The thunder from down under

Neil Robertson powered into the quarter finals with a wonderful 13-6 victory over Shaun Murphy. Robertson stroked in 3 centuries and 6 other breaks of 60 plus on route to victory and its going to take a super human effort from one of his rivals to stop him.

Gary Wilson holds a 9-7 lead over 3 times world champion Mark Selby going into tomorrow morning’s final session. Selby won 3 of the first 4 frames of the session to lead 7-6 but Wilson responded with breaks of 78, 97 and 115 to gain the advantage overnight.

Stephen Maguire leads Crucible debutant James Cahill by a slender 9-7 scoreline. Cahill battled from 7-4 down to level at 7-7 but Maguire fired in breaks of 83 and 121 to regain control of the match.
