WESTS captain James King reckons Rosellas No.11 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."
