While I appreciate you wish to hide this aspect of your past life from your wife (we all have secrets), please note, if your wife finds out during the sponsorship/pr process, she can withdraw the application.
You must also put yourself in her shoes, that is, she is undertaking to support you for three years and has to repay the Government if you end up in welfare. If she finds out mid way, she may deem you not worth the risk, if its an issue that she feels she cannot deal with to salvage the relationship.
The best bet is to apply for the police clearance and first review what it says. Then you can go from there.
I wish you all the best.
