Three seeds fell in the second night of the competition as Scotland, Netherlands and Northern Ireland all progressed to the second round on Saturday.

There was a huge shock in the first match of the evening as seeds Canada were dumped out of the tournament by New Zealand. Canada forced a final leg decider when John Part hit D4, but it wasn’t enough as Warren Parry took out 92 to win.

Seeds Sweden were also eliminated in the first round stage of the competition when Hungary claimed a shock win. Sweden had trouble on the double all evening as Hungary won three legs on the bounce at 2-2 to win the match 5-2.

Hong Kong provided the third shock of the evening’s action as they knocked Wales out of the competition. A 131 checkout from Ting Chi Royden Lam in the sixth leg was a crucial moment in the match as Hong Kong went on to take a 5-3 win.

The Republic of Ireland stopped to rot for the seeds as it were in the fourth match of the evening as they brushed aside Poland. Ireland averaged 81.7 as they raced to a 5-0 whitewash to progress into the second phase of the World Cup.

Thailand played well in their match as they looked to cause another upset, but the power of Northern Ireland led by Brendan Dolan and Micky Mansell was just to strong as they advanced to the second round with a 5-2 win.

Peter Wright was the star of the show with his new darts as he and Gary Anderson booked their places in the next round after a win over Singapore. The pair averaged 92.7 in beating Singapore 5-1.

Michael van Gerwen got off to a flyer when he used the T19 to great effect in the first leg, hitting two of them before hitting D18 to take out a marvellous 150. Netherlands went on to claim a 5-2 win over the USA, getting their World Cup campaign underway with a win.

Finland missed one dart at D20 in a final leg decider, and that proved to be the final darts that they would throw as Devon Peterson of South Africa, the crowd favourite stepped up and hit D10 with his second dart in hand to send South Africa through to the second round.
