Quick UK Open recap post

Not a great deal to say on the final session, Price blew the final, but MvG played bloody well throughout the tournament and any rumours of his demise are well and truly gone. Sadly the world flu on steroids paranoia tour has hit the European Tour with events 3/4 being postponed, we can all go into work on the tube jammed next to each other but we can't watch the darts, fantastic idea.

New FRH rankings:

1 Michael van Gerwen
2 Peter Wright
3 Gerwyn Price
4 Rob Cross
5 Michael Smith
6 Nathan Aspinall
7 Daryl Gurney
8 Dave Chisnall
9 James Wade
10 Ian White
11 Glen Durrant
12 Gary Anderson
13 Mensur Suljovic
14 Krzysztof Ratajski
15 Adrian Lewis
16 Chris Dobey (UP 1)
17 Stephen Bunting (DOWN 1)
18 Jonny Clayton (UP 2)
19 Simon Whitlock (DOWN 1)
20 Joe Cullen (DOWN 1)

Bunting nicking the place last time out was, as expected, only extremely temporary, while Clayton having a fine UK Open run pushes him very close to Bunting himself. Jamie Hughes is into the top 30, Dimitri's up to 23, Jelle Klaasen's back into the top 45.

A brief comment on something I mentioned quite a few posts ago about Noppert doing something dumb in the first (only?) Euro Tour event of the season, it wasn't as bad as I remember, it was only a go for bull on 132 when the other guy wasn't on a shot, he did at least hit the bull first time and go for it second time, so it's at least an attempt for a party piece finish I guess, for whatever reason I was thinking he went bull but hit 25, then hit the treble 19 before laying up instead, which would be pretty darned stupid.

It's just a Pro Tour weekend this time round, I should be able to post some live updates for one of the two days, in terms of non-PDC it's the Isle of Man event, which is ranked highly enough in the WDF for me to want to try to grab the stats, it looks like there was a stream last year so hopefully I can get something out of it.
