Presumably Stobarts won't rush out and rebrand all their $uperleague trailers at pointless cost so I dare say sightings will continue for some time yet.

The Stobart TV programme said it cost £4k do brand each vehicle, so I reckon you'd be right

Glad this post has resurfaced.

I finally saw my first one today, on the A638 near South Elmsall. Widnes livery.

Just spotted a truck on a round-a-bout on the A78 when coming to work, only got a glimpse of it as I was turning off but the rear doors of the trailer were advertising the Magic Weekend, not sure if it was for last year or this but assuming it's for this year I would have thought this was better advertising for us i.e. advertising an event that people can buy tickets for rather than the game in general. Would be good to see the Challenge Cup Final, Grand Final and World Cup advertised this way

Don't complain, we're still getting the advertising and don't even have to have a main sponsor!

Yeah, maybe we should be fair and still call it the Stobart SL for a couple of years, whilst sort of, slowly but surely, fading out the printed name over time?

I saw the Widnes one on the A19 just south of Middlesbrough on Sunday, and the Leeds one has just gone past the office here in Newton Aycliffe. They're still out there.

That's me.  I'm done.

Don't think I ever logged my sighting of a toy one in the main toy shop in the centre of Buxton at Christmas.

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.

Last year I must have achieved my highest ammount of driving on the motorways and yet I have never seen a Stobart's lorry with a rugby league motif. Would have been easier to have had a sign by each motorway advertising Super League.Afriend of mine is a coach driver in S Wales doing regular holiday tours and has yet to see a rugby decorated Stobart lorry, made me resolve never again to look out for one.

I did my lowest amount of motorway driving last year and saw loads of them! Saw another one on Friday afternoon too.

Luck of the draw, I guess
