WDF World Cup Men Teams 1981

For this WDF World Cup, most countries had to fly halfway around the world to distant New Zealand. The venue was the Trafalgar Centre in Nelson and the tournament was played on 2 and 3 October. Still 16 countries showed up, which may be called a success on its own. 

Amongst them, some notable countries such as Papua New Guinea and the Philippines, which made their debut, together with Singapore. Among the 64 participants, only one woman participated. Selly Tain, born on the Solomon Islands but playing for Papua New Guinea. She is the first woman to ever play at a WDF World Cup.

In the team event, host nation New Zealand with Gordon Allpress, Dale Frampton, Barry Templeton & Alan Hill surprise in the quarter finals by sending Alan Evans, Wayne Locke, Ceri Morgan & Leighton Rees from Wales home as they beat them 9-7. England, Scotland and Sweden also reach the semi-finals.

In the semi-finals Eric Bristow, Tony Brown, Cliff Lazarenko & John Lowe on behalf of England beat the Swedish team of Bjørn Enqvist, Stefan Lord, Peter Hamberg & Christer Pilblad with 9-3. In the other semi-final, Alistair Forrester, Angus Ross, Rab Smith & Jocky Wilson from Scotland beat New Zealand with the same numbers.

Scotland just can't make it against England in the final and loses 9-7. Alistair Forrester did score the best leg with a 12 darter (180, 140, 140, 41 out) in the final. It is the second time in a row that England has won the team event.
