Exclusive Interview With Rob 'Voltage' Cross
Target’s Rob Cross produced his best display of his debut Premier League campaign so far, to demolish the in-form Mensur Suljovic 7-2 in the sixth week of the competition in Nottingham.
The World Champion was relentless on his doubles, finishing 78% of his attempts, as he averaged 106.49 to record his fourth consecutive league victory.
The two points means “Voltage” remains two off the top of the table, ahead of his clash with Welsh number one Gerwyn Price in Glasgow next Thursday.
Fellow Target professional Raymond van Barneveld came away with a point, but was disappointed not to bring an end to Gary Anderson’s 22 game unbeaten run in all competitions.
Five-time World Champion “Barney” fought back from 2-4 down to take a 6-4 lead, but then missed five match darts, allowing Anderson to steal in and claim a draw.
The result leaves the Dutchman poised just outside the top four in the table, as he prepares for a clash with world number two Peter Wright next week in his home country of Scotland.
The next PDC action sees the ProTour continue in Milton Keynes with two more Players Championship events, and a host of #TeamTargetplayers involved.
However, Friday morning (UK time) sees Target’s 16-time World Champion Phil “The Power” Taylor competing in the final day of Super Darts 2018 in Tokyo, having already made it safely through the opening round.
