Rainbow Beach Bowls Club win the Super Challenge Super Division teams, despite being the smallest club in the super challenge competition. Well done Warriors!
Last weekend the mighty Rainbow Warriors clashed with Musgrave Hill at Tweed Heads Bowls Club. Saturday saw the warriors win 3-2 against Musgrave Hill the pressure was alive on the green Sunday morning for the Silver finals.
Captain Rick Modin travelled with Warriors Cane Skerry, Jim Hamilton, Mark Jabore, John Clarke, Chris Tost, Glen Whyte, Darcy O’Neil, Barry Andersan, Mick Tobin, Adam Hateley, Keith Baynton, Kosta Ladis and Cole Mills to compete.
Early on in the morning it seemed we had comfortable leads on 3 to 4 rinks with only the Fours struggling against a great team with a 20 year old skip on a mission! The boys fought hard but failed to get up – disappointed but proud to get to the finals. The triples had an early lead and kept it going all day a great game from the boys who were full of fight! Both teams of pairs had a solid lead all day with Adam and Jim finishing well ahead.
Barry and Mickey were leading but after losing four ends where even with one end to go. With a bowl that was all class, Mickey took the end to make it 3-2 for The Warriors. Young Cain played an amazing game of bowls only to be defeated 31-29 on the last end!
Their Super Challenge division has 40 teams, and each team has 12 members – two pairs, one triple, one fours and one single.
