Rob Sandlant at work with text book style.
Congratulations to Rob Sandlant (2nd) and James Corbett (4th) at the Bisley Queens.
At 1000 yards Rob Sandlant of Australia, Richard Jeens of NLRC and Simon Carson of Ulster all joined the chase producing a frenzy of nameplate swapping and sweeping on the leader board. With Corbett an early finisher on 5 off, the race settled into a nail biter between Jeens, Sandlant and Carson each creeping up shot after shot with just 3 off.
Jeens, Sandlant and Carson finished on 297 counted out by 44, 33 and 30 centrals with Corbett fourth after his win last year.
