Peter Wright ended up losing another major final on Sunday night against an imperious Gerwyn Price at the Grand Slam of Darts and it is a final that by his own admission he had no answer in.

Wright said that he was chasing him all the way through and that he thought he was trying for the record average he was playing so well. ‘Snakebite’ though switched to new barrels for the tournament and said that pre-tournament he knew he could get to this point with them and he did so it’s a stepping stone.

“I had no answer,” said Wright.

“Beating Michael and then the way he played there, I thought he was trying for the record [average in a final].

“I was chasing him all the way through, and when he missed I was lucky if I was on 100-and-something! He played fantastic all the way through.”

“I switched to these darts and I said to myself that I think I can get to the final with them, and I got to the final,” he added. “It’s a stepping stone.”
