Swindon Robins 53 Eastbourne 39

The Robins romped to a conclusive 14-point success in the 'Battle of the Birds', as they again took over top spot in the Elite League standings, displacing Poole.
 
Meanwhile, new signing Manuel Hauzinger enjoyed a dream debut in winning his first ride in Swindon colours and ending the evening with a terrific 8 points to his name.

For the Eagles, Swindon asset Lee Richardson made an excellent return to his old stamping ground to notch 14 points, his tally enhanced by a second place finish from a tactical ride in heat seven.

The British No. 1, Nicholls, supplied top-end support to‘Rico’ and, although he only took the chequered flag in one race, the Ipswich-born rider carded 10+2 points.

However, Eastbourne’s top duo lacked the necessary backing from their team-mates to have seriously challenged the Robins and the East Sussex side will have been generally disappointed with their overall showing.
