    Peterborough v Poole Prem Mon April 15th

    I agree that Worrall and Covatti had off nights. One thing to consider is Covatti had just won the Italian championship on Sunday and had just got back. Agree riders do this all the time. However, I must bring these facts to light in view of what you say of these Poole riders. Remember Poole have raced 3 meetings one at home and two away. Over these 3 meetings Worrall is a little down on his average at 4.72 against a start of 5.46, Covatti even with such a low score yesterday is at 4.72 against a start of 4.70, Kurtz is at 8.00 against a start of 7.05. I am not saying there is no room for improvement but why show concern at this stage. A few more meetings balanced home and away before any true judgement can be made.

    Does it really matter?

    If anyone agrees with you or not it matters not. That is your opinion and you are entitled to it. In my opinion I believe Neil has done a great job. But that's my thoughts.

    Poole were very fortunate with the way things went. This type of thing happens so much in a dangerous sport. A soccer or rugby team would bring in other players from their squad or an injured player would be substituted. Not practical in speedway but a squad system would make more of an even playing field.

    As I stated in an earlier post most reserves they will come again they met last season in the NL

    I think that in this league next season the reserves will mainly be from this years National League. This is why I suggested the names I have. You are looking at losing on average about 4.5 points from each team on last years starting averages. on finishing averages the lowest last year was Sheffield on 38.60 and the highest was Edinburgh on a whacking 46.44. To drop to 38 teams will have to bring riders up a league.

    What everyone has forgotten is the low 38 point limit. Therefore nearly every team will have very low average reserves. What average would Henry Atkins or Richard Andrews come in on. Maximum I would think 2.5 each. Alfie Bowtell has an average of 2.38. After taking into account the top 3 already signed you have a total of 15.05 points left. Two reserves would take it down to about 10.05 for the last 2 riders. Maybe someone like Paul Starke at 5.88, James Shane's 5.09, Mark Riss at 4.84, Ben Morley 4.92 all come not the numbers game. i think BWD at 6.00 and Todd Kurtz at 5.91 are too high. However new Australians on 4 could come into play. Fun doing guessing games. Mr May and Miss Hancock will sort it out.

    In a way I am sorry to see Somerset go down a league. But at least it will be easier to support both Somerset and Poole. Good luck to both teams.
  13. Everyone is entitled to their own oplnion. This is the weakest top level league we have seen in this country. Riders now ride for so many teams around Europe They are bound to get more injuries leaving a weak league with R/R and or Guest riding nearly every match. Remember when a rider only rode for your team. That's when you really got team spirit. So yes with this weak league the team that won it probably are the weakest there has been and would not have beate past winning teas.
  14. Well done the Rebels. Great set of fans and riders.
