Whittlesea wizard Nick McIntyre, Wayne Roberts and Dane McKinnon have added last eight men’s triples berths to their strong singles performances at the 2015 Victorian Open.
After two wins and a draw in the sectionals, McIntyre, Graham Guy (Bundoora RSL) and Luke Eddington (Whittlesea) eventually marched into the triples quarter-finals with a 14-11 win over Steve O’Regan, Josh Sanders and Rod Nicholson.
Also through to the trips quarters is Roberts (Yarraville Footscray) – who like McIntyre is also through to the men’s singles last 32.
