RSL ready

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

De­niliquin RSL Bowl­ing Club pres­i­dent Tony Tonta will look to build on the suc­cess of last sea­son, as its bowlers pre­pare for round one of the Cam­paspe Val­ley Bowls Divi­sion.

RSL had a fan­tas­tic sea­son last year, win­ning pre­mier­ships in Divi­sion Three and Five, while also re­turn­ing to Divi­sion One for the first time in 18 years.

The club will once again con­test these three di­vi­sions, with Tonta hope­ful of more suc­cess.

‘‘It’s tough to build on suc­cess from win­ning two pen­nant flags but we’re hop­ing we can notch up a few more wins in Divi­sion One this year,’’ he said.

‘‘We’ve signed a few new bowlers that will make their de­buts on Satur­day (to­mor­row).

‘‘We’ve also wel­comed some more ex­pe­ri­enced bowlers to the club that have boosted our stocks.

‘‘There’ll be a bit of shuf­fling around this sea­son so we’ll keep plug­ging along and hope­fully can re­turn to fi­nals again.’’ Teams for round one are as fol­lows: Divi­sion One vs Rochester at Rochester, cars de­part at 11am: Craig Tay­lor, R Reid, D Greaves, M Quor (s); J Jen­nings, F Daniels, T Tay­lor, K Wel­lard (s); M Howe, T Tonta, G Thom­son, L Har­ris (s).

Divi­sion Three vs Moama at Moama, cars de­part 11.30am: R Parker, P Lieft­ing, L Pat­tin­son, A Web­ster (s); C Framp­ton, Chris Tay­lor, Bruce Clancy, R Marchetti (s); W Pat­tin­son, P Kotkin-Smith, C Hil­lier, J Tonta (s).

Divi­sion Five vs Echuca at home: B Leetham, D McCal­man, G Gor­don, K Lester (s); J Lowe, D Stan­more, J Kemp, N Austin (s).
