Yes another home game, they come thick and fast now, one weekend after another. This week we welcomed one of our many foes from Rugby ( Grange), always a tough game and this week proved no different. Foes is used in jest all our opponents are friends and we welcome them all.
Its the first time we’ve had 6 rinks for a while and I must add it was nice to see the green full and being used to its full potential, a throw back to the old days. People of all ages, ability and gender enjoying a game of bowls no matter the outcome.
The game was played in high spirits and everyone enjoyed the game, I beleive. The weather held out, quite warm but not overly sunny. Although the Jaguar won 4 rinks against 2 from the Grange, it was the Grange that came out on top. Congratulations to all the grange players, maybe next time we will get our own back. The score was 127v115, this unfortunately means a loss of 12 points, I think when we average it out over the 6 rinks we lost by just 2 shots per rink, this I believe is a result in many ways. it also keeps the average score over the rinks low and means we are still competitive against our opponents.
As I’ve said the Jaguar club won 4 rinks, any other game this should have been enough to take the overall result, not so today. The highest winning rink went to Darren and his team on rink 5 this week, 30/21. Rinks 6 and 4 secured victory in the last end of their game, tight games on both rinks. Rink 2 secured a 6 shot win, fairly tight game, however it was rinks 1 and 3 where the Grange did the damage convincing wins on both.
Big THANK YOU to the following people :
