 5. In third leg, the loser of the original toss will have choice to throw for bull.
Darts bouncing of or falling out of the board shall not be thrown again, and do not count in score.
Should a player touch any dart which is in the dartboard during a throw, that throw shall be deemed to have been completed. (Do not touch the dart, this includes bending it down to show which side of the wire the dart is on.  Scorekeepers are also to refrain from touching darts in the board).
