COACHING

31st Jan 18 - Our 3rd instalment from the coach has been sent through. I've had some positive feedback from a bowler who read the coaches tips and incorporated it into her game with immediate effect. It doesn't matter what level you currently play at, a little tweak might be all you need to go to the next level

LETTERS

TIPPING

29th Jan 18 - With the ladies sectional play completed on Saturday, I can now announce the winner for the Ladies tipping and the overall tipping. For the Ladies, regular reader Bill fraser won the day with an impressive 15 out of the 26 sections on offer. Next best was Peter Flack on 14 tips with a swag of people getting 13 correct. Overall though Jeff Adams did enough to hold on to his lead with 64 but equalling him was not me, I only got 10 ladies correct to finish 3rd, but Cameron Harris with 13 correct ladies tips leapfrogs me and finishes equal 1st on 64. Brad Ball also with 13 ladies right to come equal 3rd. The full list of entrants and their scores in the tipping area

26th Jan 18 - The mens tipping is over, 60 tipsters trying there luck, the most successful were 3 tippers on 53 out of 76, pretty good going, but with the ladies tipping to come we have no winner yet. Leaders so far are an unknown tipper, although he or she did not tip the ladies so they won't feature at the end, Jeff Eaton and me!! Closely followed by Cam Harris on 51. With 26 sections in the ladies it is anyones to win, although Ash Sharp with 39 may not even overtake Mr Anonymous who didn't tip at all!

RESULTS

29th Jan 18 - Another thrilling days play, a first time for both himself and his club, Warren Holt is the Mens champion for this year. And the ladies sees Kristina Krstic power away in the 2nd half of the contest to take her 2nd singles title in 3 years. Both runners up were valiant in defeat, Mitchell Cranswick playing out of his skin and hitting the front late and Irene Arndt tried her guts out all day right to the last end.

28th Jan 18 - Well we are now at the pointy end, what a day of results and 4 unlikely players in the mens and a couple of ladies who have been there before. It makes for an enticing day at Manning tomorrow. Live action will be shown on the Bowls WA Facebook page with commentators Aaron Delaporte, Clive Adams and Cameron Harris.

Results courtesy of Bowls WA here

27th Jan 18 - Day 2 of the mens singles, sectional play for the Ladies singles.

16 remain in the men, Shane Loftus in a cracking game winning over Dave Rankin to advance. He plays Brad Ball who was far too good for me after my upset win over Matt Mitchell. Scott Edmonds looking very comfortable with his 2 wins looms dangerous but strikes Charlie Slavich who is in some seriously good form. That will be worth the admission price.

Mitch Cranswick a name we aren't familiar with yet but maybe for the future. He came back from a massive deficit against Daniel Patterson and then held his nerve with a brillian draw shot when down 2 and Stokes to draw for the game. He plays Matty Ayres after 2 solid wins. Gavin Faulkner knocking out his teammate Ryan Moyle in the morning and then kept his form going to win over Laurie Johnson. Russell Bates winning the battle of the Russells, 21-15 the order of the day in this section of the draw.

Peter Madigan with the huge win over teammate and last years winner Blake Nairn plays Kevin Pickering also with a couple of 21-15 wins. Daniel Brown with 2 comfortable wins and in an area of the draw where you would favour him to get to the semi finals from here but Gary Keep will have something to say about that, The Collie wizard with 2 good wins will fancy his chances.

Our final foursome in the quarters sees Lindsay Pickles do what was required but he now faces Warren Holt who looms as a real dark horse this year in the state singles, a very accomplished player pushing for state selection and going deeper will do his cause no harm. The bottom area is left with 2, Daniel Trewhella having all the answers over John Slavich, Bill Brandsma defeating Kyle McIlroy, Clive Adams and Mark Masel who defeated Shane Knott in a huge surprise.

Hattie has sent me her thoughts about the matchups for tomorrow, thanks again Hattie for your input.

Irene Arndt to keep her good form going and is my tip. Julieanne Summers will enjoy being back at Ozzy Park, she will go through. Helen Heal looking to go one better this year than runner up should win this.

