Last weekend saw the completion of the New Zealand Champion of Champions events with our Northland men; Ian Bowick, Dean McMurchy, Bruce Horscroft and John Anderson of Onerahi, finishing in second place in the fours event and securing another medal for our Northland contingent.
The standard of play from the Northern Regions of New Zealand was very strong with all four finalists in the men's and women's fours coming from the country's northern areas.
Well done to Northland boys who lost to Thames Valley in the final and picked up a silver medal, and to Auckland women who defeated North Harbour in the final of the women's event.
The Māori Bowls tournament for 2022 is to be played in the Hawke's Bay area from February 4-7, 2022 and has now been made an official part of the New Zealand programme for next season.
