Robert Paxton

Profile

9374682-largeAfter the shakeup of Ranking Points at the end of the season and a not so good season Robert slipped down to No. 6 from last season. Robert will be looking to regain lost points this season and is always a player that fights all the way in his matches and never gives up til the last bowl is played.

Robert is one of the players that came through the Professional Bowls Associations hard fought qualifiers to get into the top 16 and having reached there he will not be giving up his space without a hard fight.
