Most people using the Newport Centre on the Sunday of the final were happy enough, with a showpiece featuring Ronnie O’Sullivan and Ding Junhui. But there was one casualty of quite possibly the last Welsh Open at the venue. The Newport and County Horticultural Society were unable to hold their regular weekend meeting due to the snooker, and had to move it to the following Wednesday. At least if the tournament moves to Cardiff that will no longer be a problem. And as commentator Phil Yates pointed out, there had at least been plenty of plants during the previous 12 days. Amazingly, this was not his worst joke of the day.
