Great start for the Jags in the pre-season friendlies.
Home and Away wins against Whitby Vampires represents a confident start for the Jags septet with a 16 point aggregate victory.
Marcus and Zoltan both bagged 5 ride full maximums Marcus achieving the perfect score at Whitby, and Zoltan at home. Trotters was sold from number 4 Matty Bird had a career best paid 9 at home and Metal Micky also grabbed paid 6.
A wet and difficult track at home this week caught out the Jags in their final pre-season friendly. Three falls for home riders cost the Jags the win on the night. Zoltan was again imperious at home. 10 rides 10 wins at hime so far the only positive really.
In the away leg the top three performed admirably but there was no real backup from the other four in a lack-lustre display with Trotters struggling at number 3.
Extra training scheduled this week before the KOCup against Estuary. A tie we expected to win, however on this showing its anybodys.
Better performances against Estuary in the Cup Prelims are hoped for this week after extensive testing and practice.
The Whales are ready for their first KO Cup meetings for a number of seasons, meeting up with ex Meganoites Thompson and Trott makes it a more attractive tie, but the reality and joy of winning is the greatest fillip for us. COYWhales!!!!!!!!!!
