    Isle of Wight 2019

    Now we know the Warriors are confirmed in the league and in the Trophy it’s time to speculate who will be in the team under the excellent and respected stewardship of Barry Bishop & Martin Widman. Ill need to have a think about the actual potential line-up but it would be particularly good to see Alfie return, Bursill as the 2 pointer and maybe poach a youngster or two from Eastbourne!
  2. Can a number 8 replace a reserve? Also what’s the minimum number of rides someone in the 1-7 must take?
  3. I understand that in general, but whoever your number 8 isn’t a significant member of the team. Anyway time to put Premier on!
  4. What’s the advantage in naming number 8s so late?
  5. What are the rules on number 8s please? Can they replace a teammate at any time?
  6. Plug your laptop into the TV by HDMI cable. You have to cancel 1 month in advance if I remember from subscribing to them previously.
  7. Which shops are selling it at the minute?
  8. The meetings should be on Premier Player online too so I’ll choose to watch them when I want to and then fast forward through the gaps.
  9. Excellent crowd. The car park was full with lots of people stood all around the track, I’d guess at 800-1000.
  10. I think more people will go for this reason than us fans being guilt tripped to go because we’ll soon ‘forget’ about Ayres, Ashworth & Stead.

    IOW 2020

    A shock and very unfair timing on the club and it’s supporters. Not many available options at all unfortunately.

    Armadale Devils 2020

    Lewis Millar has some NL experience even if it’s very limited and Rothery has probably shown up best so maybe those two will start at reserve. Good to see the Devils giving youth a chance whilst still putting out a respectable team with 3 good heat leaders who are all young too.
  13. Probably the two biggest names as well
  14. I was hoping that a few Premiership riders would be competing to give a bit of variety but unfortunately there’s only Thorssell that doesn’t ride Championship as well.

    Armadale Devils 2020

    The rules don’t let riders do the NL and NT for separate teams though. That’s why Flint has left Newcastle.

    Armadale Devils 2020

    Not true. I do like Phillips but it’s fact that his career has stagnated so I was being positive by hoping that a change of track will help him.

    Armadale Devils 2020

    He’s not really kicked on at all so hopefully a change of track will finally get him back on track in his career.

    Jason Pipe resigns

    So we’ll need a new man in charge and inevitably new ideas! If he can cope with the workload I think there’s only one man for the job. That is Barry Bishop! If that’s a conflict of interest then I think there’s another obvious appointment, if he has enough time on his hands: Connor Dugard!

    Peterborough Panthers 2020

    An ageing team but nevertheless a lot better than I think most expected. It should be happier home fans this term with a genuine number 1 and always a strong reserve whether that be Nicholls or MPT or someone else!

    Newcastle Gems NT 2020

    We will see if he’s ‘easily a big scorer’ but he has been signed to replace the second heat leader yet he has never achieved an average over 7! Even if by some miracle he does excellent this season, is he really going to be promoted to the Diamonds set up and be a prominent figure for years like Clegg is looking like he could be and other Gems like Freeman and Halder could be?!
  21. Islander15

    Newcastle Gems NT 2020

    He halved his average last year and is nearer state pension age than Flint’s age!

    Newcastle Gems NT 2020

    Who wants to watch Wallinger rather than Flint? This decision is a shame for Newcastle fans and those of clubs that the Gems will travel to.

    Poole Pirates 2020

    Have Poole forgotten that there’s promising young Brits around, or did they look straight Down Under?!

    Plymouth speedway

    Yes Phillips said he wanted to run some practices first.

    Newcastle Gems NT 2020

    Flint is one of the best riders in the league, in fact he has the 4th highest average of NT riders (and that includes Clegg). Brough Park will be a new track for most NL riders and I’m sure Leon will get some practice in too.
