Perth Suns

Established: 2013

Owned by: Bowls WA

Sponsor: Blooms The Chemist

The Perth Suns will go into BPL12 at the magnificent Moama Bowling Club February 23-26 2021 with a new look line-up due to Covid restrictions in WA forcing Cody Packer and Kristina Krstic to sit this series out..

In their place Australian Jackaroo and current Bowls Australia Female Bowler of the Year Genevieve Delves, and past Jackaroo and current national Champion of Champions titleholder Ray Pearce will join with Victorian Lee Schraner to complete the side. Both Delves and Pearce have had outstanding results in recent years, with Delves in particular dominating ladies bowls in NSW. 

The last instalment of the Australian Open in 2019 saw Delves and Pearce take home national titles in the Pairs and with both being outstanding draw bowlers this will be a key attribute in the cut-throat BPL format. 

Retired Australian Jackaroo Lee Schraner will again lead the Perth Suns assault against the best bowls players on the planet. He has been in hot form recently winning two Victorian State Titles.

Australian Commonwealth Games representative and Gold Medalist Josh Thornton will be calling the shots at BPL #12 for the Perth Suns.

Victorian based Thornton will assume the role given WA’s representatives are unable to make the trip due to COVID restrictions.

Thornton’s bowls resume is impressive with highlights including:

  • 2018 Commonwealth Games Gold Medalist
  • 2018 Trans-Tasman winner
  • 2017 Australian Open Pairs Champion (with Barrie Lester)
  • 2018 & 2016 Australian Open Fours Runner Up
  • 2014/15 Australian Winners & PBA Pairs representative at World Indoor Bowls

To name but a few of the many events he has been successful in.

Currently the Participation Coordinator at Bowls Victoria, Thornton will bring a new dimension to play as he strives to make the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games team and hopefully add a BPL title along the way.

Watch out for another big series for the Suns as the team get ready to shine on the Nations biggest stage in February 2021 at Moama Bowling Club.
