Winning combination

SAI Tokalau may be new to bowling but he has already started winning titles.

On Sunday, Tokalau partnered Semesa Naiseruvati to take out the Banana Cup at the Suva Bowling Club.

The two Tamavua Club members defeated Eminoni Turagabeci and Laqere Netava 26-16 in the final of the Rena Distributors-sponsored event.

This was also the first time Tokalau and Naiseruvati had partnered in a competition.

Tokalau, an avid golfer, only took up bowling eight months ago and never thought he would be able to win a title this early.

"I like to play golf but just came into bowling less than a year ago and even though I didn't expect to start winning titles, I did come in with a positive attitude and mentality," he said.

Naiseruvati praised Tokalau for his performance and said he would become a better bowler with more games.

"As a new bowler, Sai has been playing well and I think his experience as a golfer has given him an edge in bowls," he said.

"I am honoured to play with him and I think he has a good future in the sport and could even become a national rep."

Tokalau said they would partner up to defend the title next year and would also partner up for any pairs tournament.

Suva Bowling Club manager Sanjeevan Nair thanked sponsor Terry Watson and all the bowlers for making the tournament successful.

Meanwhile, the club would now work on preparing for the third Business House Lawn Bowls competition later this month.
