Rising stars of Illawarra bowls will come together for the Zone 16 under 25s squad in Sunday's (JAN 19) round-robin representative series at Blacktown Workers BC.
It is the first hit-out of 2020 for an Illawarra rep team with several players looking to push their case for selection in the Zone 16 Open squad and state rep opportunities at U25 level.
In a marathon day, Zone 16 will take on zones 10, 12, 13, 15 and Zone 5 who are the hosts.
Dylan Skinner's move from Dapto Citizens to Cabramatta and Corey Wedlock's unavailability has forced a couple of changes with Dapto Citizens' Blake Bailey promoted from team reserve to play lead in Triples.
Jarrod Beckford has joined Citos from Figgy Bowlo and will skip the Triples team, with Daniel Davies to play second and Bailey the lead.
Tyson Arneman (Citos), Noel Stopher (Warilla), Danyon Christie (Corrimal), and skip Jordan Taylor (Wiseman Park) form the Fours rink, with Jayden Gebbie (Figgy Bowlo) and Toby Peters (Citos) to partner up in the Pairs.
Bomaderry's Justin Rumble is the new team reserve.
The annual round robin series will feature many of the best U25 bowlers in NSW and gives our Zone 16 players a great opportunity to showcase their talents.
