Alstonville pair Rodney McCabe and Peter Taylor have taken out the 2019 NSW Champion of Club Champions Pairs title, winning a gripping final at South Tamworth Bowling Club.
McCabe and Taylor were locked in an epic battle with Raymond Terrace duo Clinton Doust and Matthew Baus. The lead traded several times and was not greater than 3 before the final end.
Alstonville led by a single shot going into the final end, with the jack moved several times Doust and Baus were forced to play attacking shots to manufacture a result. The result did not eventuate and Alstonville scored a 4 to blow the score out 19-14.
McCabe and Taylor progressed to the NSW Pairs final with a solid win over Michael Wilks and Jay Breust (Merimbula) while Doust and Baus eliminated Tailor Appleby and Nathan Dawson (Kurri Kurri) in a close-fought contest.
