It's official, the Great Britain rowing selectors have shifted their men's pair into a four for this season, avoiding a clash with New Zealand's world champion pair of Eric Murray and Hamish Bond.

Pete Reed and Andy Triggs Hodge have move into the four, after being dominated by Murray and Bond for the last 3 years, losing to them 14 times.

Reed and Andy Triggs Hodge were part of the four that won gold in Beijing but have since been competing as a pair... however they now return to their world champion four.

The rowing world cup season starts later this month.
