“So far, so good.”
That’s the verdict of Ipswich Witches’ young Aussie star Cameron Heeps, as his 2017 season continues on apace
Heeps, 21, has spent most of his years in England racing for just one club, the opportunity to ‘double-up’ having never really come round.
But when Somerset came calling recently to ask him to race for the Rebels in the Premiership – alongside the Witches in the Championship - Heeps was determined to grab the opportunity with both hands.
An impressive start to life with the Rebels with a paid 11 and a paid seven points in two meetings against Rye House Rockets last weekend, have boosted Heeps’ confidence. He wants more.

“So far, so good,” Heeps said.
“This is the opportunity I have always wanted. To race in the top league in England. It just hasn’t happened so far, but it has now and I’m determined to take this chance.

“It started well last week for me with Somerset, although a fall at Rye House left me a bit sore, which hampered me a bit for Ipswich at Scunthorpe on Sunday.
“I think riding for both clubs will benefit both clubs, if you see what I mean.
“You need to ride your bike as much as you can.”
Heeps and the Witches travel to Workington Comets tomorrow night in what has all the makings of a top Championship clash.
Both sides are in good form, both having won recent away meetings, while the Cumbrians have a good home advantage on their large Derwent Park bowl.
“We (the Witches) look to take points wherever we go,” Heeps said.
“At Scunthorpe me and Sedge (Justin Sedgmen) didn’t get the points we wanted, although the team still won.
“Hopefully we can add good back-up to Rory Schlein and Danny King and we can get the win.”
The Witches are next in home action on Thursday, when Newcastle Diamonds travel to Foxhall Stadium.
Workington: C Cook, M Campton, T Proctor, J Sarjeant, T Jorgensen, M Williamson, R Shuttleworth.
Ipswich: D King, C Heeps, J Sedgmen, K Newman, R Schlein, C Mountain, N Greaves.
