Tweed trio too strong

OF the 28 teams that contested the Seabreeze Bowls Tournament, not one could eclipse the Tweed lads at Pottsville Beach Sports on Tuesday.

Home club hero Jim Banks and South Tweed Sports' Tony Miller and Nigel Smith flew the flag high for the Tweed, with a dazzling display of veteran bowls.

Having dominated proceedings on the opening day, the talented trio entered the second and final day as firm favourites, and true to form bowled their travelling opponents away for the Lion's Share of the $3800 purse.

“The two day sectional tournament is the biggest and most popular event on the Pottsville Bowls calendar,” PBS's Merv Brady said.

“It's always a brilliant event, and one that invited players and spectators love coming along to.

“We have former state and national players competing, so you would go a long way to see better bowls action on either day.

Open only to male bowlers, Brady continued to say that the social event, which attracts teams from as far north as Wellington Point and as far south as Avalon, was also a good excuse for some guy time.
