Gerwyn Price marked his Champions League debut with a commanding 10-5 performance over Rob Cross in the second game of the opening session. Price averaged well but faltered a few times on his doubles and felt the match looked a lot closer than what it was.
“I’m happy with the win. I think if I took my chances the game could’ve finished 10-2. I think the scoreline flattered Rob a bit.
“At the first break, I’m 6-4 up and probably should’ve been at least 7-3. I missed a lot of doubles thought but I scored pretty well.”
Walking off the stage with an average of 99.3 on his debut but just missing doubles is a good indicator of where The Iceman’s game is at the moment and
“I always score pretty well. If I falter on the doubles that’s where I give people chances. I scored a lot better than what I usually do today so I’m happy. ”
PRICE WINS IT!

The Welshman teased the crowd for a brief moment after scoring a perfect five darts but slipped on the sixth, posting a wry smile to the crowd. It’s Peter Wright up next for Price and he’s hoping he can keep up the momentum.
“It’s nice to get a win under my belt and get some pressure off my back. I still want to win tonight but it’s not as much as it could be. It’s back to the room now and prepare for Peter and hopefully, I can be two from two at the end of the day.”
