    Leicester NL 2019

    The only way he’d be a steal would be if someone took him without asking first.

    He first rode here in 2009 for Newport, he’ll be 30 next year. Not a steal by any stretch of the imagination.

    No he isn’t, he’s been around Donkey’s years and is still a NL reserve/second string. Reached his level.
  4. Nothing weird about a bet. What way inclined?
  5. Oh no, I want to see your face when you hand the money over. Or are you having second thoughts about your original point?
  6. I’ll come to a NL meeting with you next year, before the race you predict it and we’ll see what percentage you get right. If it’s 80% I’ll give you the money for your entry fee, if it’s less you give me my entry fee. Deal?

    Don’t think much of yours if that’s the side. Reserves look very weak. Cook can only score 15 a meeting (without R/R or TS etc.).

    You know why.

    Edinburgh 2019

    I’m not an Edinburgh fan. Plenty of better two pointers out there, Ruddick would be scraping the barrel for any team in honesty. If the limit was 42.5 he’d be worth the gamble, not so sure with a 38 point limit. Is he really a point and a half better than some two pointers? Looking at his NL form last season, probably not.

    So many far better options out there than Ruddick. Clegg’s been poor for a couple of years now. Would be better served signing a two pointer and having a point to use further up the order.
  12. A bit of handbags is never a bad thing. Well done to BT for keeping the cameras on it too. Etheridge had nothing to complain about but it escalated because of involvement from the Lynn side once the riders got back to the pit gate. I’ve never seen Simon Lambert move so fast, on or off a bike. If he had that kind of speed on the track he’d have had a much better career.

    Doyle was signed as a temporary replacement for Boxall. Doyle performed, Steve’s return date was coming up and we could have released another rider (Bowen or Hawkins iirc) and accommodated both, which would have strengthened the team no end. Instead Doyle was let go and Boxall came back, we went on to have a crap year. Fast forward just five or so years and Doyle is a World Champion while Hawkins is retired and Bowen and Boxall are racing in the NL.

    I don’t think we ever claimed to be responsible for discovering Tai. We played an important part in his development and seeing him currently the best rider in the world drives home how lucky we were to be graced by his talent for two seasons. Scunthorpe aren’t solely responsible either however, Tai cut his teeth in Australia and came over here in 2006 without a team spot with his Dad looking for a ride anywhere. Scunthorpe used him in a challenge I believe where he excelled and so they snapped him up, the rest is history of course. Even Auty isn’t a Scunthorpe discovery, he was the hottest property in youth speedway pre-2006 and started out riding at Sheffield I believe. Certainly not Scunthorpe as he was riding before they re-opened as a youth.

    You’ll find that in 2007 Scunthorpe only raced in the Conference and Tai rode for them as well as the Rockets in the PL. We didn’t nick him, we made him an offer and he took it.
