TAHLEAH Put­ney will take on a New Zealand team as a Queens­land rep­re­sen­ta­tive this week­end.

The Gayn­dah lawn bowls star has been se­lected to play in the High Per­for­mance Test Se­ries at Mus­grave Hill on the Gold Coast.

The 14-year-old was one of six women cho­sen to rep­re­sent Queens­land in the un­der-18 di­vi­sion.

Queens­land will take on the Auck­land Re­gional Youth Squad from De­cem­ber 20-22.

Last year the Queens­land U18 team won and Put­ney will be try­ing to keep the ti­tle on Aus­tralian shores once more.

Taleah’s mother Robyn said the se­lec­tion came af­ter “Bowls Queens­land watched her progress over the whole year”.

Re­cently spon­sored on a two-year con­tract by equip­ment man­u­fac­turer Edge, next year will be Put­ney’s sec­ond con­sec­u­tive se­lec­tion in the pres­ti­gious U18 Queens­land squad.
