If Ellis rides for both sides the result becomes meaningless and the 'sport' is confirming itself as the joke that many outside it believe it to be

The rider should have said I am already booked, sorry. I know riders like bookings but on the occassion, for the good of the sport, he should tell Lynn they are too late.

The showpiece event, the pinnacle of the league season, live on tv in front of a huge audience, and we have a rider turning out for both teams.

How can this possibly be allowed to happen? It is beyond a joke. Surely such a scenario should never be allowed to happen for the good of the sport. The presenters are going to have fun explaining that one away.

If Iversen had got injured last week and they had booked Ellis, there’s no way on gods earth I would want a rider in my team who rode for the opposition in the other leg. The rules should have covered this.

I know riders need to earn a living and take bookings, but this is the final, not a cup meeting or even just a league meeting. It comes across of a footy match with mates over the wreck. One team loses a player when his mum shouts out teas ready so one lad swaps sides to even it up.

How can the sport be taken seriously when this happens? It’s ruined the final.

Quite agree i would rather both teams went with r/r, this would probably put us at a disadvantage but would look better for the sport on tv.

Why don’t the two club just come to a agreement that Ellis rides for Stars both legs and Morris rides for Pirates both legs.

Morris can't ride for Poole at Lynn. Average to high. Other way round will fit though.
