Peter Wright says sorry to Chris Dobey after remarkable interview: "It wasn't meant to be a dig at him personally"

Peter Wright has apologized to Chris Dobey after 'Snakebite' gave a remarkable interview Saturday afternoon following his victory in the second round of the Masters.

The Scot wound up about the fact that people thought his invitation to the Premier League Darts was unjustified. Among others, darts analyst Chris Mason had spoken out about it, with Mason supposedly stating that he thought Dobey was a better choice.

"It was to shut Chris Mason up saying Chris Dobey should be in the Premier League. What's he won? He won a Masters, a Mickey Mouse tournament. It's all he's won. Has he won a European Championship? Has he won a major? A proper major, no he hasn't," said Wright to Online Darts.

"Yes he was a better player last year, but so what. I won two World titles, two World Cups, two European Championships and a Matchplay."

Wright now regrets that statement. ''I would like to apologise to Chris Dobey, it wasn't meant to be a dig at him personally, it was about being picked for the premiere league and the criticism about being (picked) over Chris Dobey. Not that I know if it was a choice between us or not,'' Wright wrote on X.
