It was England vs Scotland in the capital and both players looked shaky after a stunning 28-DART leg early in the contest.
Wright raced into an early lead, but Smith roared back to make it 2-2 and the players traded the lead from then on.
But Snakebite held his nerve to break the throw and eventually take the win 7-5.
