saw two Stobart trucks on the Liverpool/Manchester section of the M62 4-2-2012.One was Eorl Crabtree the other one was a Salford player did not recognise him tho.I was front seat passenger.Even so it would be difficult to take photos as they/we pass at speed but Crabtree was one.

I hear the Catalan Dragons are sending their Stobart branded trucks around Huddersfield in the hope to capture some of the fanatical support in the area.

Instead of support your local team on the back it reads "pretend your from Perpignan" .

I heard the back of Bradfords truck says "Come watch a Non Super League strength team in a Non Super League Standard Stadium" :ph34r:

Wooooooah Don't shoot the messenger, that's just what I heard off a guy who has a friend who plays the Wigan Warriors Mascot. :unsure:

And besides, our League isn't sponsored by trucks, it's sponsored by a chain of shops selling things at stupid prices.

Tell me about it.

I went in my local Cooperative last night to be greeted with the most outrageous offer I've ever seen - Two 12" pizzas for £6 when individually they cost £2.49.

as i posted on my post as Donny Saint i would imagine it would be hard to get photo's of them lorries as they would be going at speed as well as you/us in our vehicles.I was front passenger in our car near Ferrybridge.I think the only way to spot one of them lorries would be the rear view of one on the move. On the way to the M62 but it was the normal livery but that took some doing.I think we need to be in an service area to spot the odd one on spec.As said i saw two on the M62 Liverpool/Manchester section Eorl Crabtree & Stephen Wilde on the side never saw the back of course.No way could anyone photo them.

I think they should have a photo of Ben Cross on the back doors, to make sure that any following vehicle maintains a safe driving distance.

Yeah you'll be landing some real blows on Paris after the Catalans wiped the floor with your team today. I bet he's gutted.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

I wonder if thats on an agreed route with Castleford or one thats never likely to see Castleford!

Driven a smidge over 500 miles this week, mainly motorway and only seen one Stobart lorry and that was pulling a Tesco trailer, I fear I may have bought to much into how often you pass one sold in the marketing speal of the sponsorship deal - glad I'm not a spotter would be heavy going ticking off that list!

I drive from Hull to Sheffield and back 5 times a week. On each journey I pass or see at least 10 Stobart trucks. Haven't yet seen any branded Super League ones though yet.

I saw 22 Stobart lorries on a 150 mile stretch of the A1 on Friday but no SL ones.

Saw about 2 yesterday on the way back, but I could have driven past loads and not seen them through all that fog
