Great performance from reserve... The Tigers twin spearhead fail to win a single race between them but the rest of the team get stuck in and lead by 8 points after heat 8 and again with 3 races to go. Our spearhead then concede a 5-1 in heat 13 to reduce the lead to 4. Todd and Broc lose another 2 points in heat 14 and Todd and Kasper are given the task of saving the match against the Scorpions top scorers.

So we manage to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory! We just need to win by 7 or more at Redcar to avoid the wooden spoon. I wonder if Kyle and Charles will be down on power and slow from the gate at Owlerton on Sunday?
