Very brief post-Euros post

Did not expect a Wright > Wade final, but hey, good to see Peter hit a bit of form after what's been a bad year whichever way you look at it, also good to see Wade, who's not been playing badly, get himself into the Slam and get a nice wedge onto his ranking, which should solidify things although still see him a bit outside the top 16. New FRH rankings:

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

Schindler drops out, but is only a board win on the floor behind Wade. van Veen rises up to a solid #33, less than 1k behind Pietreczko. Challenge Tour is done - Owen Bates claimed the second spot after a good run in the final even to pip Hendo to the post, getting the two critical wins in deciding legs.

I'll try and get back tomorrow evening and do some quick stats on the race for the worlds ahead of a Wednesday/Thursday Pro Tour double header, which will also see many players see themselves needing to hit the PDPA qualifier in order to save their card.
