Skipper is a bowler to watch

CITY bowler Peter Inglis says clubmate Stewart Trigg is a player to watch when bowls finals start tomorrow.

Inglis, who is in his first year at City after a stint with Cobden, said Trigg and his fellow skippers were in good form in the lead-up to a semi-final clash against dangerous Simpson.

City skipper Peter Inglis is part of a City Division One side eyeing off a second consecutive bowls premiership.

Simpson has been one of the form teams since the Christmas break, with five wins from six games.

But reigning premier City, which finished three-games clear on top of the ladder, has again proven it’s the team to beat in finals.

Inglis said it would be business as usual for the majority of City’s Division One players at Colac Bowling Club tomorrow.

“This is my first year at City so it’s a slightly different experience for me; I’d been travelling for three or four years and thought it was time to make the break,” he said.

Inglis said Simpson would pose a challenge for City but players including Trigg helped bolster the Saturday Pennant powerhouse.

“They are second on the ladder for a reason and they have plenty of potential,” he said.

“They’ve been able to get it together more often after the Christmas break and are obviously a big threat.

“Stewart Trigg is back in form and firing, which is a big plus for us.

“And for every win you have, you get closer to your first loss and that’s always in the back of your mind, but having said that we have been able to achieve good things throughout the year.”

Meanwhile, Camperdown Golf takes on Camperdown in second semi-final action at Derrinallum Bowling Club.

Golf’s Ross Fleming said his side knew exactly what it had to do tomorrow after two losses to Camperdown during the season.

“In both games there wasn’t a lot in it, ten shots was about the max,” he said.

“In a game of bowls that isn’t a lot of shots and we are out to win the game on Saturday.

“We know what we want to do and every one of our players knows what’s expected.”
