What I want to know is, if this team is called Gladiators ... why do they have as a logo, a Greek helmet? :blink:

And why didn't they accept my Roman coins to buy a programme last night? :D

The problem is when the weaker reserve thinks he's the better reserve or the people around him are telling him that. 

I had a Little Henry but had to keep swapping it for a Dyson.

Eventually the Little Henry quit on me coz it didn't want to 'suck up' anymore!

:rofl:   :rofl:

I think it's 

1. Howarth (G), 2. Bowtell, 3. Barker, 4. Palm Toft, 5. Andersen, 6. Edwards (G), 7. Ruml (G)

Not sure on riding order but something like that.

Probably because in Ancient Greece they had Gladiators.

Epic fail. Gladiators were Roman, not Greek.

Next you'll be telling me sauerkraut is British, the French love scones with jam and cream, and paella is a traditional Russian dish. After all they are all European, basically the same people,.

That's his season done then I suspect. Such a shame as he was pulling up some trees before his crash. I hope he recovers fully and swiftly; the very best of luck to Dan

Can anyone shed light on Kennett’s absence? Is he actually injured? If, as some have suggested on this forum, he may have just been used for one meeting to gain a guest facility, the situation stinks. Fair play to the Plymouth riders for their performances to date, but they are using guests for someone who is unlikely to sustain his current average if he were to continue racing. At what point does the guest (or R/R) facility get reviewed or expire if he is not actually injured?

Think they gave an update last week that he's got specialist this month maybe? Plate came through skin in his arm I think.

With Gilkes highly unlikely to be back this season and Atkins allegedly chucked it can they run 3 guests all season?

There has to be a deadline for their guest facilities surely?
