Darts star slams opponent for ‘stinking stage out’ with farts after blowing 3-0 lead

There was drama in the Modus Super Series during the week, with the match between Darren Webster and Ron Meulenkamp hitting headlines for reasons which few will have predicted.

Darren Webster had an up-and-down day at the Modus Super Series, but ended the night by hitting out with allegations about opponent Ron Meulenkamp’s hygeine.

Webster, 55, suffered a first-round exit from the World Championships against Niels Zonneveld in December. He has now returned to the Super Series competition, reaching the weekly final back in January.

The veteran won his first game of the evening against Andy Boulton before losing to Reece Colley, but then opened up a 3-0 lead against Meulenkamp. The Dutch pro rallied, though, eventually claiming a narrow win.

Webster clearly wasn’t a happy man after the 4-3 defeat. It wasn’t just the scoreline that left him frustrated, though, as he would explain on Facebook.

“Well when you play a guy who farts and stinks the stage out and denies it then kick you when your playing the stall (sic) every throw because they are s*** good luck for the future but I’m not interested rant over,” Webster wrote in a Facebook post shared elsewhere. When pushed on Meulenkamp’s alleged slow play, Webster added “he was k*** end of”.

Webster was unable to rally for his third game of the evening, against Scott Taylor. He fell to a comprehensive 4-0 loss against Taylor, who ended the evening with three wins from four.

There’s a chance for Webster to restore some pride on Friday, with four more group games to go against the men he played earlier in the week. However, a path to the weekend’s final may be a bridge too far for a man who has twice made the quarter-finals of the World Championships during his career – first in 2007 and then for a second time more than a decade later.

It was Taylor who came out on top in the previous week’s final. The 32-year-old came through a tight semi-final against David Evans before cruising to a 4-0 win over John O’Shea to claim the weekly honour.

Others to take part in this season’s Modus Super Series include Luke Littler. However, the World Championship finalist hasn’t been involved of late after earning a spot in Premier League Darts.

Littler was left frustrated in the latest Premier League event in Glasgow, having reached the final in week two. This time the teenager suffered a quarter-final exit, going down 6-5 against Gerwyn Price at the Hydro.

The youngster was visibly frustrated after spurning a chance to win the deciding leg against his opponent. Price was unable to turn the quarter-final success into a weekly win, though, losing to Luke Humphries in the semis before Humpries himself lost to Michael van Gerwen in the final.
