In my opinion, the two meetings that drop off Cook's Rolling average were 5R 10pts and 5R 13 points.

So what are you paying you 19 quid for? Its not a sport and it's not very entertaing.   Do you pay good money to watch rubbish films at the cinema on a regular basis? 

I don’t pay £19. Netflix at £5.99 for films and the rest is a licence fee for a public service broadcaster that lacks scrutiny and does what it likes which I cannot seem to get out of paying. When speedway bothers to put out seven man teams on a weekly basis and not Mr R/R to make up a team and runs from late March to October, uses local talent who grow into a team and have honed their craft and are not gate and go merchants, puts on individual meetings such as the 16 Lapper, then I might contribute to the coffers of the local promoter but given that this sort of entertainment is now confined to history and decent promoters no longer exist I seem to be saving money.

Kings Lynn only had the 1 meeting on or prior to the 23rd May which, in my opinion, are his only qualifying rides for his new average so only drops one meeting from 2019. His 2nd & other meeting was on the 27th May which comes in to his change of average for the 1st July.

And 5 years later he was beating Ivan in a run off at Wembley. What a day that was...

And by the time you saw him ride he already had a glittering moto- cross career behind him and didn’t take up speedway till he was about 29

I know, unbelievable really. How good would he have been, if he'd have started speedway earlier in his motorcycling career.

He was very good anyway, a credible World Final Performer.

When you see some of the names on the honours lists year after year it is a travesty that Tiger has not joined those ranks.......
