2017 ‘Tru7.com’ Witches rider Rory Schlein successfully underwent an operation on Tuesday at Saint Cross Hospital in Rugby.

The Australian had a metal rod removed from his back due to the right side of the rod being bent which was causing him discomfort. However, the operation went well and Rooboy will return home on Thursday and is looking forward to resting over the Christmas period before starting to train in the new year ahead of the 2017 season.
