Given that they ran at a loss last year, riders wage demands may hold the key to who and who doesn’t get a team spot.

A team without Widders ? I suspect not. Plus Wally was dreadful on the Island so switch those two, drop Edwards out and bring Lawlor in. Fruit loops maybe but he can certainly ride the island. For me that side would be right up there next season and if it was Marson for Verge then even stronger.

I would be happy with keeping 6 that ended last year and replacing Wood with someone upto 7.87. But the options are limited and it becomes Edwards (who I suspect is in demand), Jack Smith, Connor Coles, Connor Bailey (presumably at BV), James Cockle, Paul Hurry, Jon Armstrong, Dan Greenwood or Ben Hopwood (!). So realistically only the first 3 options are probably viable and they depend on money.

Warriors website says Connor Coles is their first signing for 2020.

Yep! I think the other 6 are easy to guess and I’d be happy with that. A quality number 1, a pairing of decent reserves that should be able to beat most others and a middle order with some improvement potential.

With Connor Coles in the bag how about either of these 2 options.

1. Ben Morley.           9.18

2. Chad Wirtzfeld.    3.81

3. Connor Coles.      7.43

4. Chris Widman.     3.79

5. Joe Lawlor.           7.91

6. Connor King.         3.67

7. Macauley Leek.    3.00

Total.                          38.79

 

or this.

1. Ben Morley.            9.18

2. Chad Wirtzfeld.     3.81

3. Connor Coles.       7.43

4. Connor King.         3.67

5. Tom Perry.             8.50

6.Jamie Bursill.         3.13

7. McCauley Leek.    3.00

Total.                          38.72

All riders are still available I think as have not seen them in another 1 to 7.

Macauley Leek confirmed. I expected him back at Mildenhall but more than happy with him on a false 3.00 average but for injury last season. Hopefully we still see King & Wirtzfeld as the other reserve and number 2. Then that’s a handy bottom 3!

Captain Ben Morley is back again with the Warriors,,,,,,,Sadly not as yet a Championship place,,Kent will surely be kicking themselves later for signing Rob Ledwith instead of Ben who would have been a much bigger scorer on a similar average...Their loss..!

somebody mentioned Tom Brennan on Twitter not having an NDL place, would be handy for him to ride for IOW and average may fit?

No difference between the two really.... Ben has had lots of chances at CL and never progressed. Its not a loss
