Ipswich Witches will race Swindon Robins in the Premiership final over two legs next week.

The Wiltshire side easily overcame Wolverhampton Wolves at Blunsdon tonight, winning on aggregate.

It means Ipswich will race Swindon at Foxhall Heath on Monday night, 7.30pm, with the return at Swindon next Thursday night, again 7.30pm.

It's almost two weeks since the Witches booked their final place playoff after defeating Poole in the second leg of a thrilling meeting at Foxhall.

And while the Pirates finished two points clear at the top of the Premiership table over second-placed Swindon, the Robins are a very strong outfit.
