Team Henselite Richard Collett Richard Collett
"I choose Henselite for the wide selection of bowls and accessories that all players require."
Birth Date: 2 April 1980
Country of Birth: New Zealand
Club: Nelson
Bowl Used: Dreamline XG which is a great turning bowl for all surfaces throughout New Zealand
Why do you use this bowl? I prefer a bowl that will allow for extra turn than having to flatter finish to the centreline.
How and when did you start bowling? My father and grandparents all played, and I officially started playing in 1995.

Who do you most admire? My late grandfather that got me into bowls and was always an avid supporter of mine.
Which other bowlers do you enjoy playing with or against? I enjoy playing with grass roots players at the local clubs. Playing against past and present International players certainly brings the best out of you as a player.
What would you do if you weren't bowling? Keep working on lowering my golf handicap, and searching for the hottest Indian curry.
