The “BP Mitchell” Rockets scheduled Knock-Out Cup trip to Swindon has now also fallen foul of the wet weather, meaning that BOTH legs of the tie have been postponed a full day ahead of their planned timing.

The only Rocket to be involved in action this Easter weekend has been Scott Nicholls, who scored 11 points last night in Workington’s Cumberland Classic individual. The Rye House team captain finished just a point shy of a rostrum place in a meeting that was won by Rory Schlein.

The Rockets are due at Somerset on Wednesday in their first SGB Premiership fixture, while the next meeting at Rye House will be on Wednesday, April 11th, as the Rockets take on Leicester – complete with Grand Prix star Martin Vaculik – in what is now their home opener (7.30 start time).
