    2019 Extraliga fixtures?

    Yes the pairs meeting is confirmed as the night before Cardiff

    Somerset 2019

    Campton's average is well over a point higher than Berge's so wouldn't fit. Lambert simply isn't good enough.

    Given Berge's history there was always a question mark over him but he looked to be the key rider in this side if it was to challenge Jan Graversen, Mark Riss and Emil Grondal are other possible options.

    Play off contenders

    Sheffield Eastbourne Edinburgh Redcar Don't think there is a real stand out team, they all have strong points but question marks over other areas. With the exception of Birmingham I think you could make a case for any of the other sides to reach the top 4 which should make for a very interesting season.

    Speedway Star in the winter

    Read this yesterday, it's nice to see that Ricky is making progress. You have to admire the determination and hard work he's put in to get to this stage, not forgetting of course the wonderful job his dad continues to do. They should both be very proud of how much they've achieved together. If he ends up taking part in the Paralympics then it would obviously be an amazing story but whether that happens or not it's great that he's found a way to keep involved in sport. Good luck to Ricky and his family.

    Difficult to judge until other sides are complete but there's a lot of question marks over that side. Could do well but wouldn't be a surprise if it was nearer the bottom either. Schlein on paper is a good signing but is in his last season before retiring, will that have an impact? As the season goes on, it would be natural to just start thinking more about staying safe especially with the injuries he's had over the years. Don't see too much improvement if any in Harris, no matter the level he will be inconsistent and have his fair share of poor meetings which is why his average is always around the same figure. Berge has the potential for a healthy increase but you think that every season, it never seems to happen and he ends up moving on. Kurtz has probably reached his level. The 2 reserves have good potential but both are very young still, neither are quite in the top level of the NL and whilst most other reserves will be from the 3rd tier they will likely have a little more experience.

    If Starke and BWD are elsewhere as expected then Kyle Newman would be a better option than Kurtz

    Eastbourne 2019

    I'm assuming the 5 riders Jon Cook named in the Speedway Star article this week will be in your side so; Lawson, Kennett, Bowtell, Wood, Brennan which leaves around 14.35. Add in Adam Ellis perhaps and that would be 6.71 left.

    Harris 7.52 if he gets the 2.5% reduction, Covatti 6.56 so 23.92 left. Interesting signing in Harris as you wouldn't say the OTA has been one of his better tracks.

    Premiership Play-offs 2019

    If they are staying with the top 4, how about; 1st vs 2nd and 3rd vs 4th (1 leg). Winner of 1st vs 2nd goes direct to final. Loser at home to winner of 3rd vs 4th to decide the other finalist. Final over 2 legs.

    Not many riders around the 4 point mark which makes things a little difficult with the limit of 38. Wright (7.68), Covatti (6.56), Wilson-Dean (5.85), Starke (5.73), Wajtknecht (5.06), Shanes (4.96), Atkins (2) - 37.84 Or going for more strength at the top; Morris (8.67), Wright (7.68), Ellis (7.64), Wilson-Dean (5.85), Greaves (3.99), Atkins (2), Kemp? (2) 37.83 If Kennett is available with his average from the Premiership last year that would convert to 8.16 which looks good value

    Eastbourne 2018

    Maybe just coincidence but Eastbourne and Birmingham seem to be the only NL sides who have updated their website with the AGM statement..

    AGM November 2018

    " The British Premiership, Championship and National Development Leagues have entertained a growing and more diverse audience by consistently delivering speedway of the highest quality. " The plan to gradually reduce doubling-up/down is fair enough because I don't think you can just bin it completely straight away but is the plan likely to survive it's 5 years? The Premiership using Thursday's is the sensible option just a year too late. A fan nominated race via social media just seems like a poor attempt at trying to look modern, it's hardly going to keep kids entertained during races etc. And naming a competition the 'Premiership Supporters Cup' is awful and embarassing, that needs changing right now before the season starts. Overall it mostly seems more of the same and disappointing.

    Interesting.. assume this means Chapman isn't buying Peterborough as rumoured?

    Disappointing to see Somerset drop down but if that's what needs to be done for the future of the club.. whatever league they're in you can guarentee the team will be competitive and entertaining.
