Peter Kildemand inspired champions Swindon Robins to a comprehensive 54-38 win over league leaders Wolverhampton Wolves.
The Robins opened with three successive 5-1 maximums and they never looked back as they dominated proceedings at the Abbey Stadium.
Result and scorers:
Peter Kildemand 15, Troy Batchelor 11+1, Jason Doyle 8+1, Ashley Birks 8, Nick Morris 6+1, Edward Kennett 4+2, Kyle Howarth 2+1
Tai Woffinden 12, Adam Skornicki 9+1, Ludvig Lindgren 6+4, Jacob Thorssell 5+1, Ricky Wells 4, Scott Nicholls 2, Ty Proctor R/R
Troy Batchelor also hit double figures as Swindon took maximum points.
Team boss Alun Rossiter was delighted with the performance and said: "Peter Kildemand was absolutely sensational for us, and I think that was a little reminder to the Danish team manager after he was overlooked for the World Cup."
Wolves' Great Britain star Tai Woffinden offered some resistance with 12 points, but it was not enough to trouble the Robins.
Team boss Peter Adams said: He said: "It was a typical case of a small-track club coming to a big track and struggling to get the set-ups right to start with.
"Before we knew it we were twelve points down, and you can't afford to start slowly at places like Swindon.
"It was a disappointing result, but we'll be hoping it's a very different story when they come to Monmore a week on Monday."
