Tas vs Vic Test Series Teams

by admin on November 14, 2016

The annual Tasmania versus Victoria Test Series (The French Holbrook) will be held at the Spreyton Bowls Club on December 4th to 6th 2016, sponsored by the Devonport City Council. 

The Bowls Tasmania selectors have today announced the Tigers line up for the series, with two debutants set to play their first capped games for Tasmania.  Trevallyn’s Lachlan Sims will make he first appearance in the men’s open team after a long time in the junior ranks and having recently been named in the Australian Junior Squad, while Scottsdale’s Jean Claridge will make her debut in the women’s team after many years in the northern team and more recently in the Tasmanian Development squad. 

Chris Dudman and Bree Mabb also make their return to the State team after a brief hiatus.  The men’s team remains relatively unchanged from the team that played in Canberra at the Australian Sides Championships earlier this year.  While the women’s team will be without Bec Van Asch who will be away on National duties, still maintains an experienced line up with ten players retaining their positions from Canberra with a change of positions for some.
