Graham John Steve & Ross Win Reserve Fours Final 2017

Graham John Steven & Ross Win Reserve Fours 2017
Peter Muir, Friday, 10 March 2017

Last Sunday the Belrose Bulls Won Zone Presidents Reserve Fours Final for the second year in succession. The Belrose team, different from last year, comprised of Ross Terranova, Graham Gates, Steven Maas and John Treadwell (Skip). Their opponents were Peter Tonks, Paul Barrett, Han van den Heuvel and David Marshall (Skip) from the Balgowlah Club.

Whilst the story has been written on another web site. The "Team" thought their story should be told from another point of view. However they do acknowledge some of the points raised. Sure the Bulls have access to a number of opportunities that help raise a members standard of bowls. However you have to be able to get there to participate, difficult if you are still working.

Furthermore having said that the Bulls team of second, third and skip have only been bowling for seven years apiece. Unlike David who has some 27 years experience, both in the UK and Australia.

Anyway the game started slowly for the Bulls, as they took some time to adjust to the weight on the very slow green. This resulted in them being down 5-10 at the half way mark.


However from that point the game was turned around. Treads taking advantage of some great bowls about a metre past the head, trailed the jack for 4 shots.


That began a run of seven straight ends wins. By that point, their lead was pretty good and it was just a matter of ensuring that if they could not win the end, then only go down by a single.


All four players put down some crackers to ensure their lead was maintained. This they did going on to win 28-13 in what was a fine team effort played in great spirit with the lads from Balgowlah.


The Bulls wish the Balgowlah side all the best for the future.


The Bulls were also happy to have Andy Little, Club President and Zone 9 Representative on hand. Well done Belrose Bulls, winners of the Presidents Reserve Fours 2017. Tough luck though guys no trip away for a State Play off... unless they know something we don't.
