How can it be in the best interests of the sport to let the strongest team in the league break the rules to strengthen whilst the likes of Buxton, IOW and Stoke struggle with understrength teams? #Shambles

They are one of the strongest teams around but they could improve there team even more if they wanted to.Also Hume/Bacon were not always big hitters they were given a chance at Birmingham what was Hume's average at Rye House 3.70ish ? Shanes comes into replace JPB so like for like really.

So what was stopping Stoke etc. signing Shanes?

The fact that he has a Championship average over 4.00 and is therefore ineligible.

Max Clegg replaced Ellis Perks last year & he had an average over 4 (about 4.3 I think). It is in the initial Declaration where the over 4 applies.

Yeah it’s a league starting average. Shanes was not over 4.00 at the start of the Championship season, even though he is now.

Incorrect nothing stopped stoke or anyone else just got over the fact nothing is wrong with the signing . Out of interest what team so you follow if you follow any team at all .

That's not correct. It's simply an astute signing within the rules (Art 19.7).

The haves and the have nots will always be the case.

In the past promoters would have gentlemen’s agreements about who ride where and avoid an imbalance but it still occurred.

I agree that Eastbourne and Birmingham have vested interests in running challenging teams as probably Lakeside would do if they were still in this league.

I see Kent as having the right balance and say good luck to Mildenhall who have harvested an exceptional group of talented riders.
