Ando takes it

Don't think there can be a more popular winner than that, as he stated it's been a while since he's won a stage title, and there can't be any doubt that he's at a level right now where he can still add a bigger one than that. Fair play to Ross for getting to the final, if things drop a bit differently maybe he nicks a first title, but it does at least solidify a top 16 position as we get closer and closer to the Matchplay. New FRH rankings:

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

Elsewhere, it was a pretty good weekend for Brandon Weening, picking up a brace of WDF titles, while on the Asian Tour it was a great weekend for Ryusei Azemoto, while Alexis Toylo is continuing to run away with the overall lead having got a win and a final this weekend, Azemoto got two titles and is looking pretty good to make the worlds as of right now. But it's no rest on the main circuit as we head to Graz for another Euro Tour - there's a few fun names that came through the qualifier, man of the moment Edhouse will look to continue his streak of form, Wessel Nijman and Dom Taylor should be interesting young threats, Danny Lauby, Madars Razma and Karel Sedlacek add good international feel to the event, Romeo Grbavac will get another shot at this level while we see Darius Labanauskas for the first time in a while. We don't know who the home nation qualifiers will be yet, but maybe we see Rusty in the field as well? Who knows. Back Thursday, not sure when as it's a bit of a funny night for me but should have some bets up at some point as we look to continue what's been two pretty good weekends of late.
