Sam Wood is set to clean up as a Hull rival – and roommates

SAM WOOD is a man behind enemy lines with Hull KR hosting Hull FC and whatever happens he will clean up.

That’s because he’s doing it at the apartment near his rivals’ floor anyway, which he shares with fellow actor Darnell McIntosh.

Rovers star Wood and FC ace McIntosh will go head-to-head when Rugby League’s Big City Derby returns at a packed Craven Park.

Off the field they live together, having both moved to East Yorkshire from Huddersfield, and a win for the east side of town could benefit a company.

He may be a red and white, but he’s deep in black and white territory – and he’s been struck by how fierce the rivalry is in some unlikely places.

Some things won’t change though, as Wood said: “Darnell is terrible at cooking and cleaning and all that stuff.

“I am a cook and a cleaning lady. I always clean up after him.

“But he’s a really solid flatmate, I really couldn’t ask for better. He’s really helped me settle in here and we keep work at work, that’s the best way for me to work.

“We joked that we didn’t speak to each other on derby day and that the loser lost, but we prepared professionally and once we get home it won’t be rugby anymore.

“To be honest we just chill afterwards but I probably won’t clean. If Rovers win I’ll probably get some takeaways!

“I’m behind enemy lines from the moment I walk through the door. I drive past Hull FC grounds on my way to training.

“A couple of the neighbors have accepted that I’m a KR player and Darnell is an FC player. They brought some t-shirts to have them autographed, but there was no mourning, just some friendly banter.

“I’ve even had people tell me, ‘Good luck for Friday but not too much as I’m a Hull FC fan!’ I could even sit in a sauna and poke someone!”
