Wouldn't be surprised if it was one Barr's brands, given their previous association with RL. The only obviously 'fruity' brand of theirs I can think of is Rubicon, but don't know how much of a fit that is.

Always been a sucker for the Mango flavoured Rubicon, though I've steered clear of it for a while since it is pretty much sugar + water + fruit concentrate. Mostly sugar!

Cider. Maybe having a team in Championship One from Cider country (ish) swayed it

Not heard of it, but I don't buy cider all that often. I'll definitely check it out now, though.

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.

Nice logo.

Never tried it, I drink Weston's mainly, but I'll give it a go! Great sponsor.
With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

I'm a Strongbow or Magners drinker by trade but am willing to have a few of these by way of support.

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

According to their website, their cider is available on sale at Twickers. Wonder if they'll be doing any Rugby League-branded labels, and how well that'd go down at RU HQ. :D

They're already following me on twitter, and said having a special Championships brew was a good idea and they will look in to it!

Lovely stuff :D

They're responsible for Stowford Press, I believe, which is delicious.
