Priaulx reaches World Cup semi-final

TODD PRIAULX is through to the semi-finals of the World Cup after a brilliant day for the Guernsey bowler at the Warilla Club in New South Wales.


He overcame previously unbeaten group leader Iain McLean 4-7, 6-5, 2-1 in the final match of his round-robin to finish with eight wins from nine matches for third place in the group.

He then took on Ali Forsyth of New Zealand in the semi-final play-off.

Priaulx claimed the first set and although Forsyth hit back to level, the Sarnian won the tie-break to earn a memorable 11-6, 2-11, 2-1 victory and a semi-final against McLean on Thursday.
