Snooker: Murphy comes up Trump(s)!

Shaun Murphy looked in great form today beating the 17 year old débutant Judd Trump by 10 frames to 6.

Murphy started well going 3-0 up and it was 3-1 by the time they got to the mid-session interval. Eventually Trump managed to go one frame ahead at 6 frames to 5 through some great attacking snooker. Unfortunately that was the last frame that Trump won and Murphy won 5 in a row to take the match 10-6.

Trump, along with Mark Allen, have looked the best newcomers to the Crucible this year, with Allen looking especially good going into tomorrows final session leading Ken Doherty by 6 frames to 3. Allen started brilliantly going into the mid-session interval with a 4-0 lead hitting two 90+ breaks in the first 2 frames that could have easily been centuries.

It would be great to see a newcomer go further in the tournament and beating an ex-world champion like Doherty in the first round would be a terrific achievement!!

More news as it happens!
