#159: Rob Cross, Matt Porter, Devon Petersen, World Matchplay Preview Special

July 16, 2020

Co-hosts Alex Moss and Burton DeWitt bring you a stacked World Matchplay preview special. First, PDC chief executive Matt Porter (11:49) calls in to review the darts leader's return to action last week, the PDC's plans for future events, and what we can expect from the World Matchplay, which starts this weekend. Then, Devon Petersen (33:43) joins us to reflect on his impressive showing at the Summer Series last week, narrowly missing out on a World Matchplay debut, and also give his thoughts on how a major event will play out behind closed doors. Next, Rob Cross (1:06:04) calls in to look back on his win in Blackpool 12 months ago, the PDC tour's return last week, and how he's feeling ahead of the defence of his World Matchplay title. Plus, co-hosts Alex and Burton give their take on the Summer Series, pick out their favourite World Matchplay final, discuss which of the top four seeds has the toughest first-round opponent, and make their predictions on the final line-up and winner of the Phil Taylor Trophy a week on Sunday. Enjoy!
