Thirty-two years after he led for legendary Nick Unkovich and
the Okahu Bay four in winning his first New Zealand title,
Rowan Brassey yesterday skipped his underdog composite team
to a stunning 19-18 victory over Andrew Kelly's also
composite line-up to claim his eighth national crown at
Taranaki's Paritutu Bowling Club.
For a player who once served a record 10 consecutive aces, it
was quite some admission by Sam Querrey that he felt he had
served the best he had ever done in his straight-sets win
over Olivier Rochus today.
