  1. So Tom Perry can manage to guest for Peterborough today, so why isn’t he in this meeting? I still think Perls is favourite but it’s not that clear cut but Kinsley & Kemp are going to be there or thereabouts. Best of luck to Morley and Verge and of course Ben is a double winner so you cannot write him off!

    Play-off final

    Congrats to Leicester on the title win.
  3. Wallinger has put on fb that he was asked to do the NLRC and said yes but last night (!) was told that he was no longer needed.
  4. Questions do need to be asked about why was he asked? I do not believe that every single employed NL rider was asked before him. But also questions need to be asked of Wallinger as to why he thinks he can morally take the spot when he’s unemployed and been sacked more than once this season yet there other riders with teams who are not involved.
  5. He doesn’t have a club so he shouldn’t be in regardless of his average. But his 2019 average is 4.32 and that’s lower than Ledwith, Marson, Brooks, Priest, Spooner, Harris, Bailey, Andrews, Campos, Terry-Daley, Embleton, you get the picture...
  6. Why are Hume, Stoneman & Wilson out? Wallinger hahahah he doesn’t even have a club!
  7. So the BSPA rules that Clegg must ride for Newcastle and not at the NLRC despite their own rule book saying he should be at the NLRC

    KOC FINAL Wednesday 23rd and Friday 25

    Ridiculous! This is a cup final that’s been known about for a few days now. That’s a challenge meeting that only got announced yesterday and GB could pick anyone they wanted!

    Play-off final

    The problem with your suggestions S4K, is if the league title is decided in say August then doesn’t it make all the other meetings anti-climatic? There’s be terribleness attendances for NT fixtures in September when your club has had an awful league campaign and there’s no optimism left. An alternative would be to actually start the whole campaign at a reasonable time at the start of April and have regular meeting at throughout the summer without long gaps between home fixtures. Then all the competitions can conclude at a reasonable time to allow the play-offs and cup finals in early September. Then use late September in case of rain-offs and October can be season finale one-off meetings like Cradley’s Hammer meeting, IOW ran a 3 team tournament and Kent would run one this year if they hand time!
  10. Totally agree. But what would the punishment be? A 28 day ban throughout November?!

    Morley hasn’t had the season that Perks has, but around Central Park is there really anyone better?

    2020 NL Season

    Yeah and Hopwood & Clifton were on low averages and Silver loves Bowen so they weren’t leaving. It’s almost like other promoters thought the prospective team would’ve been too good!

    2020 NL Season

    Yes that definitely happened cos didn’t they have Ayres and Stoneman that year or something? But then the average limit dropped lower than expected.

    Leicester NL 2019

    Is that the Premiership play-off final date?
  16. Georgie Wood was offered a place in this meeting but has a prearranged grasstrack meeting already in his calendar. So Verge is the Warriors’ second representative and, of course, has knowledge of the track having been a Stags rider. Looking down the field, lots of riders have called this home or done many practice/amateur meetings there.
  17. It’s back! Same rules apply as previous years and as apply to the promoters. So build a team upto 36 points and the highest end of the season average wins. Only x2 2.00 men allowed remember and only 2 riders from each club are allowed in your team. Previous results were: 2018: 1st Hunters, 2nd SKJ & 3rd CUFC_Brummie 2017: 1st Eagles69, 2nd Islander15 & 3rd SKJ 2016: 1st Halifax Tiger, 2nd John Leslie, 3rd Turn Two

    NL Fantasy Team (for fun!)

    Yes I am using official averages used for team building purposes and they only include league meetings.
  19. You can’t rule out Kinsley, he’s very fast round the EWR and beaten some good names.

    NL Fantasy Team (for fun!)

    Yep all the top 6 teams had Gilkes & Palin but a lot of others went with 1 or both of the Thompson’s.

    2020 NL Season

    I wouldn’t be surprised if we only saw 3 or maybe 4 of those at this level next season.

    22/09/19 N.L.RC Leicester.

    Remains to be seen how many big name riders are missing, seeing as Stoke are getting 3 representatives!
