Watch NOW: Can Matt Hauser bounce back after SLT Malibu bike woe?

Matt Hauser has endured more than his fair share of bad luck during this year's Super League Triathlon Championship Series

Matt Hauser has battled adversity right from the start of the Super League Triathlon Championship Series.

Out of luck

He was incorrectly penalised for a false start in the very first swim in London, with Eagles manager Tim Don saying mid-race that his outright hopes were in danger of going up in smoke.

But Hauser fought back superbly to take a fantastic second place.

Roll on to Munich and the Aussie went one better as he powered clear on the final run to break the tape first.

That gave him a narrow lead at the top of the standings from New Zealand’s Hayden Wilde and we looked set for a classic duel between the pair.

But this crash led to his early elimination in Malibu and now he has it all to do – but stranger things have happened in Super League so be sure to tune into round four from Toulouse on Sunday.
