2 – 4 - 2
Australian Pairs allows both people on a team to play Lead and Skip.
In the first end of the game the Leads start off with 2 Bowls each.
Then the Skips play their 4 Bowls.
Then the Leads complete the end with their final 2 Bowls.
Thus, the Leads act as Lead and Skip in the same end.
In the Next End the roles are reversed.
The Skips playing First with their Two Bowls.
Then the Leads play their 4 Bowls.
Then the Skips complete the End with their final 2 Bowls.
This alternating pattern continues through out the game.
"Aside from the extra walking, in the Australian Pairs, the rules are the
same as a normal Pairs Game."
