An Aussie in the final 8 of the World Darts Championship. Considering how my good mate Donut was making great mileage out of the complete British domination of this sport, he is going to have to swallow a great deal of humble pie if the improbable happens . Just so as you know, Donut, I have pre-baked the pie, and it is currently drying out daily in the HOT Aussie sun. It will be very hard to swallow if we need it in a day or two [img]graemlins/dance.gif[/img] .

These are halcyon days for British sport. Greg Rusedski has beaten Goran Ivansisvnananavitch and is in the final of the Heineken Open in Auckland. In squash Peter Nicol became the first man since janshir Khan to win the US Open. In cricket the mighty Australians are humbled by the lowly Kiwis in the cricket and play is held up for 10 minutes because people are throwing objects on the pitch.

Happy days Davros [img]graemlins/happywave.gif[/img]

I've just read that there were 22 arrests and 250 people ejected - bloody cricket hooligans! They don't like losing do they?

Sigh - you start a perfectly good darts thread, because 4 days ago that's all they wanted to talk about - now the're back on the cricket. Constance thy name is Donut (NOT, LoL ). So you must let me know how our mighty champion gets on - here we go, here we go, here we go!!!!!

I saw the back cover of the local newspaper (melbourne style) this morning, which read "How did we lose?"
Considering the position Australia lost from, its probably a good question.

(Was this a cricket thread?)

*Ducks the metaphorical bottles being thrown by Davros & sylent*

Glennis McGrath banned for one match for dissent! Youse Aussies will have to show some graciousness when beaten.

Greg Rusedski wins the NZ open.

Now, back to the darts. Aussie Tony David, a lifelong haemophiliac (it doesn't make him a bad person) has reached the semi finals of the Embassy World Championship. I feel there is something intrinsically wrong with Australians playing darts. You see the dart doesn't return to their hand when thrown they have to walk to the board and take it out. Stick to boomerangs old bean [img]smile.gif[/img]
