THE Qantas Two team took out the World Airlines Bowling Championship at the Nadi Sports Club on Monday.

Qantas Two defeated Williams & Gosling 12-8 in the final.

The Qantas Two team was made up of Grant Allan, Mitch Evans and Roger Kairl.

Williams & Gosling had Santok Singh, Jona Koroitamana and Rick Eyre. The visitors led 10-8 going into the final end. Williams & Gosling recovered two shots before Singh propelled the jack towards the Qantas Two team's bowls to gift them victory.

The match would have gone into a three end playoff had Singh not tried to snatch the last gasp win.

Fiji Airways One took out the third spot. The side had David Aitcheson, Sitiveni Tikoisuva and Dan Vinod.

Christchurch Cargo was fourth.

Tikoisuva, who is the president of the Fiji Airways Bowling Club, said the tournament proved to be exciting. "Fortunately the weather changed after heavy rain on Saturday to allow the tournament to be played on Sunday and Monday," he said.

"Plans have been drawn up to make this event bigger in years to come."

The next tournament will be held in New Zealand.
