Last weekend the Northland and Far North Representatives played their annual competition for the Plymouth Publications Trophy.
At Kerikeri, the Northland men were successful in premier one by eight matches to two. In premier two, Northland had success 7-3.
At Kaikohe, the Northland premier women won 7-3 and the Far North were successful in premier two 6-4.
The 1-5 year men and women competed at Kensington and it was success for Northland 12-2 (men) and 8-6 for the women.
The conditions were not ideal, however, great bowls were played by everyone and there is plenty for the selectors from both Centres to review before the next competition in the New Year.
