    As an Umpire or even as a player what would you say to this young lady should she appear on a bowling green near you dressed in the attire shown, I mean this is what we are having to contend with nowadays in Australia and its just not on surely!

    And the stance is all wrong as well, no shoes, but then it is called Barefoot Bowls I guess.

    Can you see this trend being followed in the UK, just what is the sport coming to?

    I believe it's acceptable as long as she has a properly licensed tattoo from Bowls Australia.

    I would ensure she has all the resources she needs to enjoy the game.
    It's a simple game really!!!

    BTW - Where in her outfit does she keep her chalk and measure?

    I would like to think a few here would have her measure if required.

    In a rare hot summer during a league match, a lady from the opposition suggested that perhaps bowls should be played in the nude when it is really hot !
    Unfortunately none of the players looked remotely like the lady performing here so, with a shudder, we decided it wasn't such a grand idea after all. oooh errr Mrs
