WOLVES BACK TO ORIGINAL PACK

Tuesday May 21, 2019
WOLVERHAMPTON will be back at full strength with Jacob Thorssell and Nick Morris primed to return to action and “heroic” stand-in Scott Nicholls making way.

The Parrys International Wolves have been without both since the start of the season, running rider replacement for Morris who suffered a wrist injury in Poland before turning a wheel for the Monmore men.

Nicholls was drafted in while Thorssell recovered from a hand complaint but the Swede’s comeback means the end of the line at Wolverhampton for seven-time British champion.

And team boss Peter Adams confirmed Morris, an onlooker at last night’s 46-44 defeat at Ipswich, would also be hitting the comeback trail, meaning Wolves will be back to their original one-to-seven for 2019 in Bank Holiday Monday’s double header against Belle Vue (noon away, 8pm home).
“Scott knew right from the start that he would be a temporary replacement for Jacob while we waited for him to declare himself fit and now he has,” said Adams.
“It was a tough decision because Scott’s performances for us have been heroic but Jacob will be back in the team for the two meetings against Belle Vue and so will Nick Morris.
“Nick is off to Poland on Wednesday for some practice laps and tells me he is 100 per cent certain to be fit for Monday.
“Rider replacement is always difficult to cope with, it puts a strain on man and machine so we are happy to be back to a full complement.
“Everyone was very pleased with our team declaration when it was originally made and now we have the chance to see it in action.”
