After travelling between West Cumbria, Warrington and North Wales every week since the deal began, I finall seen a trailer at Burton in Kendal services last Thursday. Ironically it's the first time I've stopped there on these journeys

Saw the Widnes one today with Cross? on the back outside ...GLOUCESTER! Possibly the furthest spotted outside the Heartland?

Nah, nowhere near! :tongue: I saw one nr Newport heading to Cardiff on the M4 the other night. Sadly it was Kevin Sinfield. The Scottish sightings would be a fair distance away from most SL clubs as well...

Saw a Widnes one (again) yesterday on the A1 near Blyth and the Wakey one as well on the A43 between Stamford and Corby.

Today saw a five on the A1 coming up from Peterborough to Wakey. Widnes (again!!!) Leeds, Cas, Wire and the one with all the club captains on.

Do Widnes have more trucks than the rest of SL as I keep seeing theirs.

Salford City Reds truck spotted on the M5 near Gloucester this afternoon. And yet again the Widnes truck. Can't remember if it was the M5, M42 or M1.

I reckon O'connor has had a few more Widnes trucks done, as it's the one I've seen most. <_<

Finally saw one yesterday after about 2000 miles of motorway driving. This one (Widnes) was on A3095 in Bracknell.

That's good. If it was crawling then lots of people will have seen it, some of them for a very long look!

Seen Wigan on A19, Cas on A66, Leeds on M74, FC on A1. Saw Broncos as well but can't remember where.

Week before last I saw Catalan and Leeds both around Sheffield/Rotherham on the same day they were playing on Sky. Which was nice and neat.

Saw Bulls one at Odsal, but Big Chief I Spy says that doesn't count.

The "captains/not captains" trailer this morning M62 eastbound on the way down to queueing traffic at Brighouse.

This now completes the set.

Been a good week of sleddie spotting for me. Seen Widnes twice on the M56 & M6, Hull KR twice on the M62 and Catalans hurtling up the M74 at Crawford. The latter also had "Magic Weekend" all over the back - which was nice...

It's an easy kick for the lad but, as we say in Rugby League, there's no easy kicks.

Bedfordshire is something of a hotspot for seeing the branded lorries. Driving south along the M1 today and saw the Widnes one coming along in the opposite direction on the Northants/Beds border. A short time later I saw the Leeds trailer on its way between Luton and Milton Keynes.
