Tweed-Byron bowls supreme at Rookies' championship final

TWEED-BYRON bowlers took out both Zone One finals of the Rookies' championship at the weekend.

In the singles it was John Koning (Pottsville) who beat Adam McKenzie (Mullumbimby) in the decider.

The pairs section was another Pottsville success - Peter McGuiness/John Conning of that club won clearly. They were the only pair with two wins.

The Northern Rivers' dual district winner Warren Thatcher (Lennox Head) lost all three rounds of the singles and finished third with partner John Nasser in the pairs.

The winners of the two disciplines will now contest the state finals.
