SOUTH Tweed Sharks travelled to Salisbury on Saturday evening for their Queensland Premier League bowls clash and were victorious 74-58 and winning two of the three rinks.

This win now cements a top four position for the Sharks.

Kelvin Kerkow was in his world's best touch as his rink won 31-15 over Alex Mathews.

In an awesome display, Kerkow played some unbelievable drives through the narrowest of gaps and on one end sent the jack sailing off the green and was very fortunate not to injure other players and spectators.

He then followed up this powerful hitting with precision draw shots and on one end drew twice within an 2.5cm of the jack on a difficult head to collect two shots, but more importantly, averting a three-shot loss for that end. Kerkow continued this relentless performance for most of the game.

He was ably supported by lead Sally Hickman, second Dean McWhinney and third Geoff Hawken.

Neville Jenkins continued his winning form with a close 24-22 win over Gary Andrews. Jenkins at one stage was 10-18 down but his rink of Anne Marie Peart, Hec Beswick and Nigel Smith all rallied to storm home to victory.

Sean Baker's team had their second loss for the season. This rink has been brilliant all year so a loss at some point in time was more than likely. It is good this loss has come before the finals and not during them!

In other Premier League games second-placed Wynnum Manly had a sound 70-54 victory Bribie Island, Pine Rivers handed out a three rink drubbing to Capalaba, Greenslopes beat South Toowoomba , Springwood accounted for Ferny Grove and Helensvale easily beat Hamilton to just about wrap up the minor premiership.
