The Rawson Cup
The Admiral Sir Harry Rawson Cup, commonly known as "The Rawson Cup", was presented to the Sydney University Sports Union in 1906 and is the height of male intercollegiate sport. The cup is fought for throughout the year by men representing each of the Colleges accumulating points by competing in Cricket, Rowing, Swimming, Rugby, Tennis, Soccer, Basketball and Athletics. St Andrew's College boasts winning the Rawson Cup more frequently than all the other Colleges combined, including eleven years in a row.
The Rosebowl is the female inter-college sporting competition. Similar to the Rawson Cup, it is fought out over the year in the sports of Rowing, Swimming, Netball, Hockey, Tennis, Soccer, Basketball and Athletics. St Andrew's College won the Rosebowl for the first time in 2006, only five years after becoming co-residential.
The University Cup
The University Cup is a sporting competition for the co-residential colleges. The University Cup runs alongside the Rawson Cup and Rosebowl. It has been created in order to celebrate the combined achievements of the men's and women's teams in the Intercol Sport at the co-residential houses and aims to promote equality. The Cup has been a generous gift from the Vice Principal of St Andrews, John Sergeant and his wife Jennifer.
