Hill returns to international bowls duty

5:59 pm on 9 December 2008

Aucklander Jamie Hill will return to the New Zealand bowls team for the first time since the Melbourne Commonwealth Games two years ago.

Hill has been selected for next year's World Cup indoor singles champs in Australia, in March having spent much of the past couple of years competing in the professional game in Britain.

Canterbury's Jo Edwards will play in the women's singles.

World women's singles champion, Val Smith, is shortly to undergo knee surgery and wasn't considered for the World Cup.
