Our rowers will contest two B-finals at the World Championships in Lake Karapiro, New Zealand on Saturday.
The two teams — the men’s pair and four — were both involved in semi-final action on Thursday.
Veteran Olympian Ramon di Clemente and Peter Lamberts ended fourth in the pair semi-final. “They just missed out on the A-Final,” said team manager Roger Barrow.
“A good row was just not good enough. But they’ll be looking at winning the B-final on Saturday where positions 7-12th will be discussed. If we can get seventh this will be a good result and we can build for 2012 with this new combination.”
The fours will also contest the B-Final and Barrow sees good prospects for the combination of Lawrence Ndlovu, John Smith, James Thompson and Tony Paladin.
“This is the first time since 2006 that the four has made the semi-final and shows that this is a good building boat for 2012.”
