World Billiards action getting 'set to go' at Northern Snooker in Leeds, with plenty of 'home nations' players, a clutch of Aussies including Matthew Bolton and a load of players from India including current Indian No. 1 Alok Kumar, Pankaj Advani and Rupesh Shah. No Mike Russell as his ban was upheld (albeit reduced), but English entries include Robert Hall, Phil Mumford and David Causier. Singapore's Peter Gilchrist will as always be one of the favourites. Nice to see up-and-coming young Irish players Wayne and Ross Doyle have entered. Two female entries, Gaye Jones and Emma Bonney.
