The Crest Chicken/Roofing and Profiles Bowls Fiji team arrived yesterday after participating in the Asia Pacific Bowls Championship in New Zealand.
Team manager Curtis Mar said the objective was to try and qualify for the Bowls World Cup.
“We came short as we managed to qualify five out of eight rather than getting the full eight. But we have had the bonus of winning two bronze medals.”
He said the team take consolation playing against professional teams like Australia and New Zealand.
“We take heart in the men’s Triples team beating New Zealand in the pool game,”he said.
“They have done pretty well considering the limited resources we had.
“We are proud of what they have achieved now we are just looking forward to the World Bowls 2016 in Christchurch.
“We were fortunate to have an Australian national coach come down and help us for three weeks.
He was there with us and has identified a lot of things we can work on,” he said.
Mar acknowledged the team sponsors Goodman Fielder and Roofing and Profiles Fiji Limited.
