DEVON TRIO FACE THE AUSSIES

The Australian Jackaroos, with a number of Commonwealth Games and World Championship Gold Medallists in their squad, played a Development Test against a team of current England Junior Internationals, and the result was a 7-5 victory for the Jackaroos. In the England squad were Harriet Stevens and Harry Goodwin, both from Kings BC. Harriet skipped the Women’s Triple to victory, and she played in a winning Mixed Triples match. Her third match was the Singles where she played Ellen Ryan, a World Champion Gold Medallist, and she put up a good performance, only losing out in the end by 21 shots to 18. Harry was part of a winning Men’s Triple, but was beaten in the Fours and the Mixed Pairs. Ian Lesley (Shaldon) was a member of the England team which played five Test Matches against the Jackaroos, with the Australians winning 4-1.
