Stats From BDO World Champs

1979 Murray Smith First Round 68.73
1981 Gordon Allpress First Round, no average recorded on web
1982 Gordon Allpress First round no average recorded on web
1993 Peter Hunt First Round 82.44
1995 Peter Hunt First Round 81.21, Second Round 86.01
2003 Peter Hunt First Round 83.49
2004 Peter Hunt First Round 82.08
2006 Warren Parry First Round 82.06

Peter Hunter is the only NZ player to make the last 16 at the BDO World champs. There were other players like Robert Grant and Robbie Furmage who went but I cannot find the stats on the net. they may have not made the first round.

If you go to the you tube link below titled The Lakeside - 1995 at about 1 min 43 secs in you see Peter, I am pretty sure it is him with a beard, doing the haka outside the venue.

Stats From PDC World Champs

2006 Warren Parry eliminated first round with average 82.06
2007 Warren French out first round with 78.6
2008 Warren Parry out first round with 83.56
2009 Warren French Prelim round 54.95, First round 76.74
2010 Warren Parry first round 78.89. Phil Hazel prelim round 83.15
2011 Preston Ridd prelim round 84.68 and first round 71.29
2012 Warren French 85.88 prelim round and 85.29 first round.

Above are a few stats from PDC world champs for NZ players. No player from NZ has got past the first round. We need to produce a player who can average at least 90 to 100 for them to have an impact at the PDC world champs. I cannot see us doing much better this year than in previous years. Dave Harrington is representing NZ this year and is a very fine player but there is no one in NZ who can consistently average over 90 in my opinion so I am not expecting much but of course I am hoping he gets a kind draw plays above himself and his opponents play below themselves. If he can win his prelim match and first round match he will have gone further than any other Kiwi. The championships start late December. Warren French is pictured. He has the dubious honour of having our lowest average at the World Champs but also the honour of having our highest average.

Mystery Party Goers

After a hard day of darts I came home to this group sitting on my deck having  a good time and playing cards. Do you know who they are ?. They smile and laugh a lot. I may recruit them for the West City Darts association if no one else claims them. They let me play cards with them but every time it looked like I might win they would change the rules!

Counties Manukau 30 West City 18

Counties Manukau defeated West City Darts Association 30 to 18 in a North Island Shield challenge held at the Bellbird Tavern, Manuwera earlier today. After the pairs it was 20 to 12 with still a mathematical possibility of West City winning but it did not happen.  Player of the day for Counties was Phil Cave and for West City Steve Holt. They are in photo above. One other player worth mentioning was Barry Kapa hitting back to back 180's in a game he and Sonny Matekurae played against Steve Holt and Dean Webster and then hitting a third one in the next leg and Dean hitting another. Other players to get 180's were John Sinclair, Geoff Wells and Sonny Harris.
Teams were Cody Harris, Sonny Harris, Barry Kapa, Sonny Matekurae, Marsh Tamatea, Tere Tou, Tom Williams, Frank Speight, John Sinclair, Willie Hopokingi, Steve Overslizen, Andre Albertyn, Sam Bryant ( Captain), Henry Tekena, Phil Cave and Richard Hinga for Counties. West City were Monty Tuhua, Mike Day, Steve Hanley, Geoff Koster, Steve Holt, Dean Webster, Tony Lee, Jeff Harold, Ron Glavish, Gordon Comrie, Marc Skinns, Jeffrey Wells, Blair Hutchinson, Gary Whyte, Peter Page and Anthony Benitez.
Special mention of Steve Overslizen finishing first on 130 and then 110 in game against myself and Anthony Benitez.
Many thanks to Counties Manukau for the food afterwards and the efforts of their committee.

Player Of The Day - Tukina Weko

Tukina Weko ( Tukz) defeated Chris Taylor 4 to 3 in the final of the Wednesday night Auckland Chartered Club League Premier Grade singles held at the Papakura Club, Papakura last night. His winning legs were 20, 21, 20 and 23 darts. Chris's winning legs were 18, 18, 18 darts. Tukina had an average of 72.39 for three darts and Chris had an average of 75.25. The anomaly of the loser having the higher average can be explained by the fact Tukina won the bull to start the leg 6 out of 7 times meaning Chris only threw first in one leg. Best leg of the evening seen by me was Tukino throwing 152 start, 180, 99 and 70 finish in 11 darts in one of the earlier games.

The Big Game

This Sunday at about midday the West City Darts Association North Island Challenge Shield team will gather at the club rooms in Glen Road, Ranui for the trip down the Southern motorway to play Counties Manukau. The club Captains Mike Day and Steve Holt will conduct a role call to make sure everyone is there and maybe a few frantic phone calls to locate any stragglers. There are 16 players in the team plus reserves and sometimes players are still recovering from there Saturday nights and lingering in their beds or someone else's if they got lucky. Once everyone is accounted for there will be a few drinks issued to the players not driving to sustain them on their journey and maybe a few practice darts thrown. Then a convoy of cars containing players and supporters will head to the Bellbird Tavern, Manuwera for a 2 pm start.

The team will have been selected after the Club Captains have studied the results of every game played at West City every club night for the last 11 months. There will be charts and schedules showing how many games each player had played, how many they have won or lost and how big a winning percentage they have had. Each player will have been given a player rating. Using this information and their cunning dart playing minds the Club Captains will have selected the team and chosen the pairings and their positions in the top 8 or bottom 8 as best meets the needs of the team.

In 2009 the score was 27 to 17 to Counties. In 2010 it was 27 to 21 to Counties. In 2011 it was a 25 all draw. The winning team has to score 26 to win. If it is a draw the holders keep it.

Once the team arrives at the venue there will be more drinks and some more practice. Then just prior to starting the West City Captains will gather the team in the courtyard of the Bellbird and issue the last instructions which usually go along the lines of " Make Sure You Win ".

Counties will be doing something similar. Then their will be a few welcoming speeches and the games will start. The result I will not predict. But I will predict it will be fun, a great occasion, there will be sportsmanship on both sides, many cries of " Come on the West " and " Go Counties ". At the end on it one team will feel disappointed and the other will feel elated. There will be more speeches and then a feed put on and it will all be over for another year until the plotting, scheming and preparation commences again.

It is heresy to say this but it does not matter in my mind who wins or who looses. For me it will be a day of great enjoyment, fun, of doing my best, supporting my team mates and respecting Counties.

I do say " Bring it On".
