Wests captain James King reckons Rosellas No.11 - former Old Boys cricketer and Calrossy alumni- Stewart Morgan "barely knows which way to hold the stick".
However, out in the middle at Harker Oval on Saturday, the tailender played the most important innings of his career alongside man-of-the-match King.
"For him to grind it out with me at the end there was absolutely outstanding," King said.
Morgan only finished with one run, but he stayed with King (68 not out) for over an hour after Wests had slumped to 9-73.
He faced 37 deliveries as part of a last-wicket partnership in pursuit of Belmont's 107.
It came amid constant field changes, turned-down singles and a few LBW appeals.
Morgan said the heart rate and pressure was "very high" while at the crease.
He described the grand final win as "very special" and "something I'll remember for a long time".
"I'm ecstatic. To come from behind like that is unreal. It's the best game of cricket I've ever played in," Morgan said.
He also admitted: "I'm glad I didn't have to face another ball after lunch."
It was a bit of a last hurrah for the seamer as he prepares to hit the open road.
The 29-year-old electrician, who arrived at the Rosellas via Tasmania in 2016, is set to down tools, pack up from New Lambton and travel around Australia.
"It's pretty good for me, I'm actually wrapping up work and going travelling for probably two years so this is sort of my last hurrah. It would be good to head off with another comp under my belt," Morgan told the Newcastle Herald before the grand final.
He was the 12th man back in 2017-18 when Wests broke a 52-year trophy drought and claimed the minor premiership and won both the two-day and one-day titles.
Since then the Rosellas have appeared in two more Tom Locker Cup finals, beating Hamilton-Wickham in the 40-over final earlier this summer.
Former City United batsmen Ben Chew was also part of the victorious Wests side.
