Richard and Rusty to captain their country
Workington Comets riders Richard Lawson and Rusty Harrison will go head to head in Saturday's 4th Test Match at Derwent Park as captains of their respective national sides.
Richard was named as captain of Team GB last night and his Comets team-mate Rusty was today named as skipper of the Australian side.
Meanwhile, the injury to Scunthorpe's Ashley Birks has led to a change in personnel and riding order for Great Britain on Saturday with Cumbrian racer and ex-Comet Craig Cook coming into the side at number one.
The revised Great Britain line-up is now: 1 Craig Cook, 2 Adam Roynon, 3 Josh Auty, 4 Richie Worrall, 5 Richard Lawson (c), 6 Andrew Tully 7 Kyle Howarth.
The Australian line-up remains unchanged from that announced at the end of last week.
