Answer: Looks like you have kernel curse or pennywort (Hydrocotyle bonariensis). This is classified as an environmental weed in NSW, because of its invasiveness and potential harm to native species. Digging it up is rarely effective as it readily regenerates from root fragments. The most effective control in your situation will be to use the Yates Zero Weeding Brush to apply Zero to the pennywort leaves while leaving your grass unaffected. Pennywort has a waxy coating making it hard for some weed killers to penetrate the foliage so you may need to use undiluted Zero concentrate to obtain an effective result
