Former rugby player Gerwyn Price claimed his maiden professional darts title on Sunday as he won the Players Championship Seven in Barnsley.

Price, 31, came from three legs down to beat Peter Wright 6-3 in the final and take the £10,000 PDC prize money.

The former Cross Keys hooker left rugby to become a darts player in 2014.

After being defeated by eventual winner Josh Payne in Players Championship Six, Price beat Matt Clark, Ricky Evans and Benito van de Pas ahead of his victory.
