Clinical Cross hits 109 average in Wright-wash win, set to face Heta in New South Wales Darts Masters Final

The final is confirmed at the New South Wales Darts Masters with Rob Cross obliterating Peter Wright in an incredible whitewash win to reach back-to-back World Series of Darts Finals.

Cross won last week at the New Zealand Darts Masters which was a third triumph on the World Series, but it could soon be a clean sweep for 'Voltage'.

He hit a 109 average in the process with two 180's and most importantly 7/11 on the outer ring with Wright missing all five chances to get on the scoreboard.

Kicking off as he meant to go on, he hit a 75 checkout to go 1-0 up before hitting his first of two 11 darters at pivotal moments. The first being to go 3-0 up with a 94 checkout with Wright waiting on a makeable finish.

He broke again on double 10 with Wright missing four darts and it was soon 5-0 and he concluded it an 11-darter again to put the icing on the cake.

He may be up against it in the final from the crowd point of view as he will face Damon Heta who famously won in Brisbane to kick start his PDC career.

Since then, he has become one of the most consistent players in the world and returning home, he could add another World Series crown to come full circle.

He edged past Dimitri van den Bergh 7-6 holding his nerve against his housemate. Van den Bergh led throughout but a costly error from him allowed Heta to make it 5-4 and Heta led from there going 6-5 up. He was one away but a decider was forced and the crowd went into raptures as he got over the line.
