For “ Hit The Lipstick” by Phill Catterick
FOR anyone who suspected there may have been a little bit of needle between the two league leaders Phil Taylor and Mervyn King in Newcastle on Thursday evening-you weren’t wrong!
Their post match interview was very strange considering neither player gave each other eye contact, and Phil was clearly annoyed at something other than the result of the match-a 7-7 draw. (full article...)
The line up:
Raymond Van Barneveld v Mervyn King
Jelle Klaasen v John Part
Terry Jenkins v James Wade
Phil Taylor v Wayne Mardle
Rod Harrington's Manchester Preview:
Raymond van Barneveld v Mervyn King:
This could be a real good game. I fancy a draw here but King has been the most consistent player of the eight throughout the Premier League. (full report link...)
Here are my predictions:
King will just overpower Barneveld...
Raymond Van Barneveld 4-8 Mervyn King
Part has yet to have a high average in the league, but always seems to win his throw...
Jelle Klaasen 7-7 John Part
Wade will play true to form in this one, and fight of a strong challange from Jenkins...
Terry Jenkins 6-8 James Wade
Phil will come out very strong this week...
Phil Taylor 8-1 Wayne Mardle
