IT’S time to shake off the New Year’s day hangover and devour a feast of darts with the World Championships quarter-finals taking centre stage today.
Following the shock defeat of Michael van Gerwen in the previous round, Phil Taylor suffered a similar fate as he crashed to Jelle Klaasen.
So defending champ Gary Anderson is now just 2-1 title favourite at Unibet but he faces a dangerous opponent today in James Wade.
Raymond van Bernevled takes on Michael Smith and Klaasen is expected to make it past Alan Norris.
Our resident darts expert Lockuptipster landed two winners from two with his tips on the last day’s action so be sure to check out his latest picks when the thread goes up today.
Elsewhere in the sporting world today there’s international cricket – New Zealand v Sri Lanka in an ODI – plus Pro12 rugby union and a handful of NBA matches among the highlights.
