Barney faces Harris at NZ Darts Masters

The draw for this weekend’s New Zealand Darts Masters in Hamilton pits legend Raymond van Barneveld against local favourite Cody Harris.

Barney, a former finalist on two occasions playing in his final tournament down under, faces Harris in what is undoubtedly the highlight of Friday’s schedule.

Barney’s compatriot Michael van Gerwen, the winner in Melbourne last week, starts against former champion Kyle Anderson, while top seed Peter Wright begins his campaign against the surprise Brisbane champion Damon Heta.

The remainder of the draw sees Gary Anderson take on New Zealand World Cup representative Haupai Puha and Brisbane runner-up Rob Cross face Warren Parry. James Wade faces Craig Caldwell, Simon Whitlock takes on Ben Robb while Daryl Gurney, a finalist last week in Melbourne, plays David Platt.
