Wanganui Hexagonal for men and women junior bowlers, Saturday/Sunday 4/5 October 2014 –

Wellington, Kapiti, Manawatu, Taranaki, Wanganui and Hawke’s Bay will participate in this annual event which provides an insight into top-level competition for developing bowlers.

Selectors Paul Selby and Beryl Skidmore have advised the following teams to represent Hawke’s Bay;
Men, Dave Henderson, Bryan Godber (both Taradale) Grant Hall (Havelock North), Mike Phillips(Heretaunga), Brian Doyle (Havelock North), Rob Wroe (Heretaunga), Keith Redman (Taradale/Heretaunga), Cam Parnell, Paul Viggers Jeff Marston (all Taradale).
Women, Helen Bentley (Heretaunga), Raewyn Cooper (Taradale), Allison Lott (Omarunui), Judy McDonald (Heretaunga), Michelle Robinson (Captain, Napier), Cheryl Simpson (Taradale), Linda Sowersby (Kia Toa), Hilary Wroe (Waipukurau), Jo Wroe (Waipukurau), Sheryl Viggers (Bay View).  Non travelling reserve, Trish McGrail (Napier).

Taranaki men won this event last year, with Wellington second.  HB women finished 2nd last year, one point behind the winners, but with differential of more than 30 points over the winners – Wellington?

It is interesting to note the Wroe family connection, – mother Jo, daughter Hilary and son Rob – all representing HB in this junior representative event.  A rare occasion indeed!

The venue for men has not been advised at this time. Women to play at Castlecliff.
See details of conditions of play etc. on "Representative & Coaching" page.
