Shane says that it means a lot to him that he was selected for the north team.

“It will be a good experience and I’m keen to play against some strong sides,” he said. He plays as much as he can each week.

He’s been playing bowls for nine years after his granddad and dad were playing the sport. “My dad and grandad are my bowls mentors,” Shane said.

Shane’s most memorable moment was winning the Queensland U18 singles title and he would like to represent Queensland again.

When asked what he would like to see for bowls in the future, Shane said he’d like to see more people getting out on the green.

“Bowls is very enjoyable and my advice to new bowlers is to put the time into the game. To succeed, it comes down to how much time you spend on the green,” he said.
