Result: Raymond van Barneveld dazzles in Rowby-John Rodriguez rout

Raymond van Barneveld cruises into the second round of the World Championship by thrashing Rowby-John Rodriguez 3-0, while Brendan Nolan and Michael Smith also qualify.

Raymond van Barneveld has thrashed youngster Rowby-John Rodriguez 3-0 in sets to ease through to the second round of the World Championships.

The Dutchman barely broke sweat as 'Barney' brushed aside the 20-year-old Austrian in a dominant display that included a maximum 170 checkout.

Elsewhere, Northern Irishman Brendan Dolan also cruised into the next round with a whitewash victory over Nolan Arendse - who earlier beat Alex Hon in the preliminary.

Dolan will face Michael Smith in the next round as the youngster - who eliminated 16-time champion Phil Taylor last year - beat Mensur Suljovic 3-1.

Jamie Caven, meanwhile, survived a scare to also seal his place in the next phase after narrowly beating Jason Hogg 3-2.
