Congratulations to Matt Ellul

July 2, 2015
Congratulations to Matt Ellul on being selected to represent WA as the 3rd Solargain Suns member of the side, there is no question that he is thoroughly deserving of his selection. It will be the first time we will have an all WA side which will help to create interest in the event to an all time high.

Also well done to BowlsWA for selecting a WA player in the vacated position left by Jeremy Henry, rather than replacing him with another Interstate player, terrific to see this happen.

The team of Clive Adams, Thomas Mitchell and Matt Ellul is about as strong a side that could be selected for this event, each player has the all round game needed to compete with the best of them, we have every confidence they will do WA proud and be very competitive, may the force be with them.

Australian Premier League

July 1, 2015
The Australian Premier League series which is televised on Fox Television is in it's 3rd season and will be upon us soon.
The make up of the WA side in the two preceeding seasons was a big sticking point for me, it was a three man side consisting of just the one WA player, Clive Adams.
It was most disappointing we were represented by Jeremey Henry and Brett Wilkie rather than a full compliment of WA players.

Last season a new Eastern State side in the competition saw the departure of Wilkie who played for another franchise, he was replaced by a WA player Thomas Mitchell, Henry retained his place.

This year Henry will play for another franchise so that leaves a spot open for another player, hopefully the replacement for Henry will be another WA player so we would at last have a genuine WA side.

The player I would like to see selected is Matt Ellul, He has the credentials when we look at what he has achieved in the past two seasons.

He won a State pairs title in 2013 and is WA's best performed Interstate skipper after being given that role in the past two sides series carnivals, he finished 2nd as the best performed skipper in the PL and played a magic game which played a big part in the Manning Eagles PL Grand final win.
No doubt there are other players who are very worthy to come under consideration and if it happens that the 3rd player selected is another West Australian player rather than an Interstate player that would be very satisfying.

Word of praise for John McGrath

June 22, 2015
Many thanks to Neville Stevens who sent us this reference regarding the service he received from one of our sponsors John McGrath of Bob Jane T-Marts.

" I know there have been previous testimonials but I would just like to applaud John McGrath and his team at Bob Jane T-Mart in Midland. Once again I made the trip out there to "re-shoe" the boss's chariot. The service, efficient manner and competitive pricing makes the travel worthwhile."
