FOCUS will be on the Paradise Beverages-sponsored second National Snooker Rankings Championship (B Grade) which starts at the South Seas Club in Lautoka this morning.

Sahil Prasad goes into the event as the top seed.

The tier two competition will be closely contested with many skilful players.

Navneil Maharaj, Isireli Kaci, Rajnesh Nand, Ajesh Chand, Vikrant Sharma, Suresh Papi Singh and Simon Reddy will have the home table advantage.

All of them have been practising regularly and have been participating in the weekly Six Reds league competition.

Hazel Naidu, Ravi Narayan, Rahil Prasad, Francis Ram and Abdul Masood will be the other players to look out for.

Billiards and Snooker Association of Fiji secretary Raymond Reddy said there would be close battles in the B Grade.

Raymond said the players would be fighting for ranking points which would enable them to move up to the A Grade next year.

"The B Grade will be interesting with many upcoming players," he said.

"There will 31 players who have been divided into eight pools. The top two players from each pool will qualify for the pre-quarters. In the A Grade there are 24 players."

Jiten Prasad will defend the A Grade. The Nausori Club player is ranked number one in the country.

There will be a briefing for all the players at the Lautoka Club at 9am today.
