The Greens The Entrance was treated to some sensation bowls from both states in the test series between NSW and Victoria. The Keno NSW Blues were triumphant in their test over Victoria in the opens. They claimed a 3-0 clean sweep that was a great step forward in their opening fixture for the season. In the the Under 25s, the final test was a close contest that decided the overall series with the NSW boys claiming the series 2-1.
The Keno NSW Blues were again lucky to have the presence of team mentor Brett Kenny, who was able to make a number of presentations to the side before the series kicked off. NSW Coach, Gary Willis, was extremely satisfied with the result today, suggesting the players were definitely up for it.
“Many of the players showed great maturity for the opening test, their preparation was great and the result is very satisfying.” Willis stated.
The Keno NSW Blues face the ACT in the next Test series in early February. Ettalong Bowling Club will be the hosts and we are certain it will be another display of high quality bowls.
