LINUS Sundstrom confirmed he was back on his own engines after delivering his best display yet in the skull and crossbones.

The Swedish international made a modest start to the SGB Premiership campaign but his form improved markedly after he borrowed an engine off Pirates number one Brady Kurtz.

Sundstrom had an engine rebuilt ahead of the 46-44 defeat at Wolverhampton at the end of last month, a meeting in which he scored nine paid 10.

And a stunning 11 paid 14 haul against King’s Lynn on Wednesday increased to 39 paid 46 his total for the past four league meetings.

Sundstrom said: “I had my engine rebuilt for Wolverhampton in the last meeting and I used it here again.

“I’m back on my own engines now and it feels good. I will keep working hard.

“It was a good meeting for us. It’s not very often I have a smile on my face but I did tonight.

“We just need to keep building momentum and bring this confidence with us to Somerset next week.”

The 27-year-old last month received an offer from lifelong fan David Smith, who owns Bournemouth Bedding Centre, for funding towards a new engine.

Smith said he would be prepared to stump up around £2,000.

Sundstrom said: “I was chatting with him before the King’s Lynn meeting and I will chat with him again.

“He told me it would happen so I’m very thankful for that and I really appreciate it.”
