Jim Williams - No
Tony O'Shea - I don’t really have any supersititions.
Paul Hogan - Early meal, bit of practice, then relax before getting ready to go to the venue
Darryl Fitton - When I first got onto that famous Lakeside stage I was so nervous my first three darts were as follows (aiming for treble 20 ) big 1
2nd Dart (aiming for 2 ) I hit double 2, 3rd Dart (aiming for bull ) I hit 25. My 1st 3 darts after the referee called "game on" I hit 180. So now my 1st 3 darts when I get called onto a stage I aim for 1 D2 25.
