New players Lee Wesley, Terry Gilmore, Doug Corrigan and returned player Ann Power all performed well and the experienced members all stood up well, according to Arm Co-ordinator Phil Gude.
“It has been very trying conditions especially for new players and they have done a great job according to their skips,” he said.
“We expect Tuesday to be a hard fought affair that may well determine the final outcome with 32 points up for grabs. ”
Bowls Victoria Chief Executive Graeme Bridge said: “The side are acutely aware that they are playing for a place in the history books as they strive for the golden chalice – three Nationals in a row – and we wish them success.”
New faces have infused Victoria’s Bowlers Arm team as they search for three successive championships in the tournament at Tranmere Bowling Club in Adelaide.
