Meeting Result - Warriors 48 v Kent 42 (NT)


The Warriors won an exciting meeting against the Kent Kings in a dramatic night both on and off the track. Warriors win means that their hopes of taking the National Trophy remain alive and to achieve that success they must go to Kent on Monday and win by seven points or more. Any other result hands the Trophy to the Kings.

Fans would have got an inkling that things were happening behind the scenes when Warriors number one rider Georgie Wood did not appear for the pre-match introductions. That was because he was being whisked to Smallbrook from Ryde Hover Terminal having missed the car ferry to the Island. More of that later, but suffice to say he made it the track with just enough time to pull on his race suit and hop on one of Chad Wirtzfeld’s bikes and remarkably blasted away to win heat one in a time just 0.1 of a second slower than his best time whilst mounted on his own equipment.<
