Kyabram bridge players Dr Michael McQueen-Thomson and Wayne Leppard have continued their impressive competitive comeback by winning the Victorian Country team title.
The pair, in combination with Echuca father-and-son combination David and Jamie Thompson, took on five regional champion teams from country Victoria including those from Ballarat, Sale and Traralgon.
Mr Leppard said the four-man team had a good mix.
‘‘Michael and myself are in our sixties and Jamie’s in Year 10. He’s a member of the Australian Junior Team and is a very good young player,’’ he said.
The team finished with a 100 per cent record in its five games and 149 international matchpoints compared to their nearest rivals’ total of 68.
After 15 years out of playing top-level competitive bridge together, Dr McQueen-Thomson and Mr Leppard won both the pairs and the team titles, again with the Thompsons, at the Northern Victorian Bridge Championships at Bendigo in May.
‘‘We only started playing seriously together again earlier this year but we’ve been going pretty well so far,’’ Mr Leppard said.
‘‘The four of us will be playing together in the Grand National Open Teams championship at Tweed Heads from November 30 to December 2.’’
