ROWING: Pete Reed gets some new team-mates in the Team GB Men's Eight

Wilts and Gloucestershire Standard: Pete Reed Pete Reed

TEAM GB'S new-look Men's Eight will warm up for next week's third and final stage of the World Rowing Cup in Lucerne by contesting the Grand Challenge Cup at the Henley Royal Regatta on Sunday.

The Men's Eight earned a silver medal in the last round of the World Cup in France but chief coach Jurgen Grobler has decided to ring the changes again by bringing in four new faces.

Paul Bennett and Matt Gotrel switch from the Men's Pair, while Tom Ransley comes in from the second string Men's Four following an injury lay-off and Constantine Louloudis emerges from team trials since finishing his university studies for this year.

Ever-present, however, is the dual Olympic champion Pete Reed, the former Cirencester Deer Park pupil who will be 33 later this month.
