Classy Cross seals clean sweep Down Under with New South Wales Darts Masters thrashing against Heta

Rob Cross has continued his red hot form by sweeping both tournaments Down Under as the World Series of Darts comes to an end for 2023.

Cross won the New South Wales Darts Masters sweeping aside Damon Heta just as he did to Peter Wright albeit not at the 109 heights that he reached in his semi-final with an 8-1 win.

This with a 91 average and 44.4% on the outer ring and three 180's. But he adds to one in 2018 and now two in 2023, all three have come in the tournaments Down Under.

It will be a huge confidence booster for 'Voltage' going into the back end of the year also silencing the home hopes with the Australian Women winning at the World Cup, but 'The Heat' couldn't deliver this time in a crushing defeat.

Cross raced into an early 3-0 lead with a 94 average and 50% on the doubles. Before Heta missed two darts at doubles to get on the scoreboard and Cross converted to make it 4-0.

Heta's average sat at only around 84 and Cross took advantage again with a 180 and double four. Heta had no answers and going into the break, it seemed to be prolonging the inevitable at 7-0.

A 174 to leave 94 looked to end a crushing whitewash for Cross. He didn't get a shot though and Heta returned looking at 68 to spare his blushes and he got it.

Cross wouldn't let up and despite not getting the whitewash, he hit a 180 and finally got over the line.
