Paul Ryan was a finalist in Series 46.

He racked up the then maximum total of 6 wins including a score of 101 against Mandy Buck and qualified for the series finals as #4 seed. He saw off the challenge of Ian McMenzie, before facing Ben Wilson in a tense semi-final. The game hinged on Wilson getting RIVULETS which gave him a one point lead going into rounds 14. Wilson chose six small numbers and Ryan was unable to come up with the target, meaning that Wilson lead by 11 points going into the conundrum, which he duly solved in one second to win the game 80 – 101. Ryan was unavailable for the Championship of Champions XI, and was replaced by Kevin McMahon..
