    If it was a polish team I'd know where they would be and it wouldn't be Sheffield!!!

    Two out of seven is a shade over 28% to be more exact, so in reality it's not even 3/4.

    Sheffield 2019

    That may be so, but it's not like they signed yesterday. Plenty of time to ask Sheffield if they could get two replacements in the three weeks since they signed. I'd much rather they practised around there 'home' track (especially Lambert) instead of somewhere where they are only going to be there twice at the most. It doesn't look good for the press ( come and meet 3/4 of our team on press day) or their sponsors ( sorry but your logo's wont be appearing in the local press as I won't be at the press day).

    A poor show in my opinion. The club needs all the press/TV coverage it can get yet it would appear that at least one is missing and the other is buggering off early. No chance of the press getting team photo's etc. if they aren't all there. Then at 16:30 you've got "Meet three quarters of the team" in he bar.

    I see Newcastle Diamonds' Steve Worrall and Simon Lambert are down to ride on Sunday. It's also Newcastle's press and practice day at lunchtime on Sunday. Not sure how they can do both. I'm sure the Newcastle promotion would want them to be at Newcastle!!??

    Interestingly both Steve and Simon are still listed as riding at Sheffield on Sunday according to Sheffield website.

    Hope not, as it gives teams who reach revised GSA's first a distinct advantage of strengthening up before the others can. it should remain unchanged so that teams can only replace like for like as I can't see how any team is going to below the points limit by the first change, unless they have a totally desperate start with at least three or more riders failing to reach there starting average.

    Yes. His grandmother is british so he has a paternity visa as opposed to needing a work sponsored visa, which is why he can still come over and 'work' despite Workington closing (unlike the unfortunate Mason Campton).

    Not a lot then. Carl Wilkinson , Max Ruml, Simon Lambert, Gino Manzares, and Josh MacDonald (if he's a 4.00) all fit. Not that I'm saying I'd want some of them signed up though. There are probably others I've overlooked as well. Tough on Victor as well.

    Dead easy to cut down the number of guests. Each team to have a NL (2.00) no. 8. Guest for your number 1 only. R/R for nos. 2 to 5. If both teams are using R/R then your highest reserve is promoted into the team and your no. 8 takes his reserve spot.

    Visa criteria

    According to this week's Star (07 feb) josh has a british grandmother. Therefore he is entitled to an Ancestory Visa which is valid for five years. All he has to do is come over and collect it. Presumably it enables him to do just about any job he wants (?) and as such he doesn't need a work sponsor.

    I would think one of the reserve dates would be arranged as a challenge at a later date once the Shield matches are out of the way in case a date is needed for a rain-off.

    I quote (from the article) :-"If I don't get that visa I get hit with the twelve month cooling off period. I have to be out of England for a year so I won't be able to return to racing until 2020 There's no way round that" That's next year. But he obviously feels that a year out of UK racing would mean he'd be practically starting over again, and at his age (25) it would be too much of a struggle. A great shame really.

    A tier 5 Visa is valid for 3 years, and may be extended for a further 3 (as long as it continues without a break) which is where Mason is at the moment. Not sure the 7 point rule applies anymore unless it's at the end of year six. There are quite a few on visa's which didn't make a GSA of 7.00 last year.
