'I love it, try and beat the oldies' - Kiwi teen aiming to represent NZ in lawn bowls

Kiwi teen Seamus Curtin is a jack of all trades and is eyeing up the chance to represent New Zealand on the international stage in lawn bowls.

The 17-year-old from Wellington says he has always dreamed about playing for the national team since he was a kid.

"The goal is to be a Black Jack and even go higher than that and be a great Black Jack," said Curtin.

He has recently won 31 from 33 singles matches from March to April, including an unbeaten tournament at last month’s Intercentre championships.

"I just go out there and try and do my best. I love it so, just try and beat the oldies," said the under-21 champ.

Lawn bowls commentator Kevin Hickland said the teen can be a star of the future in the sport.

"He was playing against guys who have played for New Zealand and won titles. He got on there, no fuss and did his job," said Hickland.

"Sometimes you can sense someone has got that x-factor. He is one that definitely stands out."
