FOUR players will represent the country in snooker at the Oceania Championship in Australia from tomorrow.

National number one Jiten Prasad, number two Praneel Singh, number three Deepak Jai Ram and Vineel Nand confirmed their spots in the tournament early this month.

Billiards and Snooker Association of Fiji president Dr Praveen Maharaj said the overseas exposure would be a good experience for the four.

"We ask the players to be good ambassadors of the sport and country and be consistent with their performance in the competition," he said.

"We wish them all the best in their games."

This is Prasad's second trip to the Oceania Championship, Singh's fourth, Ram's third and Nand's first.

"Fiji's best ever performance was by Deepak Bala a few years ago when he reached the last 16 of the competition.

"We ask these four to give it their best shot next week and try to equal or even better Bala's achievements."
