Great Britain's rowers will compete in their first major event since the London Olympics when the first World Cup of the season begins in Sydney tomorrow.

Britain have selected an experimental squad with Pete Reed, Andy Triggs Hodge and Alex Gregory, who won gold in the men's four in London, all moving into the men's eight.

"Honestly, we don't know what stage we're at compared to our rivals," said Gregory. "We're probably not as fit as we'd normally be before a competition as we had a break after the Games. But saying that, we're all raring to get racing again, especially after such a strong Olympics so I think it will be a good start."
