Still cannot understand why we are so bad around Somerset, especially as our Nos 1 and 2 used to race there. Over the 2 legs, Somerset still massive favourites for me

Brady said the track is completely different now to when he rode for them..

Why?

Surely Garry May will realise the Poole riders think that the inside line will be the place, thus then changing the track to make the outside more favourable?

As i said, and i wont say it again, our boys will not miss a trick this time.

"Think the question Poole fans should be asking is the team good enough this season, indivually ? If the answer is yes then where has it gone wrong in only finishing 4th.  Could it be that all is not well in the Poole camp.  Certainly a season of underachieving thus far. "

 

I think Swindon, Wolves and Leicester would like to underachieve on the same scale!

4th???? Last time I looked Poole had 44 points and Belle Vue 40 points. Even if Belle Vue were to win at Swindon and get all 4 points, they would have to win by 41 points to get into 3rd place above Poole on race points!!!,

I doubt it, worked last time and gives their riders a massive advantage.

Seems there is some passing tonight.

JD withdrawn after a fall. Hope it's just a slight knock.

Sounds as though JD's injury is his hip!  Garry May said afterwards that he will be fit for monday - but then nobody would expect him to say anything else at this stage?!

Just probably some bruising so a precautionary withdrawal.

I really can’t call this, it’s either going to be like the last tv meeting against both sides where Poole struggled to get there set up with a similar score or Poole could pull off a shock. Either way I will be there to cheer the boys on!

Poole have run every year since 1948 the only  year they did not compete in a league was 1957 , even  then they run a series of open meetings including two National League matches under the name of Rayliegh Pirates

I think we got to keep it close and keep it to eight points to win the second leg and that will be tight exciting though !!!

Tricky one. But speedway riders have been walking tracks since time began, well almost ;) Kurtz knows the track. Must of walked it many times. He should know where the grip is going to be. If theres nothing on the outside, maybe  retard the timing a tad or up the main jet to make the bike a bit flatter to grip of off the start ? If it's gate and go.

Brady has to perform if we are to stand a chance.

Been very poor on his last couple of visits to OTA.

Can't call it on aggregate. Could come down to an exclusion or something like that.

It could come down to weak links and both teams have possible weaknesses, Somerset have Covatti and Summers, Poole have Worrall and Kurtz.
