Former world championship runner-up Simon ‘The Wizard’ Whitlock faces Kevin Painter in week three of the Premier League darts in Belfast early on Friday morning (AEST). The former bricklayer, from Deception Bay just north of Brisbane, currently heads the standings after collecting a win and a draw from his opening two matches, while Painter was on a receiving end of a nine dart finish from fifteen time world champion Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor in the last round. Taylor renews his rivalry with Dutch great Raymond van Barneveld in the final match of the night.
Andy Hamilton and Adrian Lewis are paired against each other in a rematch of last month’s World Championship final, while Gary Anderson and James Wade do battle in the other fixture.
