James ended Phil Taylor’s 8 year unbeaten run at the Winter Gardens by dumping out the defending champion to book his place in the World Matchplay final. Taylor started the better of the two and broke james throw to win the first session 3-2,  James came back after the break and broke the Taylor throw to get back on track and win the second session 3-2. Taylor then broke James throw again to lead the machine 7-5 before james hit a purple patch and won 5 legs on the spin to shock the power, the pair then traded legs before the machine produced a superb 12 dart leg to break Taylor again to lead 13-10. From there James found his best darts and found himself in a 16-12 lead, needed one more leg James missed 8 match darts and let the power off the hook but started the next leg on his own 140 174 to close out the match and book his place in tomorrow’s final where he will play either Michael Van Gerwen or Peter Wright.

 

James averaged 97.85 but it was his doubling   that stood out tonight taking out big shots at key times to hurt Taylor. After James thanked the Winter Gardens for their amazing support  and for everyone  kind on social  media, you can follow James on Twitter here @JamesWade180 and we will see you all tomorrow …..#TeamWade

 

Dubai J Wade

 

James was back to his very best best this weekend when he won his second Pro Tour of 2015 at Wigan this weekend, the machine looked in great touch when he only dropped 1 leg in the opening 2 games when he beat Steve Douglas and Dirk Van Duijvenbode. He then went on to beat Dave Ladley 6-5 in the board final, the left hander then beat Vincent van der Voort 6-3 in the last 16 to set up a quarter final clash with Ian White. James won this 6-4 and would now meet the World Youth Champion Keegan Brown in the semi finals, James made light work of the youngster winning 6-1 in quick time to set up a final with the Belgian ace Kim Huybrechts, James found himself 5-3 behind but the king of comebacks did it again by winning the last 3 legs to win Pro Tour 13.

James moved into the playoff places after a commanding win over Peter Wright in an electric 3 arena in Dublin, James started well and soon broke the Wright throw and moved  into a 3-1 lead hitting a brilliant 124 finish on the way,the pair then both held throw before the machine reeled of the last 3 legs to round off a 7-3 win.

The score line did James leg difference the world of good as he leapfrogged Phil Taylor, as we now head into the business end where the players will play 2 games a night ever leg could make the difference in the closed Premier League we have had in years.

After James said thanked the loudest crowd he’d played in front  for their  unreal support , James will be back in action next week at Judgement Night in Manchester where he will face the world number 1 Michael Van Gerwen
