The final is confirmed at the fourteenth Players Championship event and it will see the top two seeds battling it out for £10,000 pounds. It is Rob Cross who was yesterday’s champion and Peter Wright once again aiming for a first title of 2018.

It was the tale of two contrasting semi-finals as the Players Championship double header comes to a close. Cross smashed his way past Michael Smith as he once again reached the round 101 mark which he has averaged throughout.

Wright came from a break down to cruelly deny Wattimena who reached a semi-final for a second consecutive day. Machine Gun seized the initiative in the decider and had 80 left only for Wright to take out 161 to book his place in the final.
