BACK FOR MORE
Retired from international lawn bowls after the 2004 World Championships, but was asked by New Zealand selectors in 2014 if he would rejoin the national team. "The selectors had a pretty good chat to me, but I said that I had to make sure I was actually performing as well. I've had some pretty good performances over the year and that obviously gave me the nod to get back into playing international bowls."
