Wolverhampton boss Chris van Straaten admits he had his doubts over signing “outspoken” Rory Schlein this year, but had no hesitation in bringing him back for 2018.

Schlein was drafted in as a replacement for Adam Skornicki and starred as the club reached the SGB Premiership Grand Final.

But CVS admits he had been reluctant to sign the Darwin-born man. He said: “Rory is an outspoken character and his reputation as such had spread throughout the sport.

“That’s the reason why we were reluctant to sign him and, perhaps, the reason why we passed by the chance to sign him at the start of last season. But we decided to give it a go and after a successful time working with him, I can honestly say it’s a ‘yes’ from me to working with him next season again!

“He’s a quality performer. He also became very solid with the Wolverhampton supporters and we are pleased to welcome him back to the club.”

Schlein joins Kyle Howarth and Sam Masters as confirmed starters for next season with the club still waiting to make a move over which one of Freddie Lindgren or Jacob Thorssell to retain at the top end.
