Wayne Mardle on the World Championship: Deja vu time for Chizzy

Wayne fancis Dave Chisnall to repeat last year's 3-0 win over Rowby-John Rodriguez
Wayne fancis Dave Chisnall to repeat last year's 3-0 win over Rowby-John Rodriguez

Wednesday was another good night for Wayne Mardle with two winners from two selections, and tonight our man is wagering on a repeat performance from Dave Chisnall, who beat his first round opponent 3-0 this time last year...


"I'm also liking the Yellow Peril's chance of a clean sweep in this match, to win, hit the most 180s and highest finish. Chizzy should dominate this match."

- Back Chisnall to Win 3-0 @ 5/4
- Back Chisnall Most 180s, Highest Checkout & Win Match @ 5/6

I've made no secret of the fact I'm a Chizzy fan. The way Dave just gets on with it, his 180 hitting make him very watchable. If he can control that jerky action of his, who knows what might happen!

Rowby-John has struggled a bit of late. The young buck we saw a couple of years ago play without fear seems to have vanished, and has been replaced with an inhibited fellow.

Interestingly, these two dartists met in the first round last year and Chizzy won by the scoreline I'm predicting this time around too, 3-0.

On his day, Rowby-John is a real handful, I just feel he's not so confident right now and will find the scoring of Chizzy a little too hot to handle.

I see a comfortable win for Dave. The man from Morecambe in Lancashire is one of my tips to reach the final, so let's hope he gets off to a flyer.

I'm also liking the Yellow Peril's chance of a clean sweep in this match, to win, hit the most 180s and highest finish. Chizzy should dominate this match.

Rowby John's form has been spasmodic to say the least, he's averaged in the 80s in five of his last six matches.

Last year he averaged just shy of 90 against Dave and got thwacked to nil.
