TOUGH competition is expected on the final day of the ANZ South Pacific Bowling Carnival Pairs tournament at the Suva Bowling Club greens today.

The top eight teams have qualified for the quarter-finals which will start at 8.30am.

In the opening quarters, Abdul Kalim and Ratish Lal will face Sonny Vakatalai and Sai Tokalau followed by Suren Prasad and Ramesh Chand's team up against Australian Mark Rayner's team.

Rayner and his partner created a major upset yesterday after toppling national reps Samuela Tui and Arun Kumar in the elimination rounds.

In the other quarter-finals, Saki Nakeke's team will face Australian Jerry Jenkin's side while Semesa Naiseruvati and his pair will take on Greg Blair's team.

Tournament director and Suva Bowling Club vice-president Martin Fong said there was a good mix of players in the quarters.
