COMEBACK KINGS WILL BE PREPARED FOR ACES

Sunday May 26, 2019
RORY Schlein is hopeful the fitness work done by modern riders can help

Wolverhampton’s returning duo hit the ground running against Belle Vue on Bank Holiday Monday.
Jacob Thorssell and Nick Morris have both recovered from injury to complete the original one-to-seven put together by the Parrys International Wolves over the winter.
They take to the track for the first time in the UK this season at the National Speedway Stadium (noon) before the reverse fixture takes place at Monmore Green (8pm).
And while coming back a few weeks into the season can present challenges for any rider, Schlein is confident his colleagues will be as prepared as possible.
“It is now the team we wanted to start the season with,” said Schlein.
“Nick will probably need a bit of time to get up to speed, Jacob has been doing some laps in Poland and Sweden but hopefully they will be flying before too long.
“The boys keep fit these days, though, and a lot can just fire off straightaway.”
Their inclusion saw Scott Nicholls depart after last Monday’s trip to Ipswich with Schlein quick to praise the influence of the seven-time British champion during his temporary stint with Wolves.
“We have to thank Scotty, we could not have asked for any more from him,” added Schlein.
“He threw it on the line like he has his whole career and that just shows what a pure professional he is.”
Full teams will take to the track in both meetings.
Wolverhampton’s riding order remains unaffected by the switches with Thorssell slotting in where Nicholls had rode from at number three and Morris taking his planned berth at number four.
PARRYS INTERNATIONAL WOLVES: Sam Masters, Kyle Howarth, Jacob Thorssell, Nick Morris, Rory Schlein, Ashley Morris, Luke Becker. Team manager: Peter Adams.
