Tough battle expected

ORGANISERS are expecting stiff competition and some upsets at the ANZ South Pacific Bowling Carnival which starts today.

This was after they saw the competition during the Pineapple Cup which ended last night at the Suva Bowling Club.

Club vice-president Martin Fong said some new bowlers reached the quarter-finals during the Pineapple Cup.

"A new bowler was Lema Matailevu who eliminated Samuela Tui from the competition in the play-offs to reach the semi-finals," he said.

"Samuela Tui is also defending the singles title at the carnival and he would find it tough after the loss in the Pineapple Cup."

Fong said former champion, Pomat Topal of Papua New Guinea would not be part of the competition this year.

"The PNG team will not be coming this year because of financial difficulties but the teams from Australia and New Zealand would definitely be here.

"So the local bowlers would have to step up because these Australian and New Zealand bowler sare like the state champs in their own countries."

The Carnival starts today and ends next Sunday.

Fong thanked ANZ for injecting $10,000 into both events.
