The origin of the CAS

The CAS 2nd XV in 1949, Waverley College

The CAS 2nd XV in 1949

Waverley College joined the Associated Schools of NSW (better known as the CAS) in 1944. It was the sixth (and last) school to join the competition, which had been inaugurated in 1928. In the first year of membership, Waverley won the athletics; in 1948 our Morris Curotta became the first CAS Olympian. This image of the 1949 CAS 2nd XV illustrates the impact Waverley had on the CAS: Captain, coach and 5 members of this team came from Waverley.
