THE combined efforts of Sonny Vakatalai and Sai Tokalau upset national reps Samuela Tui and Arun Kumar on day one of the South Pacific Bowling Carnival Pairs competition in Suva yesterday.

Vakatalai and Tokalau beat Tui and Kumar 22-13 during the round robin clash at the Suva Bowling Club greens.

The Fiji combination of Tui and Kumar will be representing the country at the Commonwealth Games in Scotland later this year.

The duo used the competition to perfect their combination. However, the surprise result is a wake-up call for Tui and Kumar.

The other Fiji combination of Abdul Kalim and Ratish Lal remained undefeated after three rounds yesterday.

Tournament official Martin Fong said the event progressed well despite the wet weather conditions in Suva.

"The weather is not so promising but we managed to finish the three rounds for men and ladies," he said.

"There are two upset matches today (yesterday) and I believe that shows the competition level. We're just keeping our fingers crossed for a good weather tomorrow (today)."

The elimination rounds and quarter-final will be played today while the semi-finals and finals will take place tomorrow.
