Joe Cullen aims dig at Jonny Clayton and Jose de Sousa in Speed Darts challenge

Jonny Clayton is dominating the Premier League this year and looks well-placed to defend the crown he won for the first time in 2021.

Along with Michael van Gerwen, he is the game’s most in-form player at present. However, you possibly wouldn’t want him on your side for a darts quiz – judging by his hilarious performance in Speed Darts challenge.

Players are asked a series of questions on a particular subject, with each correct answer reducing their starting total when they try to check out in the quickest time possible. After spinning a wheel of fortune, which included topics like general knowledge, TV and film and sport, Clayton landed on Premier League darts – a subject he should know all about, right? Seemingly not.

The Ferret was asked a series of questions on the subject, including what was the score in his own final victory over Jose de Sousa 12 months ago. However, Clayton was left completely flummoxed, to the amusement of watching fellow players Michael Smith, Gerwyn Price and Joe Cullen, with the latter chirping: “Neither of them can count!”

Still floundering, Clayton took a stab in the dark. “I genuinely don’t know. 11-7? I don’t know,” he said. The actual answer was 11-5 in Clayton’s favour.

He was then asked how many Premier League matches Phil Taylor won in a row before his incredible streak was broken by James Wade – 24, 34, or 44?

Clayton said: “I’m going to go down the middle, 24?” which sparked more laughter from the assembled players and a look of disbelief from the host. The actual answer was 44.

The Welshman was asked further questions, not getting a single one right before moving on to the actual darts element of the challenge. Having to start on 501, Clayton eventually reached zero in 1:31.02, checking out impressively on 90. However, he still finished 12 seconds off Welshman Price, with Cullen and Smith next up.

Clayton continued his excellent Premier League form on Thursday, becoming the first player to officially book his place in the play-offs in Berlin by winning night 13 in Glasgow.
