Bowlers Battle For Five Spots

Fiji Bowling final trials for women will be held at the Nadi Sports Club on Saturday.

Five women and five men will take part in the 2018 Commonwealth Games at the Gold Coast, Australia on April 4-15.

“We have had trials for our men and we have selected our five players which will be announced by February 21 by the Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee (FASANOC),”general secretary Abdul Kalim said.

“We will start our proper training programme next week,” Kalim said.
