MVG WINS CLASH OF THE DUTCH IN DUBLIN
By John Lowe, Mar 27 2015 08:35AM
Micheal Van Gerwen defeated his fellow Dutchman and the Premier League reigning champion Raymond Van Barnaveld 7-2 in Dublin last night, MVG averaged 108 with 7 maximums and a finishing average of 44% and for the 8th time in 2015 missed double 12 for a 9 dart leg, Barney had little reply to MVG's power play and will be fighting for survival in next weeks judgement night in Manchester when the bottom 2 in the table will drop out. Lewis v Chisnall was a one sided match Chisnall in control throughout, Lewis looked bewildered and almost resigned to the fact he would lose. Stephen Bunting put up a good fight against Gary Anderson but missed doubles cost him dearly losing 7-4. Wade beat Wright 7-3 with the lowest average of the night 92, that would not usually be good enough to take all the points, but Wright was way below his best. Taylor and Huybrechts played a good match Taylor winning 7-4, Huybrechts now needs a miricale to stay in the league after next weeks matches when he plays Bunting.
The table as it stands means the top 5 are all safe, next weeks draw has thrown up some great pairings,
Huybrechts v Bunting, a point for Bunting would put him safe, Lewis v Wright a win for Lewis would put him safe, a point for Wright would mean he will be playing on to the end and also mean Barney would need at least a draw with Anderson to escape the drop, all interesting combinations, one thing is for sure two players will leave this years Premier League next week and maybe it will be the last time they will make up the elusive 10 players who will compete in future years.
