and celebrated with an unbeaten innings of 34.

Zohirul Islam hit his highest Fifth Grade score (59) against Sydney, passing 1000 runs for the club in the process.

Rakin Rahman hit his first half-century for the club (61) in Metropolitan Cup against George's River.
