5 talent laden sides will go to battle in Merredin 8th to 10th of January. These are arguably the best 5 side’s I’ve seen line up in my time playing this event East Avon Lots of talent and experience with o60’s champ Bill Fraser leading the charge.
Players to watch (PTW). Stinger Griffiths playing 2 and Geoff Main both ooze class Silky Wilkins and Thomson round out 4 quality skips

Goldfields
A professional outfit under the guidance of Joe Kennedy
PTW. Watson and Cowcher up front will be hard to beat, with Osmetti playing 2 after dominating last time round.

South Eastern
4 outstanding skippers,and unbelievably depth.Any side that can have Shark and Currie as 2s will be tough to beat. John is one of the best players ever to represent this zone.
PTW Vaughan was a stand out in Zone ,as was Butler, playing 3 this time round. France Sharp and Cooper worth a Squizz

Avon
Always competitive. Honk Schell back in is a good get along with Wayne Butler make up quite a few changes for Avon.
PTW Hayden Smith is worth getting a front seat for, young guns Minchin and Carr may impress. Hudson May be their oldest but still one of their best.

Central Wheatbelt
Impressive line up with lots of experience. Capable of going the whole way this year
PTW Ant Ryan is a gun, Blake Smith with Desi M as his 3 with cause grief for the opposition. Usual suspects,Lancaster, Jubes and Smithy round out a good outfit

The Verdict
South Eastern......on rink wins
Good Bowling.
The Phantom

Review of Eastern Zone RR from the Phantom

The Eastern Zone Round Robin hosted by the Merredin BC was one of the most interesting and thrilling ever seen in this zone.
The weather and the conditions were tough, but so were the bowlers as draws and tight aggregates were common place.
Results saw the last round between East Avon and Avon a winner takes all result.
Avon limped into the final with consecutive aggregates of 4 shots and then a thrilling 1 shot win over Central Wheatbelt with the rink of H Smith picking up a 3 on the last end. East Avon didn’t get everything easy but looked in better form.
But alas, the last end saw East Avon 3 shots up with the rinks of Jones v Fraser and Schell v Thompson each with 1 bowl to play and Avon holding 2 shots on each rink. Thompson narrowly missed his shot and Jones didn’t need to play his last bowl. Avon win by 1 shot, again.
So, the Phantom gets it wrong when he tipped the SEBL and by saying Hudson was Avon’s oldest player when it was Wolfenden.
Congrats to the Zone players selected for Busselton.
