NEWS - BPL

16th November 18 - Well it's been an amazing BPL08 this year and we are now down to the finalists. Illawarra who were undefeated on Day 1 barely winning a game since have dropped back to bottom spot. Every team except Perth had been in the 4 at some stage during the tournament and Perth with 2 wins today have secured 4th spot to play finals this evening. An amazing performance given they hadn't been in the 4 at all, they will play the Melbourne Roys who they beat when Melbourne were 1st and Perth 8th only a few games ago, so they will be very confident of performing well. Coverage only available on Foxtel but get down to your nearest club or pub that has Foctel, ask them to put the bowls and cheer home the Perth Suns. Our game is on at 3pm WST.

14th November 18 - First day down and one win 3 losses, but two of them tiebreakers and certainly the one we saw on the TV if not for the brilliance of Marshall then Perth had that game sown up as well. If you look at percentages, sets won we are certainly right in this and with a couple of wins today it places them back in the hunt for a top 4 spot.

13th November 18 - The BPL Cup was played this morning and not good news for the WA teams. The team led by Lisa Featherby has gone down to Max Kleinig from SA 5-7,1-9 and Sam Pericas team from Cambridge went down Trystan Smallacombe from NT 4-2, 2-5, 0-1. The Perth Suns are playing at the moment.

7th November 18 - The BPL is back and on Foxtel and Facebook again, it commences next Tuesday the 13th Nov and runs to the Friday night. Foxtel will cover the evening sessions and Facebook will show one game per session using Rinkside Clive.

This season the Perth Suns representatives returning will be John Slavich, Kristina Krstic and making his debut will be Shane Knott. It will be managed this year by Pieter Harris. I'm looking forward to again watching our state reps battle it out and hopefully this year they can win those pesky tie breakers and play some finals.

Don't forget, the BPL Cup is also being played, we are being represented by Sam Perica/Nick Lewis/Andrew Foster from Cambridge and also Lisa Featherby/Linda Warburton/Paul Walker/Renata Coote from Mosman Park. Good luck to them and I'll try as best I can to keep everyone up to date with scores during the event.
