POOLE EYE HOLDER DEAL

Poole expect 2012 world champ Chris Holder to take fellow Aussie star Darcy Ward’s place in the Pirates line-up, subject to BSPA clearance.

Poole expect 2012 world champion Chris Holder to take fellow Aussie star Darcy Ward’s place in the Pirates line-up, subject to BSPA clearance.

Ward is currently on his way to Poland where doctors in Torun will assess whether he requires surgery on a broken thumb sustained in heat 14 of the New Zealand SGP on Saturday.

The 21-year-old also picked up soft tissue damage to his knee and was left concussed after being knocked out in the collision with Auckland winner Martin Smolinski.

Holder was set to sit out British racing this season in a bid to focus on his FIM Speedway Grand Prix, Polish Ekstraliga and Swedish Elitserien fixtures. He has also signed for Danish club Outrup.

The 26-year-old still lives in Dorset and has some equipment there, although he may need to obtain some more to race a full-time Elite League schedule, albeit temporarily.

His debut would come against Coventry in front of the Sky Sports cameras at Wimborne Road on Monday night.

Poole would bring him into the line-up for 28 days while Ward recovers, meaning they could then revert back to their original line-up and reinstate the Queenslander, assuming he’s fit.

Ward is targeting a comeback in the European SGP at Bydgoszcz on April 26 as he aims to keep his World Championship aspirations alive after leaving NZ with just five points.
