    Sheffield v Ipswich 27 June.

    Total guff - no one has slagged the track staff. It wasn't their fault in any way They could only work with what they had available Had they have had the correct spare sections and connections no doubt it would've been done far more speedily If it had been at Ipswich then the criticism would've been the same from the Witches fans on here. In general those posting on here from Ipswich are the least forgiving of their own promotion and if anything more critical where things are not quite right on their doorstep Rarely will you see the Witches posters trying to defend the indefensible just because its their team/promotion

    It's all about which meetings are dropping off with the gradual reduction from 20 to 10 For 2023 it will only be the last 10 matches from 2022 that are included so anything up until now irrelevant There will be some big changes as the sample size shrinks.......

    Injury has to be "long term" A few weeks for a scaphoid is far from long term As ever though the regulation is wooly enough to be open to interpretation so it could depend on whose asking Mind you further changes unlikely to be required anyway

    So now you are saying that you think that your own promoter doesn't know what the hell he is talking about - good to know

    Read it again Charlieboy! "Our track staff tried several things before having to come up with a makeshift solution on the spot" That's is the very definition of a bodge job

    Sheffield v Ipswich 27 June.

    Yes it would take 45 minutes to type if you didn't have the equipment of skills to copy and paste in seconds Quite an apt analogy for the situation WE would like to thank supporters for their patience and understanding during Monday night’s home fixture with Ipswich. The Tru Plant Tigers moved to the top of the Premiership with a 43-35 win over Ipswich in a match curtailed due to the curfew at Owlerton. A lengthy delay was experienced following a high-speed crash for visiting captain Danny King in Heat Seven – and while club bosses do understand some frustrations vented their way, they are urging people to focus on the positives ahead of the next fixture in the Steel City against reigning Champions Peterborough on Thursday, July 14 (7.30). Club promoter Damien Bates said: “Monday night was a bizarre one for us, it really was. “The team got the win we were after and that we needed and after moving to the top of the table, we should’ve left the stadium on a real high. “However, as a promotion, we probably left feeling lower than we have done for a long, long time. “We know how frustrating the length of the delay was between the first staging of Heat Seven and then the re-run, whether that be for the supporters who had paid to come into the stadium or those who had stayed at home to watch live on Eurosport and Discovery+. “But I can honestly, honestly tell you now it was such a rare, unique, freak incident, I’ve never seen it happen before and I’d be surprised if we see it again. “Where Danny and his bike hit the air fence on bend two, it burst a couple of bags. “But somehow, the angle everything has hit, it destroyed the inflatable tube which gets the air flowing between each bag. “Replacing an air bag is usually a ten minute job at most, but with this ‘air pathway’, if you like, damaged, it was a much more complicated job. “To add to the issue, it was the air bag that connects to the gate that opens and closes to let the tractors and ambulances out on bend two. “This is a slightly different type of air bag to the rest and has to be at a certain level to connect with the rest of the air fence. “Our track staff tried several things before having to come up with a makeshift solution on the spot – and had they not figured that out, the meeting would’ve had to be abandoned at that point, we wouldn’t have seen any more racing, we wouldn’t have got a result and everyone would’ve had to have left there and then and we’d have had to have all came back and do it all over again on another night. “Do I understand people’s frustrations? Yes, of course I do. But there was genuinely nothing else we could’ve done to speed things up unfortunately. “It may have taken time but at no point could we ever put the safety of riders at risk by not having a fully inflated air bag…”

    If there is such a unique section and connections within the airfence set up then professionalism would dictate you have at least one spare of that special section and connections ready for a speedy switch That would mean an embarrassing bodge it job wouldn't be required

    But would they use their 2nd and last available change to cover the same spot in the team only 2 weeks before and with such a long way to go before the window closes.....

    I bet if the Tigers are 2 points down going into heat 15 of the 2nd leg of the Grand Final and its hits 10:15 that the curfew won't be enforced..
