SHEFFIELD Tigers have been rocked by Jack Parkinson-Blackburn's decision to take a break from racing.

The talented teenager informed the club of his decision in the aftermath of a zero return in the thrilling cup win over Edinburgh.

Club bosses are disappointed with the decision but understand and will now seek a 28-day guest facility to cover for a rider withholding services.

Co-promoter Damien Bates said: "We are extremely disappointed with this news because we were standing by Jack despite him struggling for us.

"However we understand his desire to take a break and we wish him well, we sincerely hope this isn't the last we see of him at Owlerton.

"In the meantime our search for a replacement begins immediately and we have to use a guest in tonight's league match at Edinburgh which will be Ryan McDonald who we thank at short notice."
