IT'S all to play for in this weekend's final game of Uppies and Downies after a win from the Downies saw the score board evened out in the epic Workington try series.

Downie Daniel Fryer swam the beck to hail the ball on the capstain just before 10.30 pm yesterday evening, March 2.

It's the second win for Dan, who first hailed the ball in 2022 when the series returned after Covid.

He follows in a long line of family members, who have been hailing balls for the Downies since 1927.

In more recent times, Daniel's father Stephen Fryer and uncles John and Mark Fryer have all hailed balls to win the games.

Although Daniel lives in Flimby, the Fryer family all play down due to his father and uncles growing up in Northside, Workington.

The win followed the first game going to the Uppie hailer 40 year old John Irving, with the tie now making the final game on Saturday, March 6 even more exciting.
