Saw the Widnes one on the M62 on Saturday on the way to HULL KR and this was quickly followed by the one with all the mug shots on the side.

Just spotted my first Stobart Truck. Bradford Bulls near Weston Super Mare.

Having finally seen one in the flesh it is clear the trucks look like advertising for Sky Sports rather than Rugby League, and that the scarcity of them destroyed the opportunity for this to have been a great value piece of marketing.

saw the widnes one on the m6 preston friday afternoon

What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss
It's only two humans being.

I saw loads of them when the deal was active, mostly up and down the A1


I went to Oakham down the A1 a couple of weeks ago and saw three in a relatively short journey.

I've seen more trucks in the last 2 weeks than I did all season!

that is honestly the truth!
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.

I saw that on Sunday - reasonable size depot at Newark (you can only just make out the top of them from the A1 though) and have seen plenty near there.

Seen a Hull truck heading north on the M74 in Scotland this afternoon as I was heading back to sunny Cumbria. Funnily enough out of all the trucks I've seen I can only remember seeing one that was going in the same direction as me

Statistics, my dear Watson.

If you use "should of", "would of" or "could of", you are a moron.

I'm no mathematician and I'm sure there are plenty on here that could work out a formula. Basically trucks on the other carriage way are passing you at their speed + your speed.
Example if you are doing 80mph and they are 60mph you have a 140 mph passing speed. If the same speeds are used on your side of the carriage way then it's 80-60= 20mph so you would expect to pass 7 times more trucks on the opposite carriage way to your own.
I will now stand back whilst those people with maths skills point out why I am wrong.
