After 3 days events and the overall tournament winner, Brandon Weening won Russell Stewart Trophy
The Weening and Stewart names are synonymous in Australian darts and this weekend they were united once more. However this time it was Brandon Weening, son of Wayne, who took out the Russell Stewart Trophy.
Despite the challenge of the likes of Mal Cuming, GG Mathers, and so many more, it was Weening who took out the Trophy. Weening won event 2, lost in the final of event 4, and made the quarter finals of event 1 and 3.
“It is a weird feeling getting beaten in the final tonight but winning the Russell Stewart Trophy overall. I did not even know I had done that until after the match. To have your name added to the trophy is a real honour.”
“Over the weekend I was pretty solid for most of the weekend and I was performed with how I performed right up until the last match.”
“I now head back to Geelong to reset and get ready to go again in the next four events of the Winmau Pro tour 2022. To lead the prizemoney table against the kinds of names on that list is brilliant but it is just the start, I have to be ready to just as well next time.”
“I have clear goals this year, both domestically and abroad, so this is a great start. To have the Weening name on the Russell Stewart Trophy is a great buzz, Russell is one of the fantastic pioneers we need to thank for Australian darts being recognised on a global scale.”
