Joe Cullen landed one of the most bizarre darts you’ll ever see while battling it out with Gerwyn Price during a Premie League Darts event in Liverpool
It was Jonny Clayton saw an impressive return to form last night, beating Cullen (6-4), to secure himself 5 points and £10,000 as the Welshman aims to defend his title following his previous defeat in the opening night to Peter Wright. (6-4)
However, this wasn’t an open and closed case, Joe ‘The Rockstar’ Cullen seemed to put on a show for the Merseyside audience.
One of these jaw dropping moments was the aforementioned incident occurred when taking on Price.
Cullen was able to land two darts within the triple 20 with the last dart claiming it’s place horizontally between the two. But with the dart still touching the single 18, this allowed a score of 138 to be given.
With the game finally ending with a close 6-5 in Cullen’s favour, a result like this was critical in allowing Cullen to take on defending champion Clayton.
Jonny ‘The Ferret’ Clayton was in fine form in the semi-finals, quickly disposing of Micheal Smith (6-3) in the quarter-finals.
This is the STRANGEST way to score a 138 we've ever seen!! 🤯— Sky Sports Darts (@SkySportsDarts) February 10, 2022

Yet, the Welshman did admit that he was unsure if he would be able to achieve the same success in a crucial game against Michael Van Gerwen.
‘ The game against Michael Van Gerwen was hard work, I had to be at my very best to win that one.’
He continued, ‘I’m Premier League champion for a reason and I’ve got off to a good start so long may it continue.’
This was evident as Clayton recovered from being 4-1 down to eventually beat Gerwen 6-4 in an amazing comeback during the first semi-final and pushed him into the final.
Newcomer Cullen was eventually defeated in an impressive 6-4 match which returns Clayton to the top of the table and puts Cullen in third sitting behind Peter Wright.
The ever-changing tide of the league means that everything is still to play heading towards night three in Belfast.
