It was a night so close yet so far at Scunthorpe in the league with the end result 50-40, but had it not been for a blown tyre in Heat 15, 48-42 was set in stone and a point should have been had bt the Boiler Technical Services Diamonds.
 
That aside, it was a good solid performance from Newcastle again with six of the seven guys picking up at least one paid or full win within their score cards, but all eyes were on returnee from injury, Stuart Robson and comeback king Matej Kus to see how they would manage.


"Robbo" was thrust straight into the action in Heat One and rode like he had never been off a bike for so long taking a good second place behind Kyle Howarth, before missing out in his next but bounced back to take a second in his third, finishing off with a win in Heat 11 over the always powerful Jason Garrity and Howarth to redress that Heat One result for a creditable and satisfactory seven point return.

Matej Kus did more that what he'd been brought back to achieve with a good opening hand of eight points and a bonus, taking one paid and one outright win in his record, and always - even his last heat third - ridden with determination and high effort.

He opened with second in Heat Three behind Jake Allen - a rider who only dropped one point to a Diamond all night with his 16+1 from six rides total (Tero being that successful Diamond in Heat Nine as the Finn again completed a superlative night's racing) and then combined with Ashley Morris for a Newcastle 1-5 in Heat Seven over Garrity.

His fine three pointer came in Heat 10 taking Howarth's scalp in another Diamonds' heat advantage as the Czech settled nicely into his new (old) team pits, adding a lot to the value of the team and lightening the prospects as the season rolls on.
