Wright Admits to Being "So Nervous" Before Oz Win

PeterWright admitted he was “so nervous” before lining up a Brisbane Masters clash with giantkiller Raymond Smith.

Snakebite cruised past Justin Thompson 6-2 last night just a week after winning the Melbourne round of the World Series.

Now the Scot takes on Smith who dumped namesake ‘Bully Boy’ Michael Smith in a shock first round 6-1 thrashing.

Wright averaged 100, hit three 180s and struck over 50 per cent of his attempts at doubles but still wasn’t overly happy with his performance.

He said: “I felt so nervous tonight, I don’t know why but I didn’t feel right all day.

“It’s a new venue, a new stage and a new place and I just didn’t wake up right today.

“I’m still in the tournament and still have a chance, so that’s all that matters.”

His next round opponent Smith comfortably beat the Melbourne Darts Masters runner-up Michael to set up a last eight encounter with Wright.

Aussie Smith said: “For me that’s massive. To be the first Queenslander to walk out on that stage and play as well as I did, I am happy as I can be.

“Michael missed doubles, I got lucky but at the same time I played the darts and put myself in that position. When I got the shot I took it.”

Gary Anderson will play Raymond van Barneveld in the last eight after the Scot secured a scrappy 6-5 win over Damon Heta.

In a repeat of their Melbourne quarter-final clash a week earlier, Anderson was pushed all the way by his Australian opponent but eventually came out on top.

Anderson did lead 3-0 before being pegged back, with Heta getting within one.

A 121 finish gave Anderson a two leg lead once more but a stunning 152 finish saw Heta close the gap again.
