Rebecca Van Asch is ‘stoked’ after her selection. Congratulations to Rebecca Van Asch (Quail) who has been named in the Australian team to contest the 8-nations event in Glasgow from August 26-30. In Rebecca’s words on twitter she is ‘stoked’.

The prestigious 8-nations event, which kicks off on August 26, will be staged at the Kelvingrove Lawn Bowls Club in Glasgow, the host venue of bowls at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

National Coach Steve Glasson said “We have undertaken a robust training regime over the past couple of months including replicating Glasgow-like conditions at the Maribyrnong Park Bowls Club in Melbourne to ensure we were ready to select the most competitive and suitable combination of bowlers to play against the best nations in world bowls.”

Australia will join New Zealand, England, South Africa, Malaysia, Canada and two teams from host nation Scotland in the 8-nation event.

The 8-nations Jackaroos team includes Mark Casey (NSW), Kelsey Cottrell (NSW), Murphy (NSW), Matthew Flapper (VIC), Carla Odgers (VIC), Barrie Lester (VIC), Rebecca Van Asch (Quail) (TAS), Nathan Rice (QLD), Claire Turley (Duke) (NSW), Wayne Ruediger (SA), Sherriff (NSW), Natasha Van Eldik (NSW) and Brett Wilkie (QLD).
