    Brummies v Rebels 17.04.19

    Grobauer deserved a hell of lot more than 3 last night tbf, suffered a mechanical failure whilst on a 5-1. Kurtz rode well and was decent, won his main race in heat 8 and two 4-2s with Schlein. The main problem was the reserves they have the quality but not the experience. Atkins showed some quality getting out the gates but let it drop every single time. Rowe was on the pace but just not enough knowledge to mount challenges. Still a good win and was a brilliant meeting to watch.

    Brummies v Rebels 17.04.19

    Guests or not that was some speedway meeting. Obviously i'm happy to have won but Brummies gave their all but simply outdone by Covatti and Schlein as Brummies had no answer to them apart from a rare mistake from Schlein. Even when 6 points behind you could tell the Rebels were far from done. Too many inconsistent rides from Birmingham and tbh only really held the lead due to the inexperience of the Rebels reserves. Valentin was unlucky to retire whilst on a 5-1 as well.

    Tbh no one doubted the bottom end it's up there as one of the best. Wajtknecht is improving season on season, Paco has experience and Shanes is one of the best NL to step up. Thomsen would find it easier when he went to reserve too. The heat leaders were the question Morris has showed up but Ostergaard and Newman are the weakest heat leaders in the league.

    Schlein and Summers may not go undefeated but will probably score a boatload more than the Brummies top end. It's the rest i'm worried about tbh. The Brummie reserves are better than ours, Kurtz needs to improve from his Eastie showing and Grobauer has never seen the place before. Covatti knows Perry Bar but is up against arguably the best rider so far for Birmingham in Morris.

    Harris is indeed out injured showed he wasn't fully fit for Ipswich and has pulled out. Aaron Summers guests in good form atm and knows the track so arguably makes Rebels stronger.

    EASTBOURNE v SOMERSET 13th April

    Can't believe the crac Harris is getting. First bad meeting this season against the best Heat Leader trio in the league. Not many riders will beat them this season at home and tbh away too. Don't get me wrong it was a disgusting defeat but it was the lower end that really should have been putting up more of a fight. Unfortunately we have a team with too many racers and stood no chance last night. Need to fix it or there will be changes no doubt, May isn't one to shy away.

    EASTBOURNE v SOMERSET 13th April

    In all fairness it's Eastbourne trying to drum up interest for a big crowd as they have never faced us before they have put two articles up about the same thing Bomber Harris. But yes it's annoying to have to read on another website. Although I will say the meeting updates on social media have improved massively.

    He is, it's on the Eastbourne website. Justin Sedgmen is guesting in his place. Weakens the Rebels imo.

    EASTBOURNE v SOMERSET 13th April

    Heat leader trio battles will be something to behold however Rebels have the better second strings imho. Reserve battles will be good Wood and Brennan may be heat leaders but Rowe and Atkins are no slouches in the National league.

    Somerset v Birmingham CS 10/4

    Unfortunately just the sign of the times tbh. General speedway going downhill and crowds just not being that great at Somerset anyway. A lot of fans pick and choose now. Hasn't helped keeping to a Wednesday either as a lot of fans come from Poole, Plymouth, Swindon, Bristol etc can't really do that now midweek and work the next day. Plus as someone said the whole presentation is rubbish the last time I went I was bores in between races.

    I don't know I live and work in Worcester so don't get to many meetings any more. I was watching the updates and pictures on Instagram. I'll be at the fixture in Brum though

    Would you see Wright shepherd round Atkins for his first win and talking to youngsters in the pits. Doubt it tbh.

    Somerset v Birmingham CS 10/4

    14 points? That's not a mauling? First meeting this season too for a few of our riders and two riders scored nearly half of your points.

    Somerset 2019

    Schlein and Harris or Wright. I know the choice I would make as much as I like Wrighty, Schlein/ Harris will help the youngsters way more whilst banging in just as many points.

    Somerset v Birmingham CS 10/4

    Should be a Decent win for the Rebels but not massive as first competitive meeting as a team. Schlein, Harris and Nico shouldn't have too much trouble tbh and the reserves know the track way better than the Brummie pairing. Kurtz should have the beating of Thomsen. Wajtknecht however is one to look out for.
