Colin Lloyd has heaped praise on Rob Cross after his recent World Matchplay win, a tournament which of course Jaws has won.

He said he’s a class player and he proved his grit and worth during the showpiece event at the Winter Gardens.

He added that for him he’s level headed and that he knows what he wants which is the good thing about him.

“Rob Cross – absolutely fantastic,” he said. “Everybody was saying will he win another major title after the World Championship? Was it a fluke? Of course it wasn’t a fluke. He is a class player and he proved his grit and his worth.

“The crowd got on his back a little bit but he stayed focused and got on with the job in hand and he’s now the ninth player to be crowned World Matchplay champion, so fair play to him.

“He’s level-headed, he knows what he wants and the great thing about Rob Cross is he puts in the effort. He puts in the practice, he puts in the hard work. When you do, you deserve every reward that you get.”
