PREVIEW: WOLVES v PETERBOROUGH

Sunday April 07, 2019
WOLVERHAMPTON officially launch their 2019 campaign on Monday as they host top-flight newcomers Peterborough in the Premiership Supporters’ Cup (7.30).

Parrys International Wolves include four faces from last year’s side in Sam Masters, Rory Schlein, Kyle Howarth and Ashley Morris.

Winter signing Nick Morris will have to wait a little longer to make his debut after being ruled out with a wrist problem.

But there will be first full appearances in Wolves colours for seven-times British Champion Scott Nicholls and American Champ Luke Becker.

The youngster admits he can’t wait to race at Monmore for the first time and is looking forward to the year ahead.

“Even just talking about going out there for the first time, the hairs stand up all over my body,” Becker said.

“But as soon as I get to those tapes, the nerves and the excitement will move to one side and race mode will kick in.

“It’s going to be a huge night for me and it’s another huge moment for my career too.

“I’ve got several guys who I can go to and ask different questions and who can give me advice and they already seem a good bunch to be working with so I can’t wait to race at home for the first time.”

Peterborough include former World Cup winner Hans Andersen, ex Australian Champ Rohan Tungate and former Wolf Lasse Bjerre.
