Snooker Aussie rockets to victory

An Australian young gun has rocketed to victory in the final of the Grand Prix Snooker in Aberdeen. Neil Robertson fired on all cylinders to steam ahead to beat another up and coming youngster Jamie 'The Shot Gun' Cope, 9 - 5. He is the first Australian to lift a World ranking title. Stoke based Cope put on a brave performance in the final session but it was too late as Robertson rocketed to victory. Jamie Cope admitted: ' I never really turned up today, to be honest.' He is called 'the shotgun' due to his potting ability, but was outgunned by the young Aussie in the final. After Paul Hunter's tragic death from cancer, snooker has been rejuvenated by two young guns appearing in their first major ranking final. With the introduction of the round robin in the earlier stages of the tournament, snooker has been blessed by the appearance of a stream of talented young players. It is hoped that Robertson's win will give hope to other young Australians wishing to make to the top of the tree.
