    With Flint & MacDonald joining Newcastle, that makes it even less clear who is going to ride for the Devils.

    I feel like it’s another rider who’s getting on because of his motocross background rather than instant ability on a speedway bike.

    Chattin’s local ish though. Possibly the worst reserves in the league but tbf we’re all making assumptions about Woodward. It’s a decent top 5 though so should ease the pressure on the reserves.

    KENT ROYALS 2020

    More second teams but less stand alone teams which Rye House would be.

    Newcastle Gems NT 2020

    It says 6 or 7 home meetings. So are they running 3 or 4 challenge meetings to supplement the NT?

    Newcastle Gems NT 2020

    Swindon & Leicester were also allowed to pick riders of other teams upto the normal points limit. They got little criticism as they didn’t build ‘super teams’ whereas Cradley cherry picked all the best riders.

    Newcastle Gems NT 2020

    Sounds a good idea to me. I’ll try to make it up when the Warriors are there.

    Made it clear how?

    Wolverhampton 2020

    So Masters it is then. That leaves you quite a bit under the points limit so if you wanted 6 of the 7 back, why not sign a stronger rider than Nicol?

    Reading blocked from Entering NDL

    They’ve shut this idea down because the BSPA want to shut down the wholeness league! Their idea is clearly a 2 tier concept with a genuine training league like the MDL so why would they effectively let Reading step up from the MDL to the NL when they want to shut down the NL anyway?! The name thing is all a cover ploy to stop a new team entering a league that they don’t want to exist.

    Leicester NDL 2020

    It’s 8% but I’m not sure whether they get that only once or per season. But you have to be injured and not just choosing to take a season out.

    Leicester NDL 2020

    The only way he could get an average discount is if he missed the whole previous campaign through injury, which obviously he didn’t.
  14. Islander15

    Leicester NDL 2020

    Yes so if Hume signed, it’d be 7.02 for 2 more riders.

    IOW 2020

    Warriors complete with Tom Woolley. A stronger team this year! Morley is a stand out rider in the league and can hold his own anywhere. Campos & Woolley are a dependable middle order and there’s average improvement definitely in Campos. Woolley, I think, will improve slightly with a stable home base and he’s tasted second tier racing now. Hopefully Coles fares a bit better than his last Smallbrook spell but he’s improved as a rider since and also has second tier experience now. Those 3 aren’t big names as 2nd & 3rd heat leaders, unlike BV, but there’s strength in depth and none on a downward trend. But I believe the real strength is at the bottom. Wirtzfeld & King have both had a season now and impressed at times last year and should again add 1-2pts to their averages. Leek is a new recruit but was having a great season last year until injury and should be one of the best 3.00 riders and could add 2pts himself. Any bad spell by any of the 3 will drop them to reserve to reignite their season with no worries over who steps up to number 2. More than happy. I can see a play-off campaign coming, a close call between the Warriors & Mildenhall for the NT, a decent KOC effort, a strong NL Fours run and not forgetting hosting the NL Pairs!

    KENT ROYALS 2020

    That was announced via the official channels last week, so no secret.

    Leicester NDL 2020

    We’ve seen risks taken on ex-motocross and they pay off and I think that’s what we’re seeing here. Rather than looking at who’s the best in the MDL and signing them up.
  18. Islander15

    IOW 2020

    Very good around Smallbrook and on a lowish average due to his poor stint at Plymouth. He’s a nice team man and will help out the younger guys whilst being a useful third heat leader.
  19. Islander15

    Armadale Devils 2020

    Are you calling Ryan a 3 pointer or not expecting him in?
  20. Islander15

    IOW 2020

    Wirtzfeld returns. Very happy with that.
  21. Islander15

    IOW 2020

    Exactly. To add to that Ben has ridden Championship away tracks fairly regularly for the last couple of years whereas Ledwith hasn’t at all for 20 years.
  22. Islander15

    Armadale Devils 2020

    Well enough clubs have signed him
  23. Islander15

    Belle Vue Colts 2020

    Can we not agree that all 3 are genuinely very good prospects?
  24. Islander15

    Mildenhall 2020

    Nicely built team throughout. Potential at reserve and a decent heat leader trio who know West Row.
  25. Islander15

    Armadale Devils 2020

    Yes Jason Pipe has said the fixture should facilitate this. Like IOW on a Thurs & Plymouth on a Fri etc. Or Leicester on a Sat & Mildenhall on a Sun.
