Leigh Rickert and Richie Northcott were well deserving 2018 major pairs champions at Mullum.

Leigh Rickert and Richie Northcott have taken out the Mullumbimby Bowling Club’s 2018 major pairs with a 25–16 win over Ross Graham and Ben Leeson.

The game was a nip-and- tuck affair up until the 16th end with tight heads and only one or two shots separating the teams.

The 17th end, however, saw Rickert and Northcott claim six shots and they went on to take the 2018 title by nine shots in an excellent display of bowling.

In the pairs played on March 3, Geoff Flick and Larry Henry defeated Michael Burke and Sharon Thomas 25–14; while in the triples Mike Nicholls, Brett Luker and Jeff Morgan beat Clint Marsh, Terry Fenwick and Jean-Claude Canabou 30–14.

The first round of the 2018 Coopers Brewing Mullumbimby Ex-Services Club Autumn Corporate Bowls was played on the preceding Friday  night in ideal conditions.

In division one KRP is the early leader on 22; followed by Dunno 19.5; Toads At Leisure and Brett Donnelly Plastering 18; In Line Carpentry and Ken Ryan Plastering 15; Can’t Nail Us Down 12.5; Team Sassy and Mr Plug 9.

In division A, Ocean Shore Skips lead with 19; followed by The Hedgetrimmers and AvoGo 18; Stay True 17.5; Unco-Operatives and Five Blind Mice 14; High Rollers 13.5; Sack Bar and Grill 10; and Team Cobbers 9.
