Premier League Darts: Leeds

Darts

ByTheMinDarts

Evening all, @RobSutton22 in charge for the first two matches of the 2016 Premier League, our venue this evening is Leeds

First news is that Gary Anderson is unwell and won't play tonight, Michael Smith will therefore play twice on his PL debut

So revised fixtures: Wright v Smith, MVG v Wade, Taylor v RVB, Thornton v Chisnall and Lewis v Smith

So the top 10 in the world fighting it out in possibly the strongest Premier League ever, we will be with you right through to May

Here we go then, 11,000 Yorkies are ready and Michael Smith is first to take the stage.

And here comes snakebite, whose hair looks my Gran's carpet, very colourful

Certainly, a fair amount of hair products on that stage, hope there isn't a fire

Right Peter Wright to throw first, GAME ONN!

A reminder it's a best of 12 legs format. The Twenty20 of Darts

Smith misses top to end a nervy first leg, Wright comes back for D8 and takes the first leg. PW 1-0 MS
