Michael Cleary AO (Wallaby, Waratah, Rabbitoh and Rooster) is one of our finest Old Boys. Michael, who attended Waverley College in the mid to late 1950s, is one of only a handful of sportsmen to have represented Australia in three different sports – Rugby Union, Rugby League and Athletics. He was also the State member for Coogee from 1974-1988 and served as a Minister in the NSW Wran Labor Government.
