Real brief update

A bit later than I wanted, but I've got 10-15 minutes to quickly whack something out - Smith got the job finished in Munich a bit ago, then over the last weekend we've had a bunch of stuff happen - some minor WDF events which I won't go into, some complete randoms got the cake in the Asian Tour (although two finals for Ilagan solidified his spot at the top of the charts), Kantele continued a strong start in the SDC and got a third win for the season, leaving him in a very strong position to make the worlds, while in the Pro Tour, Ratajski got a very important win for multiple reasons over surprise finalist Chris Landman, with Dirk getting a third title of the season. Are there five better players in the world right now than van Duijvenbode? I don't think so. As we warm up for b4b Euro Tours across four countries, this leaves us with the updated FRH rankings looking like so:

1 Michael Smith
2 Michael van Gerwen
3 Peter Wright
4 Gerwyn Price
5 Luke Humphries
6 Nathan Aspinall (UP 1)
7 Rob Cross (DOWN 1)
8 Dimitri van den Bergh
9 Danny Noppert
10 Dirk van Duijvenbode
11 Jonny Clayton
12 Joe Cullen (UP 1)
13 Ross Smith (DOWN 1)
14 Dave Chisnall
15 Damon Heta
16 Ryan Searle
17 Gabriel Clemens
18 Andrew Gilding
19 Jose de Sousa
20 Chris Dobey

I'll be back tomorrow evening with first round thoughts regarding Austria.
