Good news and agree that Tetley's is a good fit for the sport. We had the Stones Bitter Championship for many years which was a similar fit.


And the Tetley's Super League which was even more similar :D

I thought it was tea!

Still. Good news. Hope it hasn't been sold for a 6-pack and a beer mat.

Are Leeds still a bit miffed about the brewery closure? Not that they'll ever win the Cup...

Yer can say that again,although tetley's aint been the same since about 1963
but you and I weve been through that and this is not our fate.
So let us so let us not talk falsely now.

Aye - that's an interesting one! Either way, there's a good chance they'll get a home game, and maybe even a televised game!

Great news for the game. I am now hopeful for a fair few other announcements over the next few weeks. Hopefully James Mercer will be a bit of a RL hero in a month or so.

Ye Gods, what is the world coming to?

Delighted with the sponsorship though and i love the retro logos. Very Tetleys as i remember it.

Apparently Leeds Brewery is becoming very popular and growing .It will look amusing if they ever got the CC sponsorship gig
but you and I weve been through that and this is not our fate.

Maybe it was unneccessary stubbornness, but finding sponsorship is tough in the current financial climate. My personal prejudices find a beer company significantly more acceptable than a loan shark or gambling company.

And compared to Budweiser, Heineken, Carling, etc., at least we're not linking our wonderful game with a nasty fizzy lager! :D


I agree, a real British bitter, and like the game itself, of a Northern origin expanding nationwide. As an aside, even in the USA the Budweiser type beer is taking a beating from the darker, almost British beers like Sam Adams, from the Boston Beer co. Maybe they can sponsor the USA national team in the WC and the Boston 13's in the US league.

As predicted by myself last week:)

QQ HOW MUCH as i have heard it is less than half of what they were receiving before.

Great to have all these deals however it is unusual for NO MENTION BEING MADE OF THE AMOUNT BEING PAID IN CASH:(

CM

Is it unusual these days?

I find it very rare that the amount of cash is mentioned tbh.

Tetleys is a really good fit for RL sponsorship if you go by the bitterness of most of the people on here
