The state pennant winning side of Doug Kinder, John Hetherington and Pedro Rudd narrowly missed the chance to defend their crown.
However Rules Club will still be represented in the senior triples division.
The Wagga and District bowls season finally got underway again last week after bowls were postponed in March due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.
However it was another Rules Club combination of Dennis Rawlings, David Streher and Chris Leonard who scored a tight victory in the final at Wagga Rules Club earlier this month.
Only two shots separated the two teams in the final but it was Leonard's team who held on for a 24-22 victory to progress to the next stage of the competition.
Both teams scored big wins to book their places in the final with Leonard taking a 27-4 win over Bob Wright's Rules Club outfit while Rudd qualified with a 30-17 success over Peter Haby's Wagga RSL team.
The Rules Club also tasted success in the open triples competition.
After coming through a thrilling first round the Rules Club team of Bill Bishop, Glen Fahey and Zac Gabrielson went all the way to the title.
With a 22-21 win over Martin Cousley's Junee outfit in the first round, the Rules outfit downed David Inglis and his Wagga RSL squad 24-15 to set up a clash with Ganmain's Rob Hare, Brendan Allen and Brian (BJ) Hare in the final.
Hare's side just made it through to the decider, after a 21-20 win over Sean Smith's team from Junee in the semi-final.
However they couldn't repeat their efforts with Gabrielson's team running over convincing 31-8 winners in the final at the Wagga Rules Club.
The representative season continues with the president's reserve triples.
