Mick Molloy kicks off APL 2014
Australia’s favourite movie-star bowler Mick Molloy is the popular special ambassador for APL 2014, “the 20/20 cricket of lawn bowls”, Club Pine Rivers, November 18-21. The Brisbane Mall launch of APL 2014 was a lot of fun, the crowd joining in for a taste of lawn bowls and getting tips from some of the stars of the game.
With comedian Mick Molloy on the mike and eight bowls stars from the eight APL 2014 teams telling everyone what a great event was coming up, how could November 18-21 not be a huge success for APL pioneering host club Pine Rivers?
On show in November will be six Commonwealth Games gold medalists and 12 world champions, all out to win the $100,000 APL 2014.
Queensland club Brisbane XXXX Gold are defending champions.
The Australian Premier League will be shown live on Fox Sports nationally and SkyTV in New Zealand each night of the November 18 to 21 competition, from 5.00pm-10.00pm AEST.
