WOLVES v SOMERSET, PREVIEW

Sunday May 13, 2018
WOLVERHAMPTON team boss Peter Adams wants his side to get back to winning ways against World Champion Jason Doyle's Somerset at Monmore Green on Monday (7.30).

The Parrys International Wolves have won all three of their home fixtures so far but were well beaten last time out as they went down 57-33 at Belle Vue in the Knockout Cup.

And while Adams sees no reason why they can't maintain their unbeaten home record, he has warned his side that Somerset shouldn't be taken lightly.

"People look at teams like Somerset and think we should roll them over with our eyes shut," Adams said.

"I can tell you now that that is not the case and won't be all season long.

"There'll be no such thing as an easy match in this year's Premiership and I'm expecting a difficult test on Monday.

"Somerset have already run a couple of teams close away from home and already have a couple of consolation league points for their efforts.

"Our riders have shown some good early form at Monmore though and they'll need to carry that on if we're to carry on our strong start at home on Monday."

Wolverhampton are at full strength with captain Rory Schlein targeting a third straight maximum at Monmore.

Somerset have drafted in exciting youngster James Shanes at reserve in place of Jonas Jeppesen who is ruled out with a broken bone in his hand.

Admission for Monday's fixture is £18 adults, £13 concessions, £7 juniors (13-18 inc.), £1 children (6-12 inc.) while kids five and under go free.

WOLVERHAMPTON: Jacob Thorssell, Kyle Howarth, Cameron Heeps, Rory Schlein, Sam Masters, Nathan Greaves, Ashley Morris.

SOMERSET: Jason Doyle, Jake Allen, Charles Wright, Jack Holder, Richard Lawson, James Shanes, Bradley Wilson-Dean.
