GERWYN Price will get a second bite of the cherry on Sunday when he attempts to join fellow Gwent darts ace Nicky Kenny in the round two of the PDC Home Tour, writes Chris Kirwan.

Two-time Grand Slam winner Price was the victim of a nine-dart leg when edged out by Luke Woodhouse on the second night of the tournament, in which players take part in their own homes and stream videos for fans.

The 35-year-old from Markham, third in the world, has a second chance to make it to the second phase when he plays from his kitchen on Sunday evening.

Price will go up against Cullen, Keegan Brown and Bradley Brooks, who are all also having another crack in the tournament.

NHS worker Keegan Brown was forced into an early exit on night 12 after his internet stopped working just two games in.

The world number 30, who works in a testing laboratory on the Isle of Wight as his day job, lost his opening game against Conan Whitehead before technical issues ensured a premature exit.

Cullen is 16th in the PDC rankings and Brooks is 121.

The prize is a place in the next stage of the tournament, which features 11 nights of action from Tuesday, May 26.

There will be eight groups in the last 32 to whittle the contenders down to a pair of semi-final pools from which the top two will qualify for the championship group.

The winner of the competition, which began in April and has featured 101 PDC Tour card holders, will be crowned on Friday, June 5.

Kenny will hope to make an impression on his new rivals after moving from the BDO.

The 27-year-old from Cwmbran progressed to the next stage of the tournament despite being the lowest ranked player on night five.

Wins against Luke Humphries 5-3 and Joe Murnan 5-2 ensured he had already won the pool before he triumphed against Devon Petersen 5-3.

"I'm happy, on paper I'm the worst player in the group but it proves I can live with the big boys," said Kenny afterwards

"Luke is a big boy and has lost in the quarter-finals of the World Championship twice and he is the best player out of all of us so I'm very pleased."

The Wales international, who had made a promising start to life in the PDC before the coronavirus pandemic.

Kenny reached the last 16 and last 64 of Players Championship events at the Barnsley Metrodome then made the last 16 of the leg in Wigan.

Two-time world champion Gary Anderson has resolved his wifi troubles and will take part in the Home Tour.

He had previously pulled out of the competition, citing connectivity troubles at his home but will join the tournament in the final group of the first stage on Saturday.

Reigning world champion Peter Wright, who was stunned by Carmarthen's Jamie Lewis on the opening night, features on Monday.
