THE Prasad brothers Rahil and Sahil are expected to create upsets when they are promoted to the Billiards and Snooker Association of Fiji A Grade next year.

This is after the duo impressed at the Deo Shankar-sponsored North West Billiards and Snooker Association Open Championship in Lautoka on Saturday.

They showed a lot of class to reach the final.

Younger brother Sahil who leads the national B Grade rankings defeated Rahil 3-2.

In the semi-finals, Rahil defeated Nitesh Chand 3-1 while Sahil beat his father Yogen 3-0.

Association vice president Raymond Reddy said Sahil and Rahil were in hot form.

Reddy said they were bound to create upsets when they moved up to the top tier competition next year.

"Rahil defeated Nitesh who recently won the A Grade National Rankings Championship," Reddy said.

"That was the biggest upset of the tournament. Rahil's cueing was perfect.

"The association will be staging more tournaments in the coming months."

All together the Prasad family walked away with $600 from the one-day event.
