Weekly Dartscast Episode 244: Leonard Gates, Tori Kewish, WDF World Championship Preview

Co-host Alex Moss and guest co-host Matthew Kiernan are back with a new episode ahead of the WDF World Championship.

First, Alex and Matthew start the show with an overall look ahead to the long-awaited first WDF World Championship, and discuss how important this first championship is for the organisation.

Then, Leonard Gates (13:37) calls in before flying over to the UK to play in his first steel tip World Championship next week. The American talks through his early career as a baseball professional, before switching to darts, and his hopes for Lakeside.

Next, Alex and Matthew continue their Lakeside preview by focusing on the men’s draw, discussing whether the bookmakers have it right with Connor Scutt as the 6/1 favourite, and also pick out their ties of the first round.

Then, Tori Kewish (38:28) joins us ahead of playing in her second Women’s World Championship this weekend. The Australian also looks back on her 10 years in the game so far, rising through the ranks in Australia, her World Championship debut at the O2 in 2020, and looks ahead to her first-round clash with close friend Lorraine Hyde.

Finally, Alex and Matthew switch focus to the women’s draw, and assess Mikuru Suzuki’s chances of completing a hat-trick of world title wins, and also highlight the first-round ties they’re most looking forward to.
