    Redcar v Leicester Semi final

    Can a team use a guest in the play-off final that as rode for one of the 2 losing play-off semi- finalists? so could Riss guest for Worrall, which would only fit at Leicester not the away leg.

    Steve Worrall for Lions, Jake Allen for Redcar

    League Finals - new dates

    Championship play-off S/F, Leicester v Redcar on the 12th, so if Wolves won, no Douglas , if Swindon win Perks would be unavailable.

    If Lions win, the final will be the following weekend, Saturday 19th, I'd imagine.If Redcar win, the final will be the same friday / weekend so no difference really.

    They have booked 2 ambulances & meeting starts at 5.30 , so hopefully should be ok this time. Fingers crossed.

    Lawson certainly strengths the Bears, that is some trio. Lions will do well to keep it within 8-10 points.

    Both Cubs meetings have already been abandoned once, one is a cup S/F the other a play-off S/F, so other clubs are waiting on the outcome of these matches so competitions can continue. Lions have run midweek meetings but it has a big impact on the crowd & they will want a big crowd for the play-off S/F & will only get that on a Saturday.

    Forecast for Tuesday isn't good, Wednesday forecast is much better but Cubs riding away against Cradley, so that rules Perks out, unless Cubs use a guest.

    If that's the case Lions better pile up those points tomorrow, because they'll need them! Lions guests looking a bit limited for next Friday. Edinburgh v Newcastle now rearranged for same day, which rules out S.Worrall & Pickering. If Redcar decide to use Lawson then Allen could swap sides. Only other candidates are Howarth & Ellis.

    Correct, no Lawson now, average will be to high. Nichol was no longer guesting for Greaves anyway, he had been declared fit to ride, although the preview yesterday on the Lions website still showed Nichol. I think it was written before Greaves was declared fit.

    If either or both meetings are postponed, it's highly likely to be October before they are ridden, in which case the October averages will be in force, these aren't yet on the SGB website so I can't check, but it could mean the original guests aren't eligible to ride because their averages no longer fit. Obviously now only applies to R.Worrall & MPT, as Greaves is now riding. Lawson was only 0.01 of a point inside Richie's average for September. I've just checked SGB website & October's average's are now showing. If friday's meeting at Redcar is off, Lawson won't be able to guest if the rearranged meeting is in October, he will have gone up to 8.32. MPT's average goes up to 8.18, so the original guests that were booked would still be eligible.
  12. Somerset V Glasgow play-off SF on Wednesday, Harris & Covatti riding in that.

    Can see your point, but what Stewart Dickson said, when interviewed before the last meeting, was he'd narrowed it down to a choice of 2 opponents( didn't say which 2), & would discuss it with the riders to get their opinions, but ultimately the final decision was his.

    Leicester 2019

    Definitely think the Bears will be stronger, just by having Nichol at reserve. With ex Lions men Wright & Riss they will certainly be strong at Leicester, both ride the track excellently. Wright looked the best visiting rider i've seen all season, in the league match that was cut short when the curfew was reached. If it gets close towards the end Redcar will certainly have strength in heats 13 & 15.

    Redcar won't now be able to use him in their home leg either, because Newcastle are now at Edinburgh in a re-arranged fixture. So I imagine it could be Adam Ellis or Jake Allen.
