Sleaford egg-throwers smash the World Russian Egg Roulette Series in India
A TEAM of local egg throwers have smashed India's finest at the World Russian Egg Roulette Series in India.
The team which consisted of Andy Dunlop, former Russian egg roulette national champion from Swaton, Norry Bell, from South Rauceby, Stephen Bath, from Quarrington and David Leach, from Leasingham, took the title at the championship yesterday.
Mr Dunlop said: "It was a close match going to the final egg - despite having honed our skills in reiki, aura differentia and egg divining.
"We were losing in the initial stages due to the use of foreign eggs."

Despite this, eggs'pert Norry Bell took the final match in a nail-biting game on the last egg to clinch the title after seven difficult games.
The team were rewarded with a silver cup and medals while the losing team were rewarded with a wooden egg cup containing the "shattered shells of sporting endeavour."
In a Russian Roulette Test Match the challenger battles against their opponent on a knock-out basis.
Players sit opposite each other, across a table, while a tray containing six eggs will be presented - five hard-boiled and one raw.
Each player takes it in turn to select one and then smash the egg onto his or her own forehead until one player finds the raw one.
The finder of the raw egg loses the game or match.
While in India, the team who are all members of the Rotary Club of Sleaford also spent time supporting the Polio National Immunisation Day as part of The Rotary International Project to rid the world of the disease.
