Reigning champions Ray Robinson and Tom Whiteley seem destined to retain their Monday Evening Pairs League title at Gainsborough’s West Lindsey Indoor Bowls Club.

The duo underlined their prowess and made it four wins out of four by inflicting a 31-7 hammering on Jim Alsop’s team, who had previously looked dangerous after winning two of their first three matches.

At the other end of the table, Jim Grooby’s team suffered two costly losses -- 23-8 against Eric Dobbie’s injury-plagued team and 28-11 against Gordon Tucker and Keith Woffinden, who duly moved up to second place.

The Tuesday Evening Australian Pairs League continues to be dominated by Phillip Pearson’s team, who stretched their 100% record to five games with a devastating 31-5 win over Merv Johnson and Michael Proudley.
