Wayne Mardle – Hawaii 501 himself is on the line for a long overdue catch-up and he gives us his take on the hottest rumour of the moment – a seniors tour! Could we see Mardle back on the board? The Sky Sports commentator also feels it’s time for a little more set play action.

Peter Wright – It’s been a case of near misses for Snakebite in the majors, last year’s runner-up in Dublin feels he is in good enough shape to add to his solitary major and looks ahead for the all-important final months of the season.

Colin Lloyd – Our two-time major champion is on hand to give us his take on the recent winners on Tour and feels we could be about to see more from Krzysztof Ratajski, and feels the regular season would benefit from a little more variety.

Prediction Time – The team make their predictions for the Grand Slam and there’s only one of the team plumping for the world no 1 and defending champion.

It’s Not Darts But… Our host keeps it simple this week with the question for everyone, including Snakebite and Hawaii 501 – pineapple on pizza, yes or no?

Jamie Hughes – After an impressive debut year Hughes is in honest mood to talk about returning to work to improve his focus on the oche and relish the prospect of a possible shock against MvG in Dublin.
