Six Nations - 22-24 June 2018

Post by ChrisW » Tue Jun 19, 2018 11:34 pm

England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Northern Ireland and the Netherlands will compete in the 6 nations this weekend.

Ladies
Group 1: Ireland, Scotland and Wales
Group 2: Netherlands, England and Northern Ireland

Men
Group 1: Ireland, Netherlands and Northern Ireland
Group 2: Scotland, England and Wales

John Lokken, National team manager of the Dutch team: "The Six Nations Cup is one of the hardest country tournaments to win, partly due to the format of the game and because all countries have their strongest team. Two years ago in Ireland we came no further than third place and last year in Wales we were defeated in the final by the English. This year I think we have an experienced team with Veenstra, Mandigers, Sparidaans, Kleermaker and Landman, but also a team where everyone shows that they are in shape. That is why we have only set one goal this year and that is for the championship in England."

The ladies team is exactly the same as last year. A logical choice, since De Graaf, Zijlstra and Prins dominated the ranking season for the ladies this year. They ended well above the others and dragged in all ranking titles. In addition, they are the three highest ranked players in the BDO Ranking with De Graaf in second place, Prins in sixth place and Zijlstra in place 10.

This year the Dutch teams will play for a good cause. All won prize money from the singles tournament will be handed over to KiKa. "We think it's important that children can exercise carefree and that's why we like to contribute to the destruction of this terrible disease", says Niels de Ruiter, director of the Dutch Darts Association.

The Six Nations is seen as one of the most heavily occupied tournaments in the country circuit, where England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Northern Ireland participate alongside the Netherlands. The Dutch gentlemen managed to win the tournament once. This was in 2013 in our own country. The Dutch ladies have never succeeded so far. The Six Nations Cup has been organized since 2002 whereby the six countries are divided into two groups and will be played in a round robin system (men's 25 legs, ladies 9 legs). This year the tournament will be held from 22 to 24 June in Selsey in England.

You'd have thought that the BBC would have known better, still it's their loss if no-one tunes into the football.

Why do the Irish men and women have one more than the others?
