Talking about advertising on the side of vehicles, check where they put this woman's image in relation to the two rear wheels. :D

Spent 4.5 hours on the M6 today and 20 mins on the M5
Total E Stobart vehicles spotted on the whole journey - more than 100
Number of Super League branded vehicles - 1
I also saw 1 advertising findmadeilenemccann.com (or similar)
Not a good return I thought

Might have missed this in the earlier stages of the thread, but how many Lorries carry the SL brand and how many Stobart Lorries are there in the total fleet?

I've waited to see one ever since the announcement and haven't.....until late Monday night. We were traveling south, just outside Glasgow, I saw 2 Stobart SL lorries within the space of 2 miles, both south bound. It was dark but I think one was Hull and the other was Leeds.

Leeds, 6.37am, M62 slip-road j18 (Middleton), heading east.

1 more and then I'll call it a day for reporting.

As a side note, I wouldn't be surprised if Stobart did something similar with Olympic athletes.

Saw 3 on the A1 on Friday - Hudds,Widnes? and Catalans. Saw Wigan on the A1 today

It's weird, the last 2 times I've driven up to Leeds, I've seen 3. The furthest South I've seen one is Hudds on Friday outside Biggleswade (South Bedfordshire)

Leeds - A14 Market harborough
With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Had it broken down and the driver was in the middle of the road asking everyone else to donate 10ml of petrol?

Out of interest had a quick look at there website, no mention of us, wonder if it'll stay that way or if they'll incorporate a logo or two boasting about the fact they are the headline sponsor of Super League.

As of this morning I've now seen all the team trailers.
