Bowls In Focus : October 2009
one’s three rounds, in which only seven teams emerged unscathed. Others were Maher, Polkinghor ne and Blanch on 59; Hutchins, Ward and Londrigan 56; John Clurey, John Dagger and Peter Durden from Shepparton Golf 56; Yarraville Footscray’s Richard Palczak, Bill Marshall and Terry Vinton 55; Keith Malthouse, Andy Alder ton and Barry Walker from Cobram 54; and Duane Crow, Ewen McPhee and Nor m Carmody from Albury’s SS&A Club, on 53 points, completing the top contenders. However, most interest of the first day’s play fo- cussed on the performance of talented youngsters Heath Smith from Cobram and Tocumwal’s Hanley brothers, Cain and Curtis. Sixteen-year-old Heath, Cain (12) and Curtis (10) are prominent members of the local Murray Kraze Under-18 Development Squad. In the opening round, the trio were languishing at 11-2 down after seven of the 14 ends against Cobram’s Jeff Beasley, Allan McDonald and Mario Crisafulli, but the appearance of a local television crew seemed to trigger the young guns into action. Over the concluding seven ends they collected four threes, a four and a two, while conceding just a single to the experienced host club side, r unning out relatively comfortable 20-12 winners. One greenside wag made the obser vation that the combined ages of the three juniors added to less than every other bowler in the field, except one, Jarryd Smith, who is 25 and plays metropoli- tan pennant at Lalor. At the finish of the first day’s play the lads were positioned mid-pack in the field, having won two of their three star ts. However, losses in the first two matches on day two saw the youngsters decide on a team reshuffle, which saw 10-year-old Curtis taking on the skipping role. And he did it with the aplomb of a veteran, guid- ing his side to an impressive 10-shot win over the composite side of Mick Gooley from Narrandera, Bruce Ash from Corowa, and Rob Ash, also from Narrandera, who were well in the hunt having won four of their five previous star ts. - David Allen Bowls In Focus 29 If so you could be eligible to participate in a clinical trial investigating the safety of a new vaccine treatment for Coeliac Disease.
