WOLVES HOST REIGNING CHAMPS

Sunday June 23, 2019
WOLVERHAMPTON host reigning Premiership Champions Poole on Monday in their first home meeting for almost a month (7.30).

Parrys International Wolves were beaten 51-39 by the Pirates in Dorset last week - a result which extended the Monmore men’s run to five without a win.
And they’re anticipating another tough test on their return to WV2.
Poole include Nicolai Klindt, who won the league title with Wolves ten years ago, and are hopeful No.1 Jack Holder will be fit to take his place after picking up a groin injury last Monday.
Either way, Parrys International Wolves skipper Rory Schlein says he and his team-mates are going to need to be at their very best to get back to winning ways.
“We need to start getting some good results behind us, that’s the only way of getting out of a slump and we cannot lose at home again - it is as simple as that,” Schlein said.
“Poole are a solid side throughout though and we need to ride the way we know we can to win, that’s for sure.
“We know what needs to happen; it needs to start now, certainly sooner rather than later and a good win would get the boys back on a high.”
With Ashley Morris struggling with a wrist injury, 2016 title winning Wolf Max Clegg has been placed on standby at reserve for the hosts.
There will also be an appearance by the Big Wolf Band ahead of their new album launch this week.
WOLVERHAMPTON: Sam Masters, Kyle Howarth, Jacob Thorssell, Nick Morris, Rory Schlein, Ashley Morris/ Max Clegg, Luke Becker.
POOLE: Jack Holder, Richie Worrall, Nicolai Klindt, Josh Grajczonek, Brady Kurtz, Nico Covatti, Nikolaj Busk Jakobsen.
