    Redcar probably offered No 1 status money to Wrighty whereas the Rebels has probably already spent big on Harris/Schlien and offered Charles far less.

    As a Somerset fan I am delighted Brady is back in the U.K. what a top bloke and entertaining rider. I remember watching his U.K. debut meeting in April 2014 when he got a 15 point max, winning from the gate and the back.At that point I knew he was a special talent. He may have had a few tough years but I’m convinced he has what it takes to progress to the top of the sport, he is so stylish and quick when in front. Enjoy him Poole fans and give the lad a little slack he’s still a very young man and will have ups and downs. I look forward to the odd visit to Poole now you have a different race night to Somerset and watching him rip it up.

    Your point hasn’t been debated about junior pricing if indeed it is £10 for a 12 year old to attend, that’s way too much and discouraging the next generation to fall in love with the sport, many simply won’t come as parents won’t be able to afford it. I have 3 kids who come to Somerset with me most weeks (2 are aged over 12) and if it was £10 per 12 year old, I simply couldn’t justify bringing them and would then have to justify attending myself, as we attend as a family and it simply wouldn’t be the same on my own without them. £10 for a student who can potentially earn some money - maybe at a push - but a tenner for a 12 year old sorry that’s simply not viable for most families and is short sighted by promoters. It will hurt them in the long run as a generation will be lost to the sport. Like most of you out there we were hooked as kids!

    I agree I think Somerset have a much better top 5 than Scunny, I don’t know enough about the respective reserves.

    Why was BWD not signed ? What was the issue? Todd is a top guy and great team man but I think BWD will have an higher average at the end of the season.

    Why would Somerset let him go elsewhere then? It must be one thing £££. I can’t see Eastbourne having a bigger budget being new to the league.

    Who owns BWD’s contract Jon Cook ?

    Decent signing Berge Starkey to follow ?

    I wasn’t too worried about dropping down a league to start with but once you realise Harris or Schlein will be up against a NL novice it hardly wets the appetite. Last season in the PL a reserve could beat a heat leader consistently - that’s never going to happen in the CL and the racing is likely to be very strung out.

    I agree it’s the 4 to 6 point averaged riders who will be discarded for a 2 point NL rider.

    Yes I think BWD and Zach W fit or Starkey and Zach W

    Blimey the Rebels are weak at reserve - no disrespect to the two young guys learning the game they will take time to settle no doubt. I dubious it’s the right tactic building so top heavy. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Starkey return

    I would have thought a Thurs would have been better avoiding all the football clashes on a Weds unless Swindon objected and the promotion were left facing Monday night racing.

    Eastbourne 2019

    Fantastic news welcome back Eastbourne to the middle tier of racing. I remember by visits fondly from the 90’s ( well actually i was always in a foul mood as my team invariably got stuffed!). Great news for speedway that the club feel confident enough to step up.
