Ballarat players have helped Victoria bring home titles from the 2016 Australian National Eight-ball Championships in Launceston.

Kolbe Poole was part of the women’s team that claimed success, while Mark and Matt Curwood and Paull Clack guided the Vics to the top in the open division.

Clack captained the team which won 12 of its 14 games to finish three points clear of South Australia on the table.

Victoria’s women won 10 of 14 to be one point ahead of New South Wales.

Poole was named in the women’s national team that will travel back to England for the 2017 world titles, while Matt Curwood, the junior world singles champion, is currently first emergency for the under-23 Aussie team.
