Wow! That's got to be the team to beat this year. If the Pole's perform as Matt and Middlo hope, and Holder makes a bit of a comeback, we should be near untouchable.

Poole should have had Hans and Shanes........instead they could get shafted

I would agree but probably Sundstrom has more potential to improve his average and now confirmed that we can proceed with signing him now they have lifted the 3 league rule.

Only on paper at the moment just like last year untouchable better to wait and see I think

Sundstrom, Woryna and Szczepeniak I'd have question marks over just for the fact they've either not ridden here for a while and/or have never showed anything over here previously. However, if they show their form from abroad Poole will get close.

Excellent news! Only affects Swindon if there are playoff clashes so that can be worked around.

Welcome to Poole Linus and welcome back Shansey!

What. a. Team!

If as it seems only play off clashes then Swindon should be ok and possibly only have to change a few meetings.

Powerhouse lineup.  Once the new lads get dialled in they should dominate. No weak links and even our number 7 is stronger than some other sides number 6. And if Shansey does find it tough at certain tracks we have a rock solid number 6 to cover.

Last season I felt the team had journeymen happy with their position in a heat after the second bend. Matt Ford has tried to eradicate this issue and bring in a team of racers. Riders who are not happy to settle for a point but want to score more.

Happy days.

I don’t think Poole choke very often. We had injuries which wrecked our chances in 2016 and a number 1 in 2017 who made himself look a pillock with his attitude.

We could be back to business as usual in 2018 with that lineup, baring injuries of course.

I for one think it was the right call to replace Hans, who on his day is very good but is now journeyman personified, cramming in as many meetings as possible. Don’t blame him of course but by doing so he rides within himself so to avoid injury and time out. Not what we need in 2018.

No doubt that Darcy was more talented on a bike than Ivan. If he hadn't had it taken away from him I'm sure he'd have been world champ time and time again.

I seem to remember that that 1-7 was being called untouchable about this time last season!!!!!

The 1-7 this season for Poole looks no better than last seasons to me. Many ifs and buts in Sundstrom and the 2 Poles and Holder......................would hate to see last season repeated..................you never know Lahti and Kennett might be free mid season to replace Holder and one of the Poles!

Mark Loram, Joe Screen, Kelly Moran.......all more talented than Ivan Mauger on a bike but it takes something special to become a multi world champion.

For all his talent Darcy hadnt got there when his career cut short...................but to say he would have been world champ time and again is a bit much
