Five more finalists were found in the A&P Show Tux Yarding Challenge sheepdog trials at Showgrounds Park yesterday.

Noddy Halley qualified a second dog (Spike) for the final 15 with a top score of 97 points. Frazer Willson and Beau scored 95.5, Henry Gaddum also got a second dog (Tau) into the finals with a score of 95, Merv Utting and Steel totalled 94.75 and Rod Mead and Gem’s 94.5 (pictured above) completed the top five.

“The sheep were pretty consistent all day, much more so than Wednesday,” Mead said. A further five finalists will be found from today’s runs, which all involve visiting competitors.
