THE Victorian Open may have drawn bowls royalty from around the country, but it was Kyabram names that continued to make waves at the competition.
Kyabram coach David Cartwright stood out on the green, climbing to the last 16 in the singles and making the final eight pairs with Rob Sceney.
Meanwhile, Mal Williams, Paul McInnes and Nagambie’s Daniel Nichols just missed out on making the finals, beaten in the fifth knockout round.
And with Kyabram’s Russell Locke also appearing in the winner’s column at the Open, it’s no wonder Kyabram headed into pennant this week feeling confident.
‘‘We were up against some premier league players, so we were pretty pleased us blokes from the bush did so well,’’ Mal Williams said.
‘‘We have some handy players who can mix it with most of them when you get to the pointy end.’’
And while the team may boast some top names, Mal said the club was always looking for fresh blood.
‘‘We would love for more players to join. Anyone who can play bowls or wants to play bowls can come along and learn from some of the best,’’ he said.
