GLASGOW TIGERS are hopeful Australian rider Josh Grajconek will be back in the saddle for this Sunday's meeting with Rye House.
And how the Glasgow side could do with the teenager's return after Sunday's demoralising defeat at home to Berwick Bandits.
Having racked-up a record-breaking win over Newport just a week earlier, the Ashfield men collapsed against their Borders opponents, losing out 42-48.
The contrast in performance of the home men from that just seven days earlier was remarkable, with even the heat leader duo of Shane Parker and James Grieves struggling to impose their usual dominance around the Ashfield circuit.
Now the Tigers management have confirmed that they are scouring Europe for a permanent replacement for Ross Brady, who faces further surgery on his broken wrist, with a view to taking some of the strain from the team who are currently trying to cover for Brady's absence.
With the Tigers in action against Rye House in Hertfordshire this Sunday, the management have some time to try and bring in a replacement rider in time to face title favourites Kings Lynn at Ashfield on July 5.
In the meantime, Glasgow will be represented by aces Parker and Grieves in this Fridays Premier League Pairs Final at Somerset, Parker has previously won the event in Glasgow colours in 2005 and 2006.
Scorers Berwick: James Grieves 13, Shane Parker 10, Rusty Harrison 6, Mitchell Davey 5, Robert Ksiezak 4, Lee Dicken 4
