Thought it would be. At least it leaves us with a little bit to play with if any rider doesn’t come up to expectation.

Richard Lawson completes the line up. 

Top 4 team with that signing in my opinion, I am liking the balance of that team. It will be hard to beat them at home.

Shame it wasn’t Musielak. Different class as a rider to watch.

Very good, well balanced side though.

Favourites.

1. Pedersen

2. Lawson

3. Holder

4. Howarth

5. Grajczonek

6. Morris

7. Kurtz

 

Absolute solid side. Should go unbeaten at Owlerton, and pick up a few points on the road. Surely need to put Lawson at 2 as he'll win a lot of heat 1's with his gating ability.

I guess Musielak is missing the UK thrn, as he was the obvious signing there. Lawson is ok, but Toby is quality on his average.

Tigers will still do well though.

£4000

So (if correct) that's £8000 to be found each home meeting to pay him for home and away matches?

At £20 to get in that's 400 extra fans a week, more if less than £20 to get in..

And 500 when you take VAT on admission into consideration. .

Presume a big sponsor must be involved to cover a fair chunk of that? Or is the TV money being handed over to the No1 like it did in the Sky days?

Can see the novelty factor kicking in for the first few weeks but not sure an extra 500 per meeting will be sustainable when the novelty wears off to be honest..

Nice to see someone try something different though.  Hope it works out...

You're saying an extra 400 people but if they didn't sign Nicki they'd need some form of rider at number 1 anyway so that's not really true. He might be double what you'd pay another number 1 so therefore 200 extra people would pay for him

Squall, Steady said at the last STAARS meeting that Kyle would partner Nicki at number 2.

Yes he did but I think that's a better call to have Lawson at 2. Kyle needs to up his game because his last 2 seasons have been less effective than previously but that's probably been down to injuries.

At the moment they`re individual riders. it remains to be seen if they gel as a `Team`     Hopefully

they`ll hit the ground running and get some early confidence.  Don`t think they`re  a bad bunch to say 

that they`ve been assembled from scratch !
