GREG Harlow has drawn the first set in his second round tie 5-5 against Ireland's Jonathon Ross at the World Bowls Championship.

City of Ely bowler Harlow shrugged off an early setback to storm ahead in the opening set of the two-set match up but was pegged back in the final end.

There was much toing and froing in the early stages of the set as the players swopped leads a number of times, but it was Harlow who seized hold of the set in the middle stages.

World number two Harlow was leading 6-5 going into the final end but Ross used his renowned skill at the drawn bowl to nudge himself back into a scoring position and secure the first set draw.
