Jason Doyle says a broken jaw won't stop him from riding for Somerset Rebels against Sheffield Tigers on Friday night.

The Rebels skipper suffered the jaw injury in a fall while racing in Poland on Sunday.

It was feared the Aussie would miss Somerset's season run-in as the team attempts to cement their position in the end-of-season Premier League Play-offs, but he has confirmed today he will be ready to race at the Oaktree Arena.

"Doyley told us that it's not his arms or legs that were injured, and he is able to put his helmet on, so there's nothing to stop him riding come Friday night," Rebels promoter Debbie Hancock told the official Somerset Rebels website.

"While we could have used a guest replacement, there is nothing quite the same as your own rider out there, especially when it is someone like Doyley, who has been superb for us all year."
