Duzza is the only world-class player they have.

The rest would struggle to make the PDC top 32. Sure, the likes of Mitchell, Unterbuchner, etc have the odd game where they post an impressive average. But they wouldn't make much of a dent on the PDC tour. Look at how Hughes and Noppert have fared. They were the 2017 equivalents of Mitchell and Unterbuchner in the BDO.

The standard in the BDO has stayed largely the same the past 5 years or so.

The bunting era was stronger than now, by default it has to be.

Mark Mcgeeney is at the top of the rankings that says it all really.

Noppert has had a good first year, He already picked up a Pro Tour Title. Narrowly missed out on the World Matchplay (Remember he was a few months behind in ranking money) He has qualified for the World Grand Prix, European Championships, Players Championships & World Champs, for the 1st year in the PDC its a might effort considering it's considered tougher then a few years ago. Hughes was a strange one, Played awful at Lakeshite, Q School didnt work out for him and up until recently he was awful on the Challenge Tour. Since September he has won a Challenge Tour and played in the Pro Tour. He is unlikely to qualify for the Worlds or any other event, But i would expect a much stronger showing in his 2nd year.

Noppert will make the PDC top 32.

As for the others (Bar Durrant) It's tough to call, PDC suits some players and its doesnt for others. I didnt think Ian White would have an impact, Bunting has been a disappointment after a good 2014.

So this is why the crowd was shit...………

Chris Watson You have to remember it is a Sunday night and from comments I read earlier they were charging players who already taken part, to come in to support their fellow players.
They're all here!

Should be a curfew to prevent anyone going into Bridlington full stop.
