Peter Ljung also impressed for the hosts on 10 paid 11, while former world No.4 Rune Holta added eight and SGP star Maciej Janowski scored seven.

World Championship leader Jason Doyle and fellow Aussie international Max Fricke led the Rospiggarna scoring on eight paid nine points apiece. Vaculik scored a straight eight, while Jacob Thorssell tallied seven.

Swedish star Andreas Jonsson battled hard for five paid six points as he made his return from a broken collarbone.
