One of Poole's "have-a-go" webmasters are busy f*cking the site up at the moment, so that may well be why. The more obvious reason is Matt loves a press opportunity and will probably big it up a little closer to the season starting.

Risky move if the Poles hold firm though!

Seems silly to make it public if they decide not to lift there rule - Unless Matt thinks a bit of pressure from a local paper will sway there descion!?!

The local news was reporting that the rule had been lifted?

Because before every season Poole is always the best 1-7 and everyone else looks poor.

Then before every single match he will put up a preview classing Poole as the underdogs.then if Poole win it will be against the odds

Happens every season and the vast majority on here just laugh at it really

Every season speedway star and it's experts install Poole as favourite's , and rightly so, there always there or there abouts

All the Poole fans saying the rule has been dropped.

So why no announcement of Sundstrom and Shanes then???

The riders themselves havent said they have signed either.

Last minute issues??

Oh here we go, Gavan trying to create drama when there isn't any. Ned Payne has already said he expects to be able to put something in the Echo this week. Never gonna be on a Monday with all the football coverage.

Do try to keep up Gav - Poole's first team meeting is v Somerset on Good Friday!!  You know -  the team with the current World Champion and as you've already said the Poole 2018 team is not as good as 2017, I guess Poole will start as underdogs against the Rebels?!:D

It’s done. Not quite sure what everyone is getting bothered about. 

 

It it was reported on Sportowefakty by a reporter that it had been relaxed however this hasn't been confirmed and may well have been a mistake in translation and should have been that the argument was X and not that it has been resolved.

 

As Iversen or Sundstrom have still not been announced by Kings Lynn or Poole respectively or a press release from the BSPA it is still not officially known if an agreement has been reached.

 

I would say that it would surprise me that Poland would agree to a deal that saw riders taking on more leagues just so they can have first call on a few Thursday's in case it rains during the play offs especially with the money now on offer through TV deals.

 

N Sport have stated at least 42 matches will be shown live this season and there is only 62 all season and in 2019 ALL meetings will be filmed live in the Exstraliga and that's on top of over forty meetings on other channels shown live from Division One and Two. 

 

When Sundstrom signs for Poole we will know it's either sorted or he has dropped his Thursday meetings in Sweden

He is on the Poole website. Pretty much a confirmation.

The polish ruling confirmation.  That's the only one that's important. Got that one?

If a team looks good on paper it has a reasonable chance of looking good on the track.

 

And boy, did we love the look of Poole on the track last season! :)
