Are you sure? 

When the Nicholls debate about CL eligibility was ongoing, iirc it was stated that the under 6 PL egiblity to enter the CL would not apply to those who rode in the 2016 CL.

As Grajczonek rode for Sheffield in 2016, reckon he could still return to the CL, irrespective of his current PL GSA.

Certainly allowable in an initial declaration but previous season average is now voided

Can anyone be sure with numerous supplementary regs inserted on an ad hoc basis to firefight individual situations even months into the season....

May well depends who is asking who :rolleyes:

Hang on just a bit - If Boro beat the Witches on Sunday they will have the best 2nd placed record and will make the semis

We will do our best to beat the pussycats at the showground but dont put your life savings on it!

Hmmm, not sure. If 'Boro win you'll have a 100% home record plus a 3-point away win. Sheffield have a 100% home record plus a 4-point away win. Surely 4 points trumps 3 points????

Im not offended by you questioning the math but may be by being labelled a Boro fan :D

Average match points 9 ÷ 4 is more than 13 ÷ 6

So 2 big fat away zeroes trumps 1 in the loser column

In local press that the changes are not likely to take place before the Berwick fixture.

Interestingly Broc Nicol is now in the Uk.

So how about Broc Nicol for Gravensen.   

And Kai Huckenbeck for Lasse Bjerre.

Huckenbeck did state at the start of the season that he was not interested in riding UK this season but people can change their mind.

Huckenbeck was blocked at the start of season to ride at Edinburgh wasn't he ?

Grajczonek didn't ride for Sheffield in 2016, do you mean 2017?

Add to this that has been posted that "current" averages apply & Josh G has a current PL converted to 8.49 for the Championship. Any change made is "like for like" rider plus any amount remaining up to your 42.50 Declaration limit. If changing more than 1 rider, you do not add the averages together of said riders to make multiple changes.

Just throwing it out there - Jonas Jeppesen released by Somerset, if we were thinking of team changes could he be an option ? What average would he be in Championship ?

Due to a mathematical technicality Jeppesen's 4 point Premiership average converts to a Championship figure of 5.20 :D

Had a diffrent conversion figure been used it wouldve been different

A bit like using average match points as opposed to points won minus points lost :P