Manning match up, I tipped neither of these two to go through so what do I know? I would like to go with Sally to keep her head and go through. I suspect Linda will win through over Robyn but not easily. Lisa and Kristina, what a match up early on. Both great bowlers and a great game on the cards. I'm going for Kristina

Wendy, according to the percentages seen on this site was a bit of a roughie that I picked but she came through. I am going for her to keep on going. Sue and Karina, another Manning match up. I think Sue's experience might see her through this one. Noelene will keep her good form going here

North Beach team mates, they will have each others measure I reckon. I will go for Cathy to go through. It was hard enough to pick these players section, let alone pick a winner in the knockouts. I reckon Maggie for the win. Sue Neill rolled over Hailey in what seems to be a very difficult game according to the scores. Keep that going Sue and she will win over Robin. Alexandra shows that when I don't have stats on players it's very hard to pick. However I still think Pauline will win this one despite Alexandra's comprehensive wins.

26th Jan 18 - Day 2 of the Mens Singles is tomorrow, Day 1 of the Ladies starts tomorrow. 38 games to be played and my quick thoughts on them, Hattie of course tipped fore the ladies, head to the tipping page to re-acquaint yourself with her selections

Wow, over 1000 competitors, 170 sections in the singles alone. the country bowlers put us city bowlers to shame, more than double the entrants, about 11 clubs required to host games. It's fantastic really, hats off to the country folk. You could easily say the countryweek singles would be the biggest test of stamina to win in the state.

RESULTS

21st Jan 18 - The State Singles kicked off today in windy but sunny conditions, perfect for bowls really. Most of the known names got through, including our tipping fav Clive Adams untroubled against Gary Caffell to proceed. He must be in some seriously good form. The section of death 70 saw Lewis Grigg proceed, all players winning 1 game but the pounding he gave Beau Manton in their first game 21-3 gave him thr shots required to get through. Tom Mitchell not coming up after his ankle injury which must be causing him, Manning and the state selectors now some concern. Hope it gets better soon because a Tom Mitchell in full flight is hard to counter.

The sectional scores can be found here and the knockout rounds can be found here

There look like some exceptionally good games next week, I will go through the 76 sectional winners during the week and give my thoughts on the games.

TIPPING - State Singles

21st Jan 18 - Tipping has now closed, 61 entries for the men and 53 for the women. The Mens is wide open according to our tipsters, 26 different men selected, the favourite is Clive Adams with 10 selections, followed by Manton with 7, Knott 6, Packer 5, John Slavich and Daniel Trewhella 3 and Gary Caffell, Daniel Brown and Anthony Williams with 2. The ladies is a bit more clear cut, 11 people selected and Kristina Krstic the most with 16 closely followed by Helen Morss on 15. Then Noelene Abe with 7, Laura Merz and Lisa Featherby 4.

If you playing today all the best of luck and see you out on the greens

19th Jan 18 - I know it's taken me forever but I have completed my thoughts on the singles starting Sunday. If you have already tipped and want to change based on my selections, feel free to send another off and i can overwrite your previous tipping.

It should be a great singles event this year despite dropping 9 section from last year. Why are people not interested in singles any more? If I knew how to do a poll I would put one up because our good bowlers need to play a lot of high quality games even people who think they are no chance, it provides our top bowlers with a game they have to play well to win, all games are good for them and we want to win the Sides series again, so we can all help with doing it. Enter in state events, it's only $21.

18th Jan 18 - Hattie has sent to me her thoughts on the ladies, whilst it doesn't start for another weekend, the tipping does shut Sunday morning so her thoughts may be a help to those that don't follow the ladies bowls. And yes I will get to the remaining sections, life is taking over!

17th Jan 18 - Some more of my selections and also the percentages are showing

14th Jan 18 - Tipping is now up and running!

13th Jan 18 - The State Singles draws for both the men and the women was released this week. They can be found here and here.

Tipping will be up soon this morning or tomorrow, it will be a tough one with over 100 sections to tip from, but see how you go!
