PHIL TAYLOR and Peter Wright both progressed with little fuss yesterday but Andy Hamilton almost became the first high-profile casualty on another night of World Darts drama.
The 12th seed had to fight back from a set down to scrape past Dave Richardson 3-2 and reach round two.
On Saturday it’s the turn of stars including Terry Jenkins, Simon Whitlock and Bob Thornton to step up to the oche and try to avoid falling flat on their face against unfancied opponents.
Elsewhere there’s a couple of huge rugby union Pro12 clashes with four teams vying to end the weekend top of the table. Glasgow are 4-9 at home to current table-toppers Munster (7-4) and Ospreys are 1-2 for the win against 2-1 shots Ulster.
There’s also the likes of international Test cricket, World Seniors snooker qualifying and plenty of Stateside action on a packed day of sport so post your tips and chat here and good luck with your bets.
