SOMERSET boss Garry May has no fears over new recruit Jack Holder's fitness for the start of the British season.

Holder, who joins the Rebels from parent club Poole, for the 2018 campaign suffered a broken collarbone when he crashed during a challenge meeting at Cowra, New South Wales earlier this month.

After crashing in heat four he was forced to withdraw from the Team GM Australia side that went on to beat Woody Woodpeckers, but he underwent surgery yesterday to pin the bone.

Rebels' co-promoter May said "I understand everything went fine with the operation and there is sufficient time between now and the start of the season for Jack to recover fully. He himself is certain he will be ready to at last start his Rebels career."

The Rebels first meeting will be on Monday 26th March when they visit Leicester in a challenge match. Two days later they hold their Press and Practice Day before facing Poole on March 30th (Good Friday) in the KO Cup.
