New Zealand has completed a clean sweep in three shearing Tests against a visiting Welsh team.
John Kirkpatrick of Napier and Nathan Stratford of Invercargill, beat Welsh shearers Richard Jones and Gareth Lloyd Evans, leaving Wales without a win in the series.
The Welsh and New Zealand teams drew a Test series in Wales last year.
A New Zealand team is expected to tour Britain again this year.
The 53rd Golden Shears international shearing and woolhandling championships begin in Masteron on Thursday.
