"Owned", sounds like slavery to me. I thought that was illegal. And he is a former Lion.

If Sam wants to ride for Leicester rather than Edinburgh then I'm sure he will. Riders have the power these days. Seems to happy and settled at Edinburgh though, so I would be surprised if he moved.

Douglas isn't riding in the Championship next season.

He's doing Poland and Wolves only.

Not Sweden? Is Poland and Wolves going to generate enough meetings for him though? 

Is it top league Poland?

Well If flagrag is correct, it's more than one former Lion, so could be Richie Worrall and Jason Doyle! 

Scotty also looking for a championship team.

 

Les Collins? John Titman?

It all got too much for him I think after a spell with Coventry, which is a shame as I remember him pulling off a hell of a ride in the final heat of the reopening match to secure a draw.

For me there isn't a rider in the modern era that I associate with Leicester, probably because they've chopped and changed leagues so much. Hopefully, if they stick with Speedway, don't get binned off and don't become too good the twins will be those riders

Interesting team and Tom is a mate of mine but depending upon how the other teams shape up it cud well be too early for him.

Also I would only go with one of the Twins, which one? Depends upon how the rest of the team is built.

Obviously depends on the rules for 2022, but under current rules neither Dan or Joe could be the "rising star" for 2022!

What prevents them from being RS? Under the present rules neither are too good, too old or too experienced?

I'd guess that Dan becomes  a 3* and Joe a 2* , ( but that's assuming the rules evolve gradually, they could easily change completely.)
