WDF World Cup Men Teams 1979

For the second WDF World Cup the teams had to travel to the gambling capital of the world Las Vegas, USA. The tournament was played at the Sahara Hotel on November 2 and 3. Sixteen countries took part in the WDF World Cup, which was a great success since the teams had to make this long trip. England, represented by John Lowe, Eric Bristow, Tony Brown and Bill Lennard were the big favourites for the tournament, and some 400 supporters had come with them.

Hong Kong, Jamaica and Northern Ireland make their debut at this second WDF World Cup.

In the team event Wales, Australia, England and host nation USA reached the last four. In the semi-finals the Wales team easily defeated Australia 9-3. The other semi-final promised to be a thriller. Team USA with Conrad Daniels, Len Heard, Jerry Umberger & Nicky Virachkul, encouraged by the 2000-strong crowd, led 6-3 at one point, but the English fought back to 7-7. Tony Brown and Bill Lennard grabbed the last two points for England thus reaching the final. 

In the final against Wales England started strongly. The English quartet Eric Bristow, Tony Brown, Bill Lennard & John Lowe went up 3-0. But the Welsh foursome of David-Rocky Jones, Ceri Morgan, Leighton Rees & Allan Thomas came back strong. They even took the lead, first 6-4 and then 7-5. Still, all four players of the English squad won their next leg thus winning 9-7 and grabbing the first WDF World Cup title of 1979.
