Poole claimed second spot in the league table after completing their regular programme with an emphatic 53-39 victory over deflated King's Lynn.

It was the second thrashing the Pirates have delivered out to the stars in the space of a week and the four league points picked up have moved them above Wolverhampton in the standings.
A superb four ride maximum performance from number one Chris Holder underwrote this victory that had good points coming from all quarters to give the Pirates a much-needed confidence boost.
The hosts were kept alive in this fixture by the contributions of Troy Batchelor and Robert Lambert, that pairing closing out the Stars' season with a 5-1 from heat 15, by which time Poole had done more than enough to secure the league points they had gone in search of.
Poole now await news of their semi-final opponents which will be revealed once Belle Vue have made their choice of opposition when the fourth qualifying team is finally determined later this week.
