SKIPPER Rory Schlein starred in Wolverhampton's impressive 54-36 home win over pre-season favourites Poole.

The Aussie ace scored a 15-point maximum as the Parrys International Wolves eased to another hefty victory for a second week running.

It means the Monmore men are unbeaten in their opening two Premiership fixtures and despite his own individual feat against a strongly fancied Poole side, Schlein was quick to praise his team-mates.

"These have been two solid wins against Rye House and Poole with two awesome team performances," Schlein said.

"Each one of the boys has shown some really encouraging, positive signs so far and it's been a great way to start the season.

"Just like we said against Rye House last week, we were expecting a tough challenge from Poole, but credit to the boys for the way they all rode again because it meant Poole didn't cause us too many problems at all.

"There was some great racing again tonight and the boys never knew when they were beaten.

"For myself, of course it's nice to score a five ride max - especially as I couldn't tell you exactly the last time that happened but it's been a fairly long while trust me!"

Schlein reeled off five classy, intelligent race wins, including an important one in heat nine after Poole had nominated No.1 Brady Kurtz as a tactical substitute.

For the second week in succession, Aussie ace Sam Masters dropped just one point to the opposition as he again reached double figures.

Local lad Ashley Morris was in fine form at reserve once more and was unbeaten by a Poole rider in his first three rides.

Jacob Thorssell chipped in with two race wins on his way to eight points while Kyle Howarth battled his way through sickness to also contribute a race win after mechanical gremlins in the first.

Cameron Heeps ended his night on a high winning his first race of the season while Nathan Greaves deserved more points for his gutsy efforts down at reserve.

It was another convincing performance from Wolverhampton who limited a strong Poole side to just two race wins and one heat advantage.

The Parrys International Wolves travel to Rye House on Wednesday before hosting King's Lynn at Monmore Green next Monday (April 30, 7.30).

WOLVERHAMPTON 54: Rory Schlein 15, Sam Masters 13+1, Ashley Morris 8+2, Jacob Thorssell 8, Kyle Howarth 4+1, Cameron Heeps 4, Nathan Greaves 2+1.

POOLE 36: Brady Kurtz 12, Josh Grajczonek 7+1, Linus Sundstrom 6+2, Kacper Woryna 4+2, Peter Kildemand 4+1, James Shanes 2+1, Mateusz Szczepaniak 1.
