Bruce was in great touch from the first end and set up a match winning lead of 19-3 before Mark found his line and length on a tricky, damp green. To Mark’s credit, he won the next six ends to narrow the gap to 19-15 and looked threatening, but Bruce was always in command and closed out the game 31-18. Bruce is a former Victorian representative player and a winner of numerous Club and District championship titles over his 37 year bowling career and is a previous winner of this prestigious title in 2003 when he beat now Australian Champion Aron Sherriff. Bruce will now progress to the Bowls NSW State Finals at Nowra in November with the State winner gaining a berth into the National finals.
