What Phil Taylor actually said to Wayne Mardle after Hawaii 501 stepped on his toes at the world championship

Phil Taylor is an icon of darts. In every discussion of the greatest player of all time The Power is always in contention. The 16 times champion of the world is by far the most decorated person in the game and possibly the most decorated English sportsman of all time

One of the reasons Phil Taylor is the best is he has a unique skill with mind games and beating his opponent before they have even thrown a dart – this means that his opponents have to raise their game when they come across him in any match and be prepared for the master at work.

Wayne Mardle is one of a few men who has beaten Phil Taylor on the main stage and famously stepped on the toes of The Power on stage – causing Taylor to say some words to Hawaii 501 that were not picked up on the microphone. During an interview with Gerwyn Price and Daryl Gurney, Wayne popped in to join the chat and Superchin took the opportunity to ask exactly what was said in that moment.

‘I stepped back and he said something… it was a noise, it was kind of a noise and I said ‘whats that?’ he just kind of looked at me and he went ‘nothing’ – it was the nothing that was, kind of like, has he copped it? He’s copped. Then I kind of shit myself so I backed down!’

From the moment of getting under skin if the master himself Wayne Mardle fully admits he lost his bottle and even states: ‘I am only going to get a hiding again anyway…so I backed down like a little kid’.

Its tales like this that make Wayne Mardle one of the most beloved men in darts – honest, self-depreciating and hilarious.
