FORMER national number one Praneel Singh will use this weekend's National Ranking Tournament as a build-up to the Oceania Snooker Championships that will be played at the end of the month.

This is the first ranking tournament for the year. Singh is currently ranked number two in Fiji from last year's competitions.

Only the number one and two ranked players get an opportunity to compete at the Oceania competition.

Singh said the ranking tournament would be tough but his form last year is a testament of his prowess, meaning he might once again play in their the semi-finals or final.

"The competition this season will be tougher as some senior players are returning, namely Walter Robinson and Mosese Nawaqakuta, who both are top players and favourites in any tournament they enter," he said.

Singh said he did not have enough time to practise because is busy with classes.
