Ronnie in World Senior 2016

Postby gcjdavid

By next December, Ronnie would have been 40 years old and would therefore qualify for the World Seniors. So, discuss if he would want to play in the event.

I would if I was him, the lure of holding both titles at the same time would be too much to resist...

Doesn't really matter. The Seniors is entertaining in it's own way, but let's not kid ourselves. It's nothing more than an exhibition tournament.

It would be a glorious moment for Taylor to beat his idol Ronnie.

Obviously depends on how much he's enjoying snooker at that time. But I would like for both him and Higgins to play, semis with Hendry, Willo, Higgins and Ronnie please!

It is silly that they let people still on the main tour into the Snooker Seniors, isn't it? Especially when they are still top 16 players. I mean, to have the current world champion entering a tournament where there are people in their 70s playing. <laugh>

Like I say, it's only an exhibition event, so doesn't matter. But always seemed a bit silly.
