BRADY Kurtz produced a near-perfect performance for Australia to help end Great Britain’s World Under-21 Cup dream on Saturday.

Poole Pirates charger Kurtz, 19, racked up four straight heat wins and a third place as the Aussies finished a point behind hosts Denmark at Holsted.

Kurtz boasted the same impressive record as Belle Vue’s Max Fricke with Jack Holder, brother of Pirates number one Chris, plundering seven despite an exclusion.

King’s Lynn’s Robert Lambert scored an impressive 18 for Team GB, who were denied the services of Poole’s Adam Ellis because of a broken collarbone, but they finished eight behind the Aussies.

Poland and Germany qualified from the other semi-final with the decider set to be contested in Norrkoping, Sweden, on Saturday, August 20.

Elsewhere, Holder senior scored eight paid 10 in the third and final round of the best pairs in Ostrow, Poland.

Team-mate Greg Hancock weighed in with 11 but it was not enough to prevent Bartosz Zmarzlik, Piotr Pawlicki and Tobias Musielak taking the overall prize.

In the Premier League, Kyle Newman endured a tough evening with Plymouth Devils, scoring four paid five in his side’s 55-37 defeat at Workington Comets.
