Jets hope to strike Gold on way to semis; AMERICAN FOOTBALL.
Cougars signed up several high-profile players in the close season, including former UCLA Bruins quarterback Kevin Craft, and Jets secretary Adam Etheridge admitted: "I didn't see that coming at all.
"I was concerned that our game at the Butts might have proved to be a dead rubber but this result guarantees that we'll still control our own destiny if don't get the result we need away from home.
"We've been fantastic in Coventry over the years - we've won all of our European games and we've only lost three games at home over the past six seasons - so I'm confident that we can progress to the semi-finals."
If Jets do win Group C they will face arch enemies London Blitz, who took control of Group D with a 68-6 rout of Amsterdam Crusaders. The only team capable of thwarting their progress are the Valencia Firebats, who Jets beat in 2008 en route to the Eurobowl quarter-finals.
