ADELAIDE - Australia and Scotland shared the spoils on the second-last day of the world bowls championships in Adelaide.

Australia won the women's triples and Scotland beat Australia to claim the men's title.

The hosts enjoyed their third title on Saturday as Australia's female bowler of the year Natasha Van Eldik, national captain Lynsey Armitage and world No.4 Karen Murphy won their final 21-9 against New Zealand's Lisa White, Jan Khan and Mandy Boyd.

All five female members of the Jackaroos contingent exit the event as reigning world champions, a title that they carry for the next four years, after Kelsey Cottrell and Rebecca Quail topped the dais in the pairs on Thursday.

In the men's triples, Scotland were pushed to near breaking point by a relentless Jackaroos combination of Wayne Ruediger, Brett Wilkie and Mark Casey eager to repeat the performance that earned them glory in the fours on Friday.

But David Peacock, Darren Burnett and Graham Archer clinched victory 13-12 to give Peacock a third successive triples world title.
