Title: World Cup
Post by: Rat Catcher on June 10, 2019, 06:57:32 PM
Fantastic darts from Ireland, captained by Steve Lennon, to finish runners up to Scotland - our best result to date. Both Steve and Willie (O'Connor) played out of their skins. Regular contributors will know that I've been a fan of Lennon since I first saw him throw on TV a few years back... the way he's progressing it won't be too long before we have an Irish world champion. In fact, I reckon once he beats van Gerwen once or twice on the big stage he'll be the next big hitter, bit like Anderson after beating Taylor in the Players Championship the first year he won the WC. Anywaysanall, it was O'Connor who put in the best performance of the tournament in beating Rob Cross (who did very little wrong) with a 115 average. In the same tie Lennon beat Michael Smith giving Ireland a memorable 2-0 victory over England to set up a semi-final clash with Hoilland in which they easily beat van Gerwen and Wattimena in the deciding doubles game. What a weekend!

Good auld Robbie Brady , had a €5 on 2-0 @ 17/2.  Ireland are not a goalscoring team, if it was Denmark or Switzerland they would have put 4 or 5 past the gibs

That's the plan. I'm going to the mainland next weekend for a funeral and I bought a holiday in Dubai & Abu Dhabi for next month to put myself under a bit of pressure.

197-2 now (after 28 overs), cruising to victory with Morgan at the crease.

Through to their first final since 1992... appropriately (or not?) with the winning stroke coming from our own Eoin Morgan's bat... he seems to get better with age, he actually broke the record for the most 6s in a one day game earlier in the tournament.

Mad to decide a World Cup on most boundaries but it was a tremendously exciting game.

I hear on the wireless that the relevant governing bodies have agreed to avoid major sporting events such as the Wimbledon final and Silverstone from clashing going forward.
