A Matter of Opinion....Sarah Regan....12/05/2002
Sarah is a Hull Vikings fan.
The Vikings are many people's tip for the title - can they do it?
Definitely. The top five is the best in the league and Lee Smethills is one of the better reserves. The key is obviously winning matches away from home and I think we can do that. As long as we don't lose many at Craven Park then we'll do it.
Would you like to see the Vikings back in the Elite League one day?
Not in its present form as there aren't enough teams. If clubs like Sheffield and Workington were moving up then it may be a different story. While Eric and Malcolm are in charge I think we'll stay in the Premier.
If you could sign one rider for the Vikings who would it be?
My head says Tony Rickardsson but my heart says Billy Hamill (yum, yum!).
Predict the top five in this year's GP series.
1) Rickardsson 2) Crump 3) Adams 4) Hamill 5) Loram
What's most important a Vikings win or good racing?
Both are equally important. It's difficult to enjoy a meeting your team loses but I don't want to see us win every race from the tapes (well not at home anyway!). A nice balance would be to win every meeting 50-40 with a couple of 'from the back' 5-1's to finish!
