Robins set to name Batchelor

SWINDON Robins will submit their team for the 2013 season tomorrow, and the Advertiser understands it will include Troy Batchelor.
The Elite League champions have been battling with Peterborough all winter to be able to include the newly crowned Australian champion in their side once again, with the Robins wanting a loan deal and the Panthers insisting on a permanent move.
According to an unwritten rule any unsigned riders must be made available for loan on March 1 (tomorrow), and with every other team having already completed their 1-7, there now appears to be nothing stopping the Robins swooping to bring Batchelor back to Blunsdon after months of struggle.
