The Prasad brothers of Bobby and Rajnesh, of Nadi, created history last weekend when they became the first siblings to win the Master Pairs at the Vatukoula Bowling Club.

The brothers, of Portion Pak Limited, beat experienced bowlers in the competition.

In the final they were tied 16-all against national rep Rick Eyre and Jona Koroitamana. The brothers won the title during the extra end playoff after they finished 19-16.

In the semifinal, they came from behind by scoring 22-13 to beat national rep, Semesa Naiseruvati and Jone Natava.
“We played well and took our chances,” Bobby said.

The pair is back training at the Nadi Sport Club to prepare for the Banana Cup (pairs) at the Suva Bowling Club in Suva this weekend.

“We look forward to the competition and we will be going as underdogs. We expect tough competition in Suva,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Bred Bank-sponsored Barefoot Bowls Pairs starts today at the Nadi Sports and Social Club.

Bobby, the Nadi bowls director said the competition would run for three Wednesdays.

“This is a new tournament where new bowlers can show their skills. This tournament looks like a hit as 16 teams were done in three days,” he said.
