In the final of the Men’s Singles, the parochial Australian crowd had plenty to cheer about as Kelvin Kerkow defeated Robert Weale of Wales, to take the last medal of the Lawn Bowls competition.

Kerkow's victory came in a tie-break, with a final score of 2-1.

Weale had been aiming to win his second Commonwealth Games gold medal, having won the Fours at Edinburgh 1986. He also won bronze in the Singles at Manchester 2002 and silver in the Pairs at Victoria, 1994 and Kuala Lumpur 1998.

Barry Fleming, Team Manager for Wales, described the contest as a "tremendous game", despite the result.

"Somebody had to lose - that's the name of the game, but I thought he was a great advert for bowls in general and I'm sure everybody tonight thoroughly enjoyed the game," said Fleming.
