Duo eyes more upsets

Maciu Malo

BA is gunning for a good outing in this weekend's Pickett Cup Bowls tournament at the Nadi Sports Club.

It will be a combination of golf and soccer as Ba Football secretary Iliyaz Khan teams up with Lautoka Golf Club chairman of trustees Raymond Singh in their bid to cause surprises during the tournament.

The side caused the biggest upset last year when it defeated defending champion Sheraton in the pool play but fell short to win the title.

Khan said the side was hopeful of a better finish this weekend.

"All teams participating will be very strong and we will go in as the underdogs," he said.

"We participated for the first time last year and caused the biggest upset by defeating the defending champions — Sheraton in pool play.

"This win gave Rewa the chance to win the event."

Defending champion Rewa was represented by national rep Abdul Kalim and Peter Thaggard last year.

Singh, who was introduced to the sport by national rep Samuela Tui and Panapasa Matailevu, said he was looking forward to the challenge.

"Bowls is similar to golf whereby in both the sports you have to have the line and length adjusted to get the required results.

"We are looking forward to create more upsets this weekend," said Singh.
