THE North West Billiards and Snooker Association has named a strong line-up to face East in the annual snooker clash at Lautoka Club this Sunday.

North West champion Mahend Deo, former veteran's champion Philip Gock, Fiji Six Reds champion Isireli Kaci, Sigatoka Open champion Ronald Singh and former Fiji number three Nitesh Chand will spearhead the Westerner's campaign.

North West Billiards and Snooker Association president Suresh Chauhan said the standard at the Coastal Rental Sigatoka Open last Saturday was high.

Chauhan said they faced a lot of difficulty in selecting the best for the East versus West clash.

"The West team is represented by players from Nadi, Sigatoka, Lautoka and Ba," he said.

"There many experienced players who are former champions. The players will be practising at their respective clubs daily because of the logistics.

"East has been dominating the event in recent years. But this time we are confident of winning the title. We are grateful to Shop N Save for sponsoring the event." The East versus West starts at 9am.

West Team: Suresh Chauhan, Philip Gock, Raymond Reddy, Simon Reddy, Nitesh Chand, Rahil Prasad, Ali Boy, Ismail Wali, Ronald Singh, Tony Cen, Shalvin Kumar, Rocky Ali, Farouk Ali, Mahen Deo, Rimal Narayan, Vineel Nand, Husmukh Chauhan, Chong Lee, Vinesh Prasad, Isireli Kaci, Mohammed Imran, Nilesh Chand, Mohan Singh.
