MAN DOWN AGAINST TIGERS

Sunday June 06, 2021
WOLVES will be without skipper Rory Schlein for their clash with Sheffield at Monmore tomorrow (7.30).

Schlein, who is due to retire at the end of the season, suffered a leg injury in a Championship meeting at Glasgow on Friday night.

Thankfully scans revealed no broken bones but he has a problem with his thigh. His four programmed rides against the Tigers will be covered by colleagues under the rider replacement facility.

Parrys International Wolves owner Chris Van Straaten said: “At first there was concern he had suffered a broken leg but thankfully that’s not the case.

“It’s a shame to be without Rory because we need to be on our toes against Sheffield, they’ll be relishing the prospect of racing at Monmore.

“We had a good meeting at their place on Thursday when we just missed out on a point, hopefully we can get the home win to get three more points on the board. I’m expecting a good meeting.”

Schlein himself can’t put a time limit on how long he’s likely to be out at this stage.

He said: “Glasgow didn’t go to plan. I spoke to the surgeon this morning and he has said nothing is broken, but I have a mass hematoma on my upper right thigh and an internal bleed in the thigh muscle. Definitely a sore one.

“Thanks to Jake Rose for staying up and to the Glasgow Speedway medical staff – they were brilliant.”
