TEST SERIES AGAINST NEW ZEALAND – CHRISTCHURCH
We have been invited to send our World Bowls Team to New Zealand to play against them in a four test series. This will not only give the team international practice but will also afford them the opportunity to experience the conditions they will encounter during World Bowls in January 2008. The tests will be played on 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th October 2007.
The Women and Men’s teams are as previously announced and are:
