Speedway – Tuesday’s Inside Line with Shaleman

Speedway in Britain has largely been marooned for nearly a week but finally the Elite League got back into action last night.

Poole went to Wolverhampton and won – just showing what we all knew (feared?)... that this year’s Pirates are every bit as good, if not better, than the team that beat Eastbourne to lift last year’s championship.

The league table means little at the moment with some clubs hardly ridden at all, while the Lifestyle Eagles already have eight matches completed.

But, however, you look at it, Poole are the team to beat and – weather permitting – it surely will not be long before they emerge at the top of the table.
