Evening
Mitchell Clegg vs Brody Klinge
Aaron Morrison vs David Platt
Mal Cuming  vs Gordon Mathers
Mikuru Suzuki vs Lorraine Burn
Gerry Starr vs Mick Lacey
Scott Mitchell vs Josh Townsend
Justin Thompson vs Gary Kennedy
Lisa Ashton vs Tori Kewish
Mick Mullaney vs Damon Heta
Jim Williams vs Brad Thorp

I'd like to see Heta take this out, really like the way he goes about his darts (other than the fact he seems to use formula spinning stems, deadful piece of kit!)

I'm not a fan of the Formula Sports board being used. Seems very firm and unforgiving. Lots of darts barely clinging on and also at bad angles. The white paint on the spider and number ring is chipping very easily and the colours are a bit weak. It is more expensive than the One80 Gladiator III here is Australia and I certainly wouldn't be considering it

Think you'll find it's a Shot board - probably a Bandit - that has just been rebranded for the Formula Sports shop, and no doubt being used as they are one of the event sponsors.  The Bulls Advantage is the same board as well and I gave mine away within a week as it was far too hard for me.

Seen Tori Kewish's results before winning loads of events in Australia but can't recall ever seeing her on a stream or tv before - looks a pretty good player, should be a good game between her and Lisa Ashton later on today.

Posted the same in the Shoutbox last night when I started watching.  The looks - and the sound - tells me it's a Shot board.  Quite a bit firmer than a G3, and miles more than a Blade.
