Tony David is rarity in every scene of the word. He has a rare condition, a bleeding disorder called Haemophilia. He then copped tainted blood as a kid. But just like his nickname in the darts world the ‘deadly boomerang’ he made the most astonishing comeback and is the only Australian to win a world darts championship. But the comebacks don’t stop there, after requiring three liver transplants to stay alive due to the tainted blood he received, Tony is now speaking up about the criminal mistreatment of Australian infected blood victims and their families and is interviewed by Charles MacKenzie.
