Aussie racer Rory Schlein insists Wolverhampton is a “home away from home” after sealing a return for next season.

The Darwin-born star will again link up with Sam Masters and Kyle Howarth as well as Monmore newcomers Nick Morris and Luke Becker.

Wolves has been my club for the past few years in the top league now and I haven’t even thought of riding for anyone else to be honest.

It means Wolves have just two team spots left to fill now and Schlein is optimistic about the 2019 campaign.

He said: “Wolves has been my club for the past few years in the top league now and I haven’t even thought of riding for anyone else to be honest. It’s a home away from home if you like and everything just suits me down to the ground.

“Everybody gets on so well at Wolves; we know how to have a great laugh and we know how to be serious and get behind each other when we need to as well.

“I feel the new additions in Nick and Luke will really stabilise us and I think it just gives us a more all-round strength throughout matches.”

Meanwhile team boss Peter Adams said: “Rory was absolutely brilliant in the first month or so of the 2018 season with maximums left, right and centre. I think even he acknowledged that it was probably one of, if not the best start he’s ever made to a season in England.

“He was pretty solid all season long for us to be honest and it was a shame to see him finish the year on the sidelines.

“But he’s nearing full fitness again now and we know what he’s capable of in Wolverhampton colours.”
