WDF World Cup Men Pairs 1979

For the second WDF World Cup the teams had to travel to the gambling capital of the world Las Vegas, USA. The tournament was played at the Sahara Hotel on November 2 and 3. Sixteen countries took part in the World Cup, which was a great success since the teams had to make this long trip. England, represented by John Lowe, Eric Bristow, Tony Brown and Bill Lennard were the big favourites for the tournament, and some 400 supporters had come with them.

In the pairs event we saw the top two darts nations Wales and England lead the show with both their duos reaching the semi-finals. The winners of the first World Cup in pairs, Lowe & Bristow won fairly easily against the pair from Wales; David "Rocky" Jones & Alan Thomas. In the second semi-final Tony Brown and Bill Lennard had it a lot harder with Leighton Rees and Ceri Morgan. Still they won 4-2. In the all-England final, which looked a bit like an exhibition match, Lowe & Bristow would win easily with a 4-1 score line and extend their title.

Venue: United States Sahara Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada From: Friday 02 November 1979 Till: Saturday 03 November 1979
