Josh G Returns - BUT for one night only!

This Saturday's home league meeting against Plymouth sees the return of several former Comets, including last year's number one Josh Grajczonek.
Due to a clash of dates with the newly-introduced Danish Championship quarterfinal the Comets will be missing their three Danes - Kenneth Hansen, Nicki Barrett and their skipper Rene Bach.
But, with Aussie Rusty Harrison on the injured list for several weeks it has meant the Comets calling on three guests in order to track a team to take on the Devils - who also have their Dane, Morten Risager, missing from the fixture for the same reason as the Comets trio.
To cover for the absentees the Comets will use the rider replacement facility and three guests - last year's number one Comet Josh Grajczonek, who is back with Somerset for 2015, Edinburgh's Justin Sedgmen, and another former Comet, Simon Nielsen, who replaces Nicki Barrett at reserve; with Nielsen having declined the opportunity to take part in the Danish Championship rounds.
For both Grajczonek and Sedgmen the Comets have made use of the rule change introduced at the last AGM whereby home teams can call on a guest up to an average of 5% higher than the missing rider to partly compensate for the lack of home advantage in such situations. Meanwhile, Rider Replacement will operate at number one for Kenneth Hansen.
Additionally, on a night where there are as many former Comets as current Comets on the track, the Devils feature another former Comet, Ashley Morris, in one of their reserve berths!
