Fours competition hampered by rain at bowls nationals

4:27 pm on 7 January 2012

The hardy competitiors at the national bowls champs have defied the inclement conditions in Auckland to whittle through more teams in the men's and women's fours.

Play was eventually abandonned in the women's section after the first round was completed but not before singles champion, Sandra Keith was ousted by Olivia Bloomfield's composite quartet 17-11.

The men continued on with Gary Lawson's all star side building momentum with their 21-5 victory against local Max Urlich.

Three rounds of post section will played in the women's fours tomorrow while the men will complete their post section matches as well.
