Premier League Darts: How it unfolded in Nottingham

Friday 15th March 2019 07:15 GMT

Michael van Gerwen and Rob Cross won their matches to go joint-top of the table, leaving Gerwyn Price and James Wade playing catch up.

Wade got a bit annoyed by Mensur Suljovic, Raymond van Barneveld was beaten again but received some sportsmanlike support from Rob Cross. And there was also a moment which made us chuckle...

The best checkout

Nathan Aspinall was beaten by Michael Smith but his Premier League Darts debut will, at the very least, be remembered by one quality finish.

He struck a classy 158 which even left his opponent applauding.

It was a reminder that even though the 'contenders' have not won a match yet, they possess plenty of potential.

Moment of the night

Smith desperately needed a victory, and gained one in the most glamorous possible way.

Fully in control against Aspinall, he casually checked out on 127 on the bullseye.


The funny bit...

Tweet of the night

Rob Cross appeared to be genuinely moved by playing, and comfortably defeating, Raymond van Barneveld.

His classy tweet was matched by the kind words he offered to Van Barneveld, who is bottom of the table without a win in six weeks.

As it stands
