    Match fixing allegations!!!!

    Canada have rocked the genteel world of LAWN BOWLS by accusing New Zealand
    of match fixing by deliberately losing a match to THAILAND at last months' Asia- Pacific championships in order to be in a easier group in the next round.

    WHAT EVER NEXT ??????

    We have cheating in most sports, Formula 1, Rugby [bloodgate], Snooker,Cricket,and Horseracing [Betting] Football [diving etc.,] Tennis, Cycling [Drugs]

    and now bl--dy Lawn Bowling, but will pocket Billiards be next??????

    I understand Nelson Piquet was involved - F1 tyre tracks across the bowling green (or is it rink, I really have no idea!!)

    Not really cheating, just poor sportsmanship. Losing or drawing to get into an easier group has always been popular at the football world cup.

    Have you got a link?
    Is LAWN BOWLS an alias of BLOWS WALN?
    Have Thailand qualified as a result of the alleged Picket involvement?
    Figures.
    We need figures.

    Never played lawn bowls..would like to though, just so I could upset grandad with his tea and biscuits with a 100 mph smasher into the pack.
    You do see alot of what the frogs call "boule" over here though, and I must say its looks rather fun.

    More like 'laws blown'.

    Yes THAILAND did quite well without any help from other teams[well not much anyway.].

    the link is LAWN BOWLS-A GOOD PACE TO BE.

    I played the game for one year,good fun,but my kids gave me so much stick!!!!!
    Old fart etc, so went to the pub instead

    Throwing a lawn bowl is very much like making love to a beautiful women.
    You take aim, roll your balls down the delicately manacured rug, chase them towards the target, penetrate the cluster, and ram the bastard into the gutter.

    Take care because carpet burns can be painful,far better to do it on the LAWN!!!!!!
