Zone Championships
Last Saturday several club members travelled to West Dubbo to take part in Zone 4 playoffs. The highlight of the day being the win of Tom Casey and Greig Ball (pictured left) in the Presidentís Pairs. They got their campaign off to a good start with a strong 26-11 win over a pair from Binnaway. The afternoons final saw them take on a pair from the strong Dubbo Railway Club. Despite a slow start, dropping a seven on the second end, Casey and Ball showed great determination to finish full of running for 27 Ė 21 win. The pair will now go on to the state play offs later in the year at Port Macquarie.

Up and coming youngster Ben Townsend contested the Presidents singles, he put up a good performance before going down to the very experienced Greg Collin from Dubbo Railway 31-22. The fours team of Arthur and Robert Corbett, Noel Nicholson and John Ward contested the fours but unfortunately run into a very strong Dubbo Railway Team going down 24 13.

On the local scene on Saturday several championship matches were played. Andrew Trotman had a busy day scoring a good win over Jono Austin in the minor singles 31-13 in the morning. In the afternoon Trotman partnered Michael Went to take on Brett Frame and Paul Henry in a major pairs match. This match proved a real thriller with Henry and Frame with standing a late surge from Trotman and went to sin 21-20.
A major triples match saw Dave Johnstone, Terry Hetherington and Keith Macrae overcome a big early deficit to score a good 28-21 win over Jim Jennings, Max Tomkins and John Corcoran.
