Rob Cross is expecting a tough challenge when it comes to the local qualifiers this weekend at the NZ Darts Masters which begins on Friday.

Cross will meet Warren Parry in the first round who is one of the most well known players on that side but he has singled Cody Harris out for praise.

He said that he doesn’t see why a New Zealand finalist won’t be sought in the next World Series in Hamilton. ‘Voltage’ also spoke about the whole Oceanic leg and said that it’s fantastic being back in New Zealand.

“Everything seems to be getting stronger and the standard is going up, so I don’t see why we can’t see why we won’t have a New Zealand finalist this week,” Cross told Newshub.

“Cody Harris is always dangerous and there is no reason why he can’t go all the way.”

“It’s great to be back,” Cross added.

“I’ve had a great trip during the World Series and it’s fantastic being back in New Zealand.

“When I turned up here last year… I’d never been on such a long flight. I’m much calmer this year and I’m ready to see more of this beautiful place.

“We came in on Sunday and wandered around Auckland. There are some nice people here, great restaurants, and places to go walking and explore.”
