England's three rebels have ended their boycott of the Ashes Test series. Skipper Gary Havelock and his two Bradford team-mates, Joe Screen and Mark Loram, after peace talks have agreed to ride for the Lions in the second Sportslines Test against Australia at Swindon on Sunday. The trio had refused to ride for their country as long as John Louis stayed in charge as team manager, claiming he had shown favouritism towards his own club, Ipswich, and his son, Chris Louis. Louis will stay in charge at least until his current contract finishes at the end of the year but a review of the situation has been promised by Terry Russell, the British Speedway Promoters' Association chairman.

WEDNESDAY'S LATE RESULTS: Elite League: Coventry 60 Wolverhampton 30. Premier League: Hull 55 Berwick 32.
