Cram's seat tippeth over Live darts Sky Sports 1, 7pm "WE'RE on the edge of our seats," spluttered a delighted Steve Cram at the conclusion of a curling tussle between Canada and Britain, writes Steve Davies.

First things first. Neither Cram nor sidekick Rhona Martin were on the edge of their seats as confirmed by an unforgiving BBC camera which swung their way just as he said it, revealing the pair in full recline mode and showing no sign of inching forward towards the precipice that the ex-middle distance man had alluded to.

Second, of course, how can anyone be on the edge of their seats watching curling? This match had gone to an extra end (punishment in itself) which involved the usual script, 15 stones being charmingly ushered down the ice rink only for the 16th and final one to count the only point. Wow, never saw that coming!

It was the most predictable conclusion to an ice-based escapade since a couple of beered-up Glaswegians thought it would be a wheeze to try to drive their car along a frozen canal.

Anyway, if Cram wants edge-of-the-seat entertainment he should hotfoot it from Vancouver to Belfast's Odyssey Arena in time for round three of the Premier League arrers.
