The Cases Somerset Rebels have completed their line-up for next season, with the return of a former club favourite.

The final piece of the 20th anniversary Cases Somerset Rebels has fallen into place with the return of a former club favourite.

After four seasons away from the Oaktree, Australian Todd Kurtz rejoins the Rebels following spells with Plymouth and Sheffield, attaining a 5.91 average with the latter.

Kurtz made 48 match appearances for the Rebels back in 2014, scoring 316 points and 54 bonuses, a season in which the Rebels finished as league runners-up, beaten by a single point in the play-offs by Edinburgh.

He said: “It has been a while since I have ridden for Somerset, but it is a place I am quite familiar with and really enjoy coming to and I am really looking forward to the challenge.”

Confirmation of Todd as a starter completes the Rebels line-up that will feature Rory Schlein, Chris Harris, Nico Covatti, Todd Kurtz, Dimitri Berge, Anders Rowe and Henry Atkins.
