Zone 9 - Sydney Northern District Bowls
KILLARA WIN ZONE 9 ROOKIES PAIRS
ROOKIE 2018 PAIR'S WINNERS, KILLARA'S SCOTT LAFFER and RICHARD HINSLEY
ABSYMAL CONDITIONS PROVED NO
DETERRENT IN KILLARA'S ROOKIE PAIR'S WIN
A huge margin in their final round secured the 2018 Rookie's Pairs for Killara's Richard Hinsley and Scott Laffer which was played under overcast skies and intermittent showers on what proved once again to be a great surface for zone championships, Harbord's well drained greens.
Winning the first couple of ends under the three bowl, 12 end format is generally a huge advantage as it invariably imparts a degree of confidence to the players, as opposed to a slow start and playing negatively in order to hold shots in the hope of catching up.
After three rounds Killara had a margin of 3 points over three sides who were tied for second, however it was their fourth round win by 14 shots which effectively won them the overall point score.
The State Rookies Singles and Pairs play-offs will be held at Raymond Terrace BC over the weekend of 10-11th November.
