THE Albury District Bowling Association has missed out on having a representative in the Zone 8 (Riverina) team for the inter-zone championships in Sydney on September 7 and 8.
The team announced after a recent selection meeting in Wagga is dominated with Wagga District representatives.
There are eight players from Wagga, four from the Southern Slopes District, two from the Riverina District and one each from the South West District and Southern Highlands.
The meeting was attended by Albury District president Noel Trainor, who nominated himself and North Albury bowlers Brett Furze, Stephen Broad and Allan Ross as possible inclusions.
Albury was the only district to miss a representative.
But it appears likely that it will have players included in the zone team for the annual four rivers challenge being hosted in the ACT in October.
The team is Isaac Raynor (Wagga RAFC), Peter Thornton (Griffith Ex-Services), David Inglis (Wagga RSL), David Ferguson (Wagga RAFC) s; Tim Crampton (Tumut RSL), Bryce de Bruyn (Wagga RAFC), Rick Potter (Barmedman), David Quigley (Cootamundra Country Club) s; Wayne Foote (Temora), Brett White (Wagga RSL), Rob Marshall (Wagga RSL), Bruce Lack (Temora) s; David Streher (Wagga RAFC), Michael Anthony (Barmedman), Pedro Rudd (Wagga RAFC), Christian Morgan (Narrandera) s.
It is expected promising Damien Miller (Young) will accompany the team as a reserve.
Trainor is the manager for the inter-zone team after volunteering.
He will miss accompanying Albury’s team playing in the President’s Cup at West Wyalong the same weekend.

They were the only unbeaten team with six wins and another Wodonga combination of Peter Bowan, Josh Rudd and Andrew Hurst ran second with five wins and a draw.
