888.com PREMIER LEAGUE DARTS STARS ^TAKE ONE FOR THE TEAM^
ADRIAN LEWIS was forced to face the right foot of Phil Taylor ahead of their clash in the 888.com Premier League Darts Play-Offs, as he took part in the 888.com Team Challenge Forfeit.
World Champion Lewis and his team-mates representing 888casino - James Wade, Simon Whitlock and Mark Webster - lost the 888.com Premier League Darts Team Challenge, which has been running alongside the main event over the past 14 weeks.
To celebrate 888.com^s title sponsorship of Premier League Darts, the online gaming entertainment brand pitched Team Blue (888poker.com) against Team Green (888casino.com) throughout the tournament. The eight players have been awarded two points for a victory and one point for a draw.
The Soccer AM ^Take One For The Team^ challenge was picked by darts fans following an online vote at www.888.com and at www.pdc.tv, with thousands of fans voting online and deciding that pain was the name of the game for the losers!
The four losers positioned their rear ends through the infamous Soccer AM ^Take One For The Team^ prop, and invited Phil Taylor and his 888poker team of winners - Raymond van Barneveld, Gary Anderson and Terry Jenkins - to take aim with a football from ten yards!
To watch the ^Take One For The Team^ forfeit, fans should tune in to watch Soccer AM on Saturday May 21, when the action from outside the Wembley Arena will be exclusively screened.
Team Blue completed a runaway win following the success of Taylor, van Barneveld and Anderson - the top three players in the 888.com Premier League Darts table who contributed 61 out of 69 points. That total proved far greater than the 43 points which the Team Green players could manage from the 14-week regular season.
