Wolves Cup FeverThe Wolves are excited at the prospect of taking on Challenge Cup holders and fiercest rivals St Helens on Saturday 23 February in the 5th round of the Kellogg's Nutri Grain Challenge Cup. Even though the game is to be televised live by the BBC, the Wolves are still expecting a massive crowd.Adam Jude, Director of Community and Marketing commented, "The Wolves record Super League crowd was against St Helens and that match was live on Sky as are the majority of Wolves and Saints matches. Saints are a well supported Club away from home and usually for a game at Wilderspool they bring a following of 4,000 fans.""Although it is not an all ticket game, I would urge fans to purchase a ticket as soon as possible to avoid any disappointment. Saints have said that with their strong following they will out-sing and out-number the home supporters.""Following on from last season's two classic encounters against Saints at Wilderspool I am sure the Wolves fervent supporters will be out in force to cheer the New Breed of Wolves to victory. Even Saints Coach Ian Millward concedes that the Wolves are this year's 'Dark horses' and possibly Super League's toughest team!""I am confident that the possibility of a historic cup upset against our traditional rivals will ensure that Wilderspool is packed and that the majority and noisiest supporters will be ours."Jude enthused, "I am positive all Wolves fans will want to be there when the Saints go marching out!"
