Phil Taylor has fuelled the fire ahead of his Premier League clash with Kim Huybrechts at the Brighton Centre on Thursday evening, by claiming that whenever Huybrechts ‘jumps about’; he loses.
‘The Hurricane’ is well-renowned for his over-zealous celebrations, but ahead of their latest showdown, ‘The Power’ appeared to suggest that Kim’s antics are to the detriment of his game. “Kim’s a feisty player and he’s going to do his jumping around, but I’ve noticed that every time he jumps about, he gets beaten,” Taylor quipped.
The pair have been embroiled in an interesting rivalry since they met in the last 16 of the 2015 World Championship. Ahead of that clash, Taylor warned that there would be ‘trouble’ if the Belgian started jumping around, but the 16-time world champion survived a match dart to prevail 4-3 in a fiery affair.
The pair’s last meeting came in round-three of the 2017 World Championship. Ahead of the contest, Huybrechts insisted that he wasn’t deterred by Taylor’s criticism and reaffirmed that he would continue to show emotion on stage.

Phil Taylor will be vying for a third consecutive World Series title as the Sydney Darts Masters gets underway this Thursday. Taylor will compete alongside Michael van Gerwen, Gary Anderson, Peter Wright, James Wade, Adrian Lewis, Raymond van Barneveld and Stephen Bunting in the Australian city.
They will also be up against 8 Oceanic representatives; two of whom include Simon Whitlock and Paul Nicholson. Josh’s Dartistry assesses the favourite for the title, potential outside bets, as well as men under huge pressure to perform.
Raymond van Barneveld moved one step closer to securing a play-off place at the O2 Arena by beating both Gary Anderson and Adrian Lewis in Birmingham. Van Barneveld came from 4-0 down against the World Champion, winning 7 out of the last 8 legs to clinch victory, whilst also clinically defeating Lewis 7-2 in the evening’s finale. Nevertheless, Raymond’s win over Anderson was embroiled in controversy, after Anderson alleged that Barney encroached into the exclusion zone when retrieving his darts, with the Scot set to throw for a point.
Michael van Gerwen won his fourth successive UK Open Qualifier, after surviving TEN match darts against his arch-nemesis Jelle Klaasen in today’s final. Klaasen led 5-2, but simply could not close out the match, missing eight darts to secure victory in leg 10.
Michael van Gerwen is hoping to maintain his blistering form in 2015 as he takes on World Champion Gary Anderson at the Echo Arena in Liverpool. Stephen Bunting is aiming to record his first victory of the campaign on home turf as he tussles with Phil Taylor, whilst Peter Wright and Raymond van Barneveld face off in a battle that could have major repercussions for their respective seasons.
