Now that the Stobart sponsorship is over I wonder how long the trailers will carry the Superleague logo.
I saw one last week but it seems to me that I haven't seen as many as I used to see.
I wonder who will be the last to spot one?

I'd expect them to be about until the trailers are either sold on our need refurbishment.
Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

Aye, it'll be a while I'd have thought.

The Stobart programme on Channel 5 said they cost about £4k each to do!

I've made a couple of trips up and down the M6 in the last month or two and seen loads of these. Hardly saw any when the deal was actually live!

Didn't see a single one on the road when the deal was live but at least I saw the Huddersfield one on the way back from East Midlands Airport recently.

Seen more on the M74 travelling to Glasgow in the last couple of months than I did on the M6/M56 earlier in the season when going to South Warrington

Most of the Stobart trucks I've seen have been hauling Tesco trailers.

Was always nice to see one pop up in places when you're away from home. Saw one in the south-west earlier this year, which made me feel closer to home.

Travel to Southampton and back on a weekly basis from Hull and always see 3 or 4 on each trip (normally on the A34 for some reason).

Saw the Hull FC one last night which was nice :-)

I saw the Wigan one on Sunday as well, probably a bit earlier on the same journey, on the M1 northbound near Milton Keynes.

Every one I've ever seen has been on the A34 - my record being 3 between Chieveley and the M40

Saw the Hull and Widnes ones on there just yesterday
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

The amount of sightings in that area is probably due to the proximity to the Stobart depot at Crick.

Lets not forget, Featherstone Rovers is a RUGBY club.
