Tuross Head Men’s Bowls


The 2017 Pennant season has ended for the two teams fielded by Tuross Head. The Grade 5 side finished third well behind Moruya and Malua Bay. The Grade 7 competition has a washed out match to be played with four of the five teams in with a chance of winning the flag.

Tuross played its last game on Saturday as they have a bye in the washed out round. On Saturday they returned to form with a dominant 10 – 0 win over Malua Bay. Ian Wratten’s side raced to a 16 – 2 lead after 12 ends and held on to win 23 – 10.

Ronnie Richardson found his best form and steered his side to a comfortable win, though not without a scare. After leading 14 – 0 the team dropped two ‘sixes’ within three ends to see their lead cut to just 4 shots! However, they steadied to win 40 – 20.

Stuart Graham was also in top form as he guided his team to a close 21 – 17 win. After 10 ends they led 13 – 5 only to see Malua Bay draw level at 14 all after 16 ends. Graham was instrumental in seeing his team regain the lead and hold on for the win.

The 10 – 0 victory has put Tuross at the head of the points table with 41.5 points. However, Bodalla (39.5), Tomakin (36) and Braidwood (33) all have the chance to leapfrog Tuross with a game to play. Bodalla travel to Braidwood while Tomakin will host Malua Bay. The results of these games will determine the winner with Bodalla and Tomakin in the box seat.

May Carnival

The annual May Carnival starts on Sunday with a mixed pairs event sponsored by Tuross Pharmacy. On Monday players will compete in the Tuross Head Country Club Men’s Pairs. Tuesday is the Platinum Blinds/Luxaflex Open Pairs with Alan May Motors sponsoring the open Pairs on Wednesday. The carnival concludes on Thursday with the popular Hallmark Real Estate Mixed Medley.

A big thank you to all of the local sponsors who support this carnival.

Major Singles

The Club Championships resume on Saturday with the first round of the Major Singles. As there is only one game in round 1 players are encouraged to play Round 2 matches wherever possible. The dates for round 3 and 4 are yet to be determined as it is likely that our Club will be asked to once again host the Zone playoffs of the Pennant.
