    He was the master of no nonsense. It took my three kids 3/4 of a season to get a high five off him on the victory lap after a race on the back straight but they eventually cracked him ! He was an excellent servant for the Rebels.

    No not the case apparently as they are still talking the full amount from 28 March to 27 April for my March monthly direct debit. The suspension can only kick in the month after - hence 30 days notice during which they are charging you for something they can’t provide. Doesn’t seem fair to me.

    Did it online yesterday via the Sky website takes 30 days to activate which is a bit of a cheek considering there is no live sport in the next 4 weeks. Reduces my monthly dd by £20 - you still get to watch all sky sports channels during the suspension

    Unless the rules have changed (?) Luke will have to start at No 5 as he is 2nd in the averages.

    Well done to the management a terrific replacement considering the circumstances. Im sure he will be great around the OTA once dialled in.

    That’s my point as he is though !

    Makes a mockery of not waiting to get Covatti back in the first place

    Good luck to the lad I hope he gets his Visa sorted.

    I just used Rowe as an example, I don't think he will either but another rider could or collectively the team could. I agree I think there's a fair chance there will be a change or two with this team come May/June.

    Seriously ? Why would you start the season knowing you have a rider on an inflated average - don't sign him in the first place if you think that! Imagine if Rowe increases his average by 2 points after the first set of averages are out, you are then stuffed bringing anyone else in if BWD average does drop. I don't see the logic unless you are telling riders to blatantly reduce their averages early in the season which makes no sense. Why not start a season with riders who you feel will increase or at least attain their starting GSA, sounds novel eh?

    I think Rowe is the only one I would put money on to up his average. Barker and Bates 'may' up theirs and they 'may not', that's the point, they are probably riders with averages that reflect their ability, you don't look at either and go they will 100% increase their starting average. I hope they do and I will support them, but I don't see either as great value compared to others on similar averages who have a better chance of increasing their starting average IMO.

    This team looks worse than last years when the Rebels were never really in the mix. BWD is a decent rider but he isn't a No 1 IMO. Ellis or Covatti were much better options and a point lower average. That extra point could have then been used to get a better heat leader than Barker or an upgrade on Bates. I would have also had Starke all day long over Bates on the same average. I can't see this team challenging and they will get some hidings on the road. There doesn't look many riders with a good chance of upping their average which is what successful teams are built on. They maybe entertaining at home but don't look that solid. Just my opinion

    No to Vissing thank you - that would be a dodgy heat leader trio as it I can’t see Schlein upping his average and Barker is inconsistent

    Cheers. No value there then

    I’m not entirely sure about Bellego’s average but I think he last rode in the championship in 2016 averaging 7.63. I’m not sure if his PL average would supersede this.
