Stobart sponsorship deal & truck spotting

390 posts in this topic

I was hoping this would count as the Bradford lorry...

But then I finally saw one on my way home last night, a Widnes lorry. It was heading westbound as I was heading east on the M62 just on the Pennine border.

So I was satisfied with my one cherry popping spot.

Until this morning, when going to work, probably around junction 18-19 I saw a St Helens lorry on the M62 heading the opposite way to me.

Yay, you wait ages for one and two come along within 24 hours.

But there's more, barely had I time to make the mental tick when a Bradford lorry followed barely 2 or 3 minutes later.

Even in morning motorway light they are easy to spot.

:smile:

That'll do pig, that'll do.

Am sat on a National Express coach from London to Leeds - currently at Leicestershire and have passed 3 Stobart trucks, none of which bear the slightest mention of rugby league.

Well done everybody.

Surely the RFL should of insited that all the trucks should either display full super league images or at the very least partial images of super league I.e on the back doors or the cabs.

Well then, if you haven`t seen any in a 3 hour journey away from the RFL heartlands then its obviously massively failed. Might as well paint over them all with adverts for Hula Hoops.

Now standing at 5 Stobart wagons with no mention of RL and just one with any SL gubbins on it.

Am at Sheffield so hopefully more in the heartlands.

Stobart have 3500 plus trailers out on the road..... Remember not all have been done yet with the sponsorship deal

So 1 in 350 is your chance of seeing one wink.gif

Also, it's only on the chilled trailers....some people want everything.

Just seen a Leeds and Wigan one on the M62 on the way over to Castleford.

The Leeds lorry was leading until it didn't quite grasp the sliding lanes maneuver, thus allowing the Wigan lorry to exert full speed and pass by on the outside :biggrin:

Yes. They should also have 'insisted' that Stobart paid them £4m.

'Rugby Eddies' have been accredited ten regular Eddies and up to 100 yellow cars.

Saw my first one today driving through Old Town, Swindon. I think it was a Widnes one. I was so excited I want to shout from my car "Look! A Rugby League lorry! In Swindon!" to all the other drivers and pedestrians.

It would of driven past my house too.
