AUSTRALIA OUT TO RUSSIA

Russia put an end to Australia's bid at the 2017 World Cup of Darts in Germany yesterday. Australia need to come through the doubles to knock out Russia. However Boris Koltsov and Aleksandr Oreshkin were near-flawless in the two-on-two format as a disappointing Whitlock and Anderson could not match the power of Russia

Singles One: Kyle Anderson 2-4 Aleksandr Oreshkin
Singles Two: Simon Whitlock 4-1 Boris Koltsov
Doubles: Anderson/Whitlock 0-4 Oreshkin/Koltsov
Final Result: Australia 1-2 Russia

Russia will now meet Wales in the last eight after Webster and Price overcame the Republic of Ireland. The Welsh won both singles meetings, with Webster needing to force a decider against William O'Connor
