The Japan Golf Tour's Dunlop SRIXON Fukushima Open has reached the halfway point at the inaugural Grandee Nasushirakawa Golf Club in Fukushima and Thailand's Thanyakon Khrongpha, Ryutaro Nagano and Hiroshi Iwata share the lead, one ahead of the very credentialed, Taichi Teshima.

West Australian Stephen Leaney heads the Australians in a share of 14th position and four shots from the lead.

Steve Jeffress is next best in 33rd position while Adam Bland and Brendan Jones were the only other Australians to make the cut, Jones continuing his comeback to tournament golf after a long period out of the game before returning to make the cut three weeks ago in Sapporo.
