Into the summer break

We're well into a near month long gap without any relevant PDC darts, there's the Development Tour in a couple of weeks, but it's just exbos outside of that, so let's look at the FRH rankings after a triple header from Barnsley where Cross, Aspinall and, from where I don't know, Keegan Brown got the cake:

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

Not a huge amount of changing - Nathan winning one and finalling another gives him a huge jump getting close to the top 10, while Wade either missing the events or doing nothing in them (I forget which) and Cross winning one with Humphries finalling one sees him drop down to eighth.

Lower down, Keegan's win sees him go up to 61st, it's been a fairly solid weekend for most of those outside the top 20 so not a whole lot of shifting there, Ted Evetts making a semi sees him back into the top 80, and that's pretty much it.

So what of the WDF? The big Aussie event was fairly disappointing in terms of quality - we at least got stats to work this out, which is better than what they could do in Antwerp, where Jamie Lewis and Wesley Plaisier got the cake. How they did it, who knows. No stream either for the Australian event, at least outside of domestic which was paywalled anyway. Later on, there's some small antipodean events for which is usually pretty terrible in terms of getting any sort of reliable data, one in Sweden I don't know, then we get to the British Open which I think ought to be covered on Dart Connect. We'll see.
