QLD VS NSW Interstate Test Series
Queensland’s Open and Under 25 teams take on New South Wales in their annual test series on Thursday and Friday February, 21-22. Old rivalries will be renewed when Queensland’s Open and Under 25 teams take on arch-rivals New South Wales in their annual test series this week. This year’s three-test series will be staged at Tweed Heads Bowls Club on Thursday and Friday February, 21-22.
Last year in the Men’s Championships, the Blues took home the Wal Currey Shield silverware but this year, QLD is going all out to reclaim the title. Since 2010, NSW has clocked five overall wins and QLD has four, so the 2019 could be the year when QLD evens the score to 5 QLD and 5 NSW wins over the last 10 years. The Under 25 Men, however, have the opposite situations, with five Archer-Stewart Title wins to QLD (after taking the title last year) and four to NSW since 2010, leaving QLD in a great position this year to boost the results to a tidy 6-4 to QLD.
In the women, NSW has clocked seven The Ashes titles since 2010, with QLD behind at just two overall wins. However, the impressive QLD line-up this year with skips Linsey Clarke, Bolivia Millerick and Chloe Stewart will surely make the Blues worry about defending their winning streak. The Under 25 women are facing the same challenge with seven wins to NSW since 2010.
Test One will be played Thursday afternoon (2pm Qld time) with Test Two (8:30am) and Test Three (1pm) played on Friday.
