THE World Darts Championship is back after a four-day break with a super Saturday
line-up as round two gets under way.
Defending champ Michael van Gerwen is just 1-40 to progress past Sascha Stein while a trio of Scots – all seeded in the top 10 – are hoping to do the Dartin’ Army proud. Top of the bill is Gary Anderson v Jelle Klaasen, with the Scot 2-9 against the 17-4 Dutch ace in a clash that has the makings of a classic.
Robert Thornton is 1-3 to see off Ronnie Baxter (14-5) while compatriot Peter Wright is 1-4 against 19-5 outsider Ronny Huybrechts.
Completing the fixture list is Terry Jenkins v Lawrence Ryder and Dave Chisnall against Benito van de Pas.
The rugby union action includes the first of an inter-city festive double-header as Glasgow and Edinburgh fight it out for the 1872 Cup. Glasgow are big favourites at 1-7 against the 6-1 visitors to triumph on home soil today.
Elsewhere there’s the likes of NBA basketball, international Test cricket and ITF tennis on a packed day of sport.
Good luck if you’re having a punt and let’s hear your sporting tips and thoughts.
