Results have come through from Bowls NZ for the National Club Champs held in Dunedin.
Best performed was Bev Budd who came a close second to NZ Rep Tayla Bruce. This report from Bowls NZ…
“Only one round needed to be played on the final day after two superb games in the fourth round gave Burnside’s Tayla Bruce the national title. 19 year old NZ Development Representative Bruce was up against a -time national title holder and 84 year old Bev Budd – Terrace End who was gunning for a Bowls NZ Silver Star.
The lead would swing back and forth as the spectators watched in awe of both the bowers. Ultimately something
had to give and eventually Bruce edged in front to win the game 25-23.”
In the Men’s Palmerston North finished with 1 win. They might consider their draw unlucky as after having a bye in the first round, their first competitive match was against Browns Bay (Neil Fisher, John Walker, Colin Rogan and Brian Wilson). They lost that game 20-6 and Browns Bay continued to go on and win all of their remaining games to be crowned champs.
