SHERATON is the top seed for the City Forex sponsored Picket Cup which will be played at the Nadi Sports Club this weekend.

The Picket Cup is Bowls Fiji's prized pairs event.

The Sheraton team will include Samuela Tui and Arun Kumar both of whom are national reps.

Sheraton has already bagged one major title this season winning the Hutson Cup last month.

Rewa with Abdul Kalim and Peter Thaggard won the title last year.

However the combination will not be featuring in the two day tournament. Nadi Sports Club bowls co-ordinator Bobby Prasad said the stage is set for two days of great action.

"Sheraton is the favourite because Arun and Samuela have been playing together for a long time," the Portion Pak general manager said.

"The likes of Ba, Vatukoula and Rewa will be a threat to them."
