Jo Edwards ibnto final

6:17 am on 29 April 2010

New Zealand's Jo Edwards is through to this afternoon's women's singles final at the bowls World Cup at Warilla in Australia after beating Guernsey's Alison Merrien.

The reigning champion will play Australia's Karen Murphy in a repeat of last year's final.

Edwards needed a tie break to beat Merriam and says she was lucky to win while Murphy remains unbeaten in the tournament and hasn't dropped a single set in eight rounds of play.

Whatever happens, New Zealand will have another medal to add to the tally; making three from four categories in the 2010 World Cup and World Junior Cup event.
