It should be noted that the closest Bulls bowl was less than 30cm from the jack in the tightly packed head. What a finish! The win by Maguire and his team also earned them the mantel of best-performed rink of the series, while the overall result in favour of the Barbarians avenged last year’s heavy loss to the talented South Australians. Continuing their previous form the Bulls won the first test comfortably with their rink skipped by Dwayne Edwards standing out, although the Barbarian quartet of ACT’s Terry McInnes, former national singles champion Alan ‘Spider’ Monfries, Nev Mitchell and Craig Russell flew the flag. However, the Barbarians hit back to unceremoniously thrash the Bulls in the next two tests and retire to the fabulous Euston club as overnight series leaders. It was terrific to see young Sunraysia star Sandy Tarrant, who has been out of the limelight for a while since his sensational arrival on the scene as a junior state player several years ago, back in action skipping the local rink. In cahoots with Wayne Gardner, also from Euston these days, promising local Jamie Shields and Coomealla’s Brandon Tyers, the combination totted up successive rink wins as the Barbar- ians topped the progressive leaders board. The Warrnambool quartet of skipper Paul O’Donnell, Allan Pyke, former state singles champion John Leishman and Neil Crisp also contributed a pairs of wins to the Barbarian march on the afternoon of day one. But it was back to earth for the local side on the morning of the second day when the Bulls closed out round four with a 10-shot win to tie up the scores and restore order. Then came the fifth and deciding two-hour shootout, which the defending champions had well in their grasp until Ross Maguire, one of the most talented and best-loved bowlers to ever grace the NSW turf, with the final delivery of the tournament, played the perfect bowl to bring the Barbarians home. - David Allen CUB Invitation All-Stars Series Tri-State Barbarians v SA Thirsty Bulls at Euston Bowls Club The Teams: Thirsty Bulls Rink 1: Dwayne Edwards (Grange SA) skip, Carl Schapel (Grange SA), Trevor Lloyd (Grange SA), Lachlan Bowman (Or- roroo SA).
