A new winner will be crowned during the ANZ Bank business house bowls competition at the Nadi Sports Club greens at the end of the month.

This is after defending champions Fiji Gas finished as the runner-up in their group which was dubbed as the pool of death.

Three teams in the pool recorded two wins each and the winner had to be decided after the points differential from all matches.

Williams & Goslings, skippered by veteran Shorab Khan, finished ahead of Fiji Gas and ACME Garments.

BSP Life, skippered by Curtis Mar won all its pool games along with Home Finance and Satiya's Fast Food.

Nadi Sports Club bowls director Bobby Prasad said the top teams from each of the four pools had qualified for next Wednesday's semi-finals.

Prasad said the other teams had been placed in the plate, bowl and shield divisions.

"In the cup semi-finals, BSP Life will play Satiya's Fast Food and Williams & Goslings will take on Home Finance," he said.

"We expect tight matches during the semi-finals and are thankful to ANZ Bank for the $3000 sponsorship."

In the plate semi-final Gibson Freight will play Fiji Airways while Fiji Gas will face Wyndham.

In the bowl semi-finals, ANZ Bank will take on Jack's Fiji and ACME Garments will play Pacific Destinations.

In the shield semi-finals, Triple Three will face Westpac Bank and ATS will play APTC.

Round three results: Triple Three 10 ANZ Bank 16, Gibson Freight 14 BSP Life 25, Fiji Gas 42 ATS 6, ACME Garments 12 Williams & Goslings 19, Westpac 13 Satiya's Fast Food 26, Jacks Fiji 18 Fiji Airways 21, APTC 15 Home Finance 33, Wyndham 5 Pacific Destinations 0.
