  HOST  CLUB  WIND  DOWN  THE

             WEEKEND  WITH  A  SOLID  WIN

HARBORD's reputation as the zone's grade 7 specialists was a result of them winning the 7's trifecta from 2013-2015, and it took three years for them to get back down to business. 

There were only two sides in the seven's this year and somewhat unusual considering past year. Possibly a result of bowler's seeking to play in a higher grade.

Considering the green speed was a good 15 seconds and the wind throughout the game appeared to do a full three sixty, the large crowd enjoyed good quality bowls.

Possibly the advantage of their home ground saw Harbord kick off to a solid start and lead 34-21 after 23 ends.

While they were never headed, this margin only varied a few shots, until the final stages, when Harbord drew away to record a solid flag win.

                                     FINAL SCORE: 69-42

STATE PLAY-OFF: NELSON BAY

BELROSE: Len Jenkins, Rob Henderson, Peter Ferrett, Jeff Wood, John Tomlinson, Dean Daniels, Morrie Thacker, Barry Rose, John Elphick, David Peart, Andy Little, Graham Hartmann (mgr), Richard Lewis.
