Another Seniors National Sides series which was this year played at Queanbeyan, has come and gone. The W.A men's State Senior side were runner up last year at Warilla, it was a disappointing series in comparison to other years, the side unfortunetly have put in their worst performance since the event started in 2007.
The Men's side got away to a bad start and never really recovered from that time on. These things do do happen from time to time but we can be sure the selectors will be sharpening their pencils in readiness for the next series.
Speaking with the manger Roger Barns at the conclusion of the event he pointed out that it was a demanding event with seven games played over 3½ days, and from here on it would seem future sides would be selected from mainly the younger end of the 60 age bracket.
Roger also commented that many of the games were very close to or equal to Premier League here in Perth.
It would be remiss of me to have not mentioned the performance of another WA rink, that of Lee Farrell Jim McElroy, Geoff Gunning and Brian Jepperson who represented the Northern Territory and finished 5th best performed rink in the series.
A highlite for the team was their defeat of the best performed rink in the series that of Rex Johnson who lost only to Lee Farrell's rink
Well done to the Ladies on their performance to finish in 3rd place and defeat both the winners NSW and the runner up side Qld.
WA Ladies won the series last year which was their first appearance in the event and would not be too disappointed with their performance this year, they to had a bad start to the series but managed to overcome that to finish equal 1st in wins but 3rd overall
