No Share For Welsh As Kiwis Complete Shears Tests Whitewash

Wales has been left still to claim a shearing test win over New Zealand in New Zealand after losing the final test of the teams’ Elders Primary Shearing Series at the weekend.

Kiwi shearers John Kirkpatrick, of Napier, and Nathan Stratford, of Invercargill, beat Welsh shearers Richard Jones, of Corwen, and Gareth Lloyd Evans, of Bylchau, in the test at the Pahitua Shears on Sunday by almost 18pts.

The commanding victory gave New Zealand a 3-0 series win, to go with the earlier wins at the Rotorua A and P Show last month and the Otago Championships a fortnight ago.

Kirkpatrick and Stratford had drawn a test series against Wales in Wales during a UK tour last July and August. A New Zealand team is expected to tour the UK again this year.

First to finish Sunday’s test, shearing 10 sheep in 9min 45.61sec, more than 20 seconds before Evans, the second to finish, Kirkpatrick now heads to Masterton to defend his Golden Shears Open title, recognised by shearers as the biggest goal in World shearing, possibly bigger than the World Chasmpionship.

Result:

Elders Primary Wool Shearing Series, Third Test (10 sheep): New Zealand 79.166pts (John Kirkpatrick 9min 45.61sec, 39.481pts; Nathan Stratford 10min 7.69sec, 39.685pts) Wales 97.161pts (Richard Jones 10min 33.12sec, 44.556pts; Gareth Lloyd Evans 10min 6.1sec, 52.605pts). New Zealand wins series 3-0.
