Warren Parry played one player who fly’s under the radar and is a damn good solid player, Hipi Tewhakaara. Warren won 5 to 1 but Hipi certainly played some great darts.
Darren Herewini played his mate Tukina Weko; Tuks didn’t let him have it all his own way, pushing him all the way. Darren won 5 to 3.
Mark Clever was up against his mate and travel companion this was a great match of the round to watch with Stu Irwin winning 5 to 3.
Semi Final time and all four seeds made it through.
Ben Robb played Stu Irwin. Big Rig didn’t have an easy run in this semi-final, Stingray threw some exceptional darts and took his chances when he could but Ben was the victor 6 to 3. Unlucky Stingray but you can certainly be proud of the great darts you played.
Warren Parry played Darren Herewini in the second semi-final; this was the semi-final to watch it was a topsy turvy match with both players going leg for leg in a real nail biter. It all came down to the last leg with Darren missing the double and letting Warren in to take the match. Warren won 6 to 5.
Finals time and it was the 2022 World Cup of Darts that represented New Zealand team mates up against each other, Ben Robb and Warren Parry. Ben Robb won the bull and threw first. It was a great match up but Ben was just too clinical, Warren had some huge scores and chances but Ben was just too good on the day.
