Mike Jackson, Team Manager:

“Heavy overnight rain and blustery weather made for challenging conditions but the team adapted well and made it two wins out of two with a 42 shot victory which saw us win on 5 rinks and accumulate 20 points.

The rinks skipped by Mike Snell and Dave Godwin both registered comfortable wins which made the match result safe and it left the other 4 rinks to try and get the all important rinks wins.
There were some tense finishes with Wayne Snook, Steve Snell and Neil Collett all steering their rinks to last end victories. Had it not been for an outragous wick against Gary Morphet’s side we may have pulled off a clean sweep but all in all a very pleasing victory.”
