The Darting equivalent of Rugby’s six nations cup took place over the last weekend in Holland and for darts fans it was made all the better by the brilliant HD live streaming provided by the ndb of the entire event.
The six man squad, Jan Dekker, Wesley Harms, Rick Hostra, Dennis Kloese, Remco Van Eijden and Benito van de Pas made history by winning the tournament for the Netherlands and being on home ground made the win mean so much more.
The team coach Dennis van Onselen could only play five men per match and with two debutantes playing well but sporadically he had to make choices, clearly the right ones as the team showed great resilience and composure against Scotland and England to bring about the victory especially against a very strong English team in the final. The final result was 13.9, using a round robin format which makes for very interesting play.
We must not forget the Ladies who lost in the final to Wales after beating England in the semis.
