World Matchplay: Peter Wright hoping his gallstones don’t flare up ahead of title defence

Peter Wright is planning to avoid eating crumpets caked in butter ahead of his World Matchplay defence with the Scot currently on a waiting list to have his gallbladder removed.

The 2021 champion and world No 1 begins the defence of his crown at the Winter Gardens against Latvian debutant Madars Razma on Saturday, but he has been struggling with his health in recent weeks.

Wright is on a waiting list to have his gallbladder removed and is wary that, in his view, only a flare-up of his gallstones will stop him from retaining the Phil Taylor Trophy in Blackpool.
