TEAM Merchants was in top form on the weekend and took out the Southern Division Snooker and Billiards Association three-player championship at Nausori Club.

The combination of top players Nitesh Chand, Praneel Singh and Epeli Bua helped the Suva-based Team Merchants shut down a powerful Team Nausori trio of RC Junior, Esala Talebula and Ritesh Kumar.

Team Merchants won the game in a very close finish 3-2 and took home the $400 which was at stake.

Merchants Club president Vijen Sunder said he was very happy with the performance of his players and the victory marked a new era for the club under his leadership.

Sunder rewarded his players after the win by sharing the prizemoney.

The next event for the Southern Division Billiarsd and Snooker Association will be a business house tournament.
