Guernsey's Alison Merrien has said she will not be affected by jet-lag at the Indoor World Cup in Australia.

The current Bowls World Matchplay champion will compete at the event in Warilla from next Tuesday.

Merrien told BBC Guernsey: "The first day is the hardest because you get there in the morning so you've got all day to try and stay awake.

"You've then got a whole day of practice the next day which for me is enough time to get into the groove."

Merrien will be joined in Australia by her husband Ian, competing in the men's event, whilst youngster Todd Priaulx is entered in the Junior event.
