Husband and wife will be rivals at 6pm tonight
11:30am Saturday 5th October 2013 in Wolves news
A WOLVES fan has found himself deep behind enemy lines as his household prepares to do battle on the pitch tonight.
Rob Sutcliffe is from Padgate but now finds himself living in Wigan with his wife 35-year-old Jaclyn, a staunch Wigan supporter.
The 37-year-old said: “We have always wanted a Warrington Wigan final and we always get to the semis or final or they do.
“This time we have got it but it’s daunting.
“We are travelling down together on Saturday and we are going to have Warrington flags and Wigan flags on each side.
“My step-daughter Jess said if we ever get divorced it will be about the rugby.”
And their rugby differences played a big role at their wedding with a cake split in the team colours and they have personalised Sutcliffe team shirts.
Rob and his son 13-year-old Josh will be sitting in the Warrington end while Jaclyn and 15-year-old stepdaughter Jess will be in the Wigan end with stepson Robert also cheering them on.
But the latest addition to the clan - Ava Grace - is definitely a Warrington fan.
“We had an agreement which ever team next won a cup she would support them,” added Rob. “And she was born last year just before our Challenge Cup win but it was touch and go as she could have become a Wigan fan if she was born a little later.”
And the couples’ predictions?
Rob: Warrington to win 29/22
Jaclyn: Wigan to win 28/18
