Somerset are seriously strong at reserve compared to Swindon. Add to that Doyle showing his team the best lines, this could be very close.

Too many Swindon riders are not performing for this to be close, team decisions made by the promotion now coming back to bite.

Big miss no Covatti for the Rebs, been great for us so far. If Doyley and Jack are on it, this could be close.

A big miss Covatti so that should help the Robins  i really worry about tomorrow i fancy an away win.I thought maybe could they put Mountain at 7 ? he could nick a couple of points Doyle to get 12 plus and Holder to score well.

I can see a very fired up Robins for this match. Robins to win by 6.

In order to even make a match of this Swindon need the top 4 to hit at least 40 odd a big ask  this R/R with no firepower at reserve is a massive no no only opportunity to cover one ride will be Ellis heat 8 , if we run too many meetings like this we will fall out of the top 4 quite easily and i am pretty surprised we are willing to risk this? A stopgap for Bellego is a risk worth taking even if he scored 5 or 6 from number 2? Not inconceivable Adam could lose heat 8 against BWD and we may end up garnering only 1 or 2 from R/R ...
