Post-Matchplay FRH rankings

Apologies, super busy week, needless to say that I didn't see any decent bets in the latter stages, maybe van Gerwen was marginal value in the final, which would have paid off, but can't take credit for that. Overall a disappointing tournament from a betting standpoint, but we can't complain about the number of good close games that we got, and it's good to see that the best player in the world got his hands back onto a major trophy.

New FRH rankings:

1 Peter Wright
2 Gerwyn Price
3 Michael van Gerwen (UP 1)
4 Michael Smith (DOWN 1)
5 Danny Noppert (UP 4)
6 James Wade (DOWN 1)
7 Rob Cross (DOWN 1)
8 Luke Humphries (DOWN 1)
9 Jonny Clayton (DOWN 1)
10 Jose de Sousa
11 Ryan Searle
12 Dimitri van den Bergh (UP 5)
13 Dirk van Duijvenbode (UP 1)
14 Nathan Aspinall (UP 2)
15 Gary Anderson (DOWN 3)
16 Joe Cullen (DOWN 3)
17 Damon Heta (DOWN 2)
18 Krzysztof Ratajski
19 Dave Chisnall
20 Callan Rydz

There's no real major moves outside of the top 20 - only Rowby made big inroads with his first round win, but Gilding and Lukeman are both into the top 50, Razma is into the top 40, and Lewis is pretty close to the top 32 again.

We're now into a little bit of a dead spell - there's some Players Championship events later this week but they look to have had a fair few players opt out already, then they go off down under for World Series events. There's a couple of Nordic events this weekend, then some Development Tour later in the month, but definitely a quiet spell. There's a big WDF event in Australia, but has already been marred with Littler and Hurrell not playing it, so who knows what the standard will be. Seems to be quite a few silver-level events which will add useful data - if we can get it. I guess I'll give a rankings update after PC 22-24, but other than that, expect a quiet August.
