    Will you be doing a WJ18 4+ preview for Nat Schools? Love reading your predictions and reviews 🙂

    • Hi Grace,

      Thanks for your feedback. I will certainly take a look but my previews depend very much on the standard of entry in each category i.e. coxed and coxless. Thank you for your kind words, it is feedback like this that motivates me to write.
