Nikolaj Busk Jakobsen will be more than just a guest for Rye House for the foreseeable future.

Following three earlier stand-in appearances, the “BP Mitchell” Rockets have sought and received approval from the BSPA Management Committee to use the Dane as a 28 day injury replacement for broken finger victim Stuart Robson. NBJ will therefore make his “official” return to the Rockets in Bank Holiday Monday’s home clash with World Champion Jason Doyle and the Somerset Rebels.

Nikolaj will continue to ride at reserve, effective the new averages, with Edward Kennett – due back from a knee injury – remaining in the main body of the team.

Rye House Co-Promoter Steve Jenson said, “It is unfortunate that Robbo will be out for at least another four weeks, but we are delighted to formally welcome Nikolaj on board.

“He has been a pleasure to deal with these last three matches, and always given his all. There is no doubt that he has already slotted straight into the team.

“With the weather finally looking good, and the World Champion about to land, all I can say is: roll on Monday!”
