Rory Schlein targets Wolverhampton Wolves title joy

Sport | Published:

New boy Rory Schlein is looking to 'hit the ground running' as he makes his Wolverhampton debut against Rye House at Monmore Green.

The experienced Australian comes into the side alongside fellow new signing Mark Riss for their encounter with the SGB Premiership newcomers.

Schlein is delighted to have been handed his return to the top flight by the Parrys International Wolves and is keen to get off to a winning start.

"I'm just grateful to Wolves for giving me a chance, and I'm ready to hit the ground running on Monday now," said Schlein. "I think the changes are very positive and aggressive to show the rest of the league that Wolves want to hang on to the title. With Riss coming in at reserve, we look pretty handy from one to seven. You know what Freddie (Lindgren) is, he's a GP rider who is a quality performer and Sam (Masters) is a great rider who probably has the potential to get to the GPs in the future.

"Then you've got guys like Jacob Thorssell and Kyle Howarth who are on fire this year, so the team is looking good. Hopefully we can get off to a good start with the new team by getting a win against Rye House then just march on from there."

The BMR Rockets bring a wealth of experience, with British trio Edward Kennett, Chris Harris and Scott Nicholls joined by new signing Ricky Wells.

Both sides will be at full strength after their recent additions as Wolves aim to maintain their winning home record.
