This is my view of positions

Sheffield - VERY STRONG THROUGHOUT

Newcastle - A SURPRISE PACKET

Somerset - HEAT LEADERS & AFTER A FEW MEETINGS BWD

Redcar - IF THE LOWER ORDER KICK IN

Eastbourne - HOME ADVANTAGE IS HUGE

Leicester - LOOK SOLID

Glasgow - NOT AS STRONG AS PREVIOUS YEARS

Berwick A LOT DEPENDS ON JAKOBSON & ETHERIDGE

Scunthorpe- COULD PROVE PEOPLE WRONG

Edinburgh - LACK OF TOP END POWER

Birmingham - LACK OF HEATLEADERS

 

Not sure how Somerset will bring BWD in after a few meetings, Covatti will up his average and the two pointers wil, still be a minimum two even if there averaging 1.5,  points limit is still 38 I believe?

And a further problem is

16.3.3   A rider in a Team's declared 1 - 7 at the end of the previous season and not included in that  Team’s new season’s initial declaration may not be subsequently re-introduced into that Team

 

from the 2018 Rulebook

For whatever reason, you didn't quote the whole rule.    Final sentence is "without the express permission of the Management Committee"

As Wilson-Dean has been put on the sidelines through no fault of his own, but by Workington closing, a request to reintroduce him at Somerset would probably be granted.

But on the other hand, would they want him?

I intended too quote the whole rule, cut and paste error on my part. Would the MC use its power - well that is pretty much impossible to second guess

Another way to look at it....

This is a Championship side - BWD wasnt in Somersets Championship side last year as there wasnt one!

PLAY OFF CONTENDERS

Is it only me that I can see no point of the "Play offs" were they not introduced for the benefit of Sky ref. the Elite league?

The Championship "Play off" winners won't be getting promoted the following year, so whats the point!

I would rather see an end of season K. O. Cup.  

I've said it before but I think the promoters have taken their eye off the main event,  I think we the supporters want weekly entertainment. The Promoters put all their efforts into winning maximum league points by any method with entertainment & good speedway not top of their shopping list......

What about bringing the old silver helmet match races & meaningful second half racing back ( they were the good old days )
