The return of Corey Cadby to the PDC Tour raises the mouth-watering prospect of the enigmatic Australian sharing the stage with Gerwyn Price again.
‘The King’, once dubbed a future world champion by fans, put a difficult few years behind him by winning day two of the Final Stage of Q-School in Germany, meaning he will be back on the PDC circuit for the first time in three years.
Having pieced his life back together following divorce, a battle with alcohol and a run-in with the law, the 27-year-old cannot wait to mix it with the best players in the sport again, including former world champion Price.

The pair played against each other on several occasions during Cadby’s previous stint on the Tour, with their meeting at the World Series of Darts Finals in 2017 being particularly spicy.
Speaking ahead of the second round clash, Cadby predicted the match would be “explosive” and “intense” with both players known for exuberant celebrations on stage.
And that proved to be the case with both players giving it large and clearly looking to get under the skin of the other. On commentary, before the match even started, Chris Mason quipped: “I’m not sure if we need an oche or an octagon.
Cadby made a bright start to the first-to-six-legs affair, racing into a 2-0 lead and he wasn’t afraid to let Price know about it.
Interestingly in light of recent events, Price was the fans’ favourite while Cadby was targeted by sections of the crowd. At one point, one member of the audience could clearly be heard calling the Aussie a w*****.

After Price pulled a leg back to reduce the deficit to 2-1, Price put his hand over his lips in Cadby’s direction. The Iceman then carried on that momentum and marked key moments by celebrating in his opponent’s direction.
Price eventually went on to win the match 6-5 with the players sharing the briefest of handshakes. As the Welshman celebrated on stage, Cadly looked at the Welshman with utter disdain.
