THE Cases Somerset Rebels overcame a 14-point deficit in the second leg of the Premier League Knockout Cup to progress to the next round.

They delivered an emphatic 60-30 win over Workington Comets to reach the quarter-finals after they had wiped out the advantage in the space of five races at the Oaktree Arena.

The Rebels provided 11 of the 15 heat winners, with former Somerset rider Josh Grajczonek scoring half of the Workington total.

Somerset will now face Ipswich, who enjoyed a bye in the first round.
