Snooker Champions

The world of snooker has always produced many great World Champions from Fred and Joe Davis, to the present day of Ronnie O,Sullivan and John Higgins

Snooker had it's heyday in the 1970s and 1980s, with the great champions such as Alex Higgins, Steve Davis and Steven Hendry.The rivalry was as fierce then as it has always been in the world of snooker.

Here are some of my favourite quotes involving the snooker World Champions.
