Are the 2018 rules and regs available now??

Christina Turnbull had a set at the Poole fans meeting last night. Neil Vatcher mentioned a few snippets. 1. The second starting line has been withdrawn and riders must remain astride their machines whilst ‘gardening’.  2. Rider eligibility for heat 15 is being expanded. 3. Of the six trainee referees who started in 2017 only three are going in to year 2. There are six new trainees starting out in 2018.

I always thought Poole had their own rulebook:P

Surely the first point, that riders must remain astride their machines whilst gardening, discriminates against those riders who are not tall enough to to be able to garden without getting off their bikes. Are short people an ethnic group? I'm glad now that we didn't sign Kenneth Bjerre. :lol:

So with the season start less than 2 weeks away and Josh Bates out until at least the end of April with a target of the British Semi final I hear.

That means 10 meetings being missed which in my view is far too many to be covered by RR including very important KO cup meetings and with the new race night the club need to win some meetings to keep supporters coming.

Who would Lions fans like to come in to replace Josh ? To me the best options seems to be Lasse,Klindt or Starke

I would think it will be either Bjerre or Starke because of the Sheffield connection but my preference would have been Eric Riss but I understand he is fully committed already. Klindt would be ok though.

Lasse Bjerre or Aaron Summers would be my picks as a temporary replacement for Josh Bates!
