Fagan close to another milestone

12:49 pm on 25 June 2010

New Zealand shearer David Fagan is set to reach another milestone of 600 wins in open class competition at the Royal Highland Show in Edinburgh on Sunday.

He is one win from the target after heading the final at the Romney shears in Kent last weekend.

Fagan and other New Zealand shearers are in Britain preparing for next month's world championships, where they and the wool-handling team will defend their titles.
