HEARN ON THE RADIO

Barry Hearn will appear on BBC Radio 5 Live tonight from 9.30pm to talk about his ongoing plans for snooker.

He has already teased the possibility of a World Cup, which is long overdue.

The old World Team Cup was played over four days featuring just eight teams but the World Cup staged in Bangkok in 1996 was a proper international event.

Needless to say it hasn't been staged since.

The Nations Cup was a poor imitation in comparison and has not been staged since 2001.

Snooker is an individual sport but team snooker is a staple of leagues and would create a different atmosphere.

The four UK home nations could be joined by the Republic of Ireland, China, Thailand, Australia, Belgium, Germany, Brazil and various other outposts. The game is played by amateurs in more countries than ever.

Hearn has a number of announcements to come, including broadcast deals and new innovations.

They won't all be introduced this season but the game is now going forward after many years of stagnation.

Colin Murray "well and truly overshadowed" - talking of the Higgo stinger. <ok>

Steve Davis "darkest day, integrity brought into question, players having cloud hanging over them, truly gobsmacked". <ok>

Hendon "partly overshadowed" <laugh>

I am in a queue to talk to ol' Bazza.

The bloke on the other end didn't know what the heck the Players Tour Championship was.

Darts there was nothing to talk about from a presenter point of view so he opened the lines before he fell asleep thinking of something to say <ok>
