Royal is through to the second round

7 March, 2016

Mark Royal versus Steve Halmai from Australia was the first match up this morning in the Co-operative Funeralcare International Open and it took the Australian the first set to find his way on the rink. Halmai played some good bowls and the scoreline does not reflect the bowls played both players. It was in the second set that Halmai really came to the fore and gave Royal a tough fight but it was Royal that managed to hold Halmai off to take the set and match. 11-2,8-7
