Bay bowlers combine in U25 state Test success

HERVEY Bay bowlers Jacinta Weier and Kirsty de Waard helped break Queensland's drought in the annual three-test series against New South Wales.

The pair, from Hervey Bay Bowls Club and Pialba Bowls Club respectively, were part of the fours team in the first two days, winning one, then made a victorious pairs team in the third Test.

Queensland's women won their series 3-0, while the men won 2-1, becoming the only Queensland side to ever win both the men's and women's series title simultaneously.

NSW's women's team won the last three series.
