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!!!!!!!!!!
wandsworthrams: Silly question, are we allowed to do coaching yet?

leedsjaguars: I think coaching is done when you select your team for matches. It’s a part of the amazing form we use each week
Oct 5, 2018 16:53:39 GMT
wandsworthrams: I still use the Coaching form!
Oct 6, 2018 9:45:22 GMT
leedsjaguars: Coaching can be done as part of the excel form, which makes it easier to track too. In my first season I didn’t do all my coaching because I forgot, now the form reminds me.

wandsworthrams: Thanks Daz, I've sent you a text.

bottesfordbullets: Can we still use the weekly excel tactics sheet ?
Oct 11, 2018 20:30:54 GMT
leedsjaguars: I’m assuming not, it would take a lot of work to update for new teams and riders and as it wasn’t widely used last season there seems little point in expending lots of effort

wandsworthrams: Hi, is there anywhere I can find the ages of my Juveniles that are not in this season's Jaunt as I can't find the information on the Database? Thanks

kingslynnlightning: Terry, we decided a couple of seasons back not to give ages to riders not in the JJ so we didn't lose riders without them having a go in the JJ. And so we didn't have to keep finding loads of names. They will be 14 when they start in the JJ.

wandsworthrams: Thanks for that Rob. I asked because I wondered why my Juvenile with the best average wasn't in the Jaunt itself and wondered if it was because of his age!

kingslynnlightning: This anomaly will happen from time to time Terry. Morgan and Ingman were in the JJ last year so stay in this year. However Smith rode really well in the Junior 4TT hence his high average. When he does get into the JJ he will start with a nice high average

leedsjaguars: Does anyone know what we do this season regarding rider coaching, I have no idea now we aren't using the forms anymore. Seniors and Juniors.

Admin: Darren it's in the rules,main team 2 riders or same rider twice goes to Andy & Fred.....Juniors 6 coaching slots goes to Rob
