Jo Edwards remains on track to complete section play unbeaten at the bowls World Cup in Warilla, south of Sydney, after extending her perfect record yesterday.

The three-time champion brushed aside Pakistan's J Gauhar 19-2 15-1 before also beating Guernsey's Sophie Rabey in straight sets 12-3 12-2.

Edwards is the only unbeaten bowler in section two while Australian rival Karen Murphy has a flawless 6-0 record in section one, suggesting a trans-Tasman final could loom on Wednesday.

In the men's draw, Tony Grantham's winning streak was ended by Australian Mark Casey, who leads section two after completing a 6-6 13-2 victory in the final round of day three.

Grantham opened two match assignment with a tense 9-6 10-9 triumph over Malaysia's Izzat Sharmeer Dzilkepie.

He is second with five rounds remaining and should join Edwards in advancing to post-section play which gets underway on Monday.

Defending champion Jeremy Henry (Australia) commands section one with six straight victories.
