Packs of Tetleys

48 posts in this topic

Anybody seen the new (I think) packs of Tetleys beer in the Supermarkets? I've just seen them dotted around Tescos with a picture of 4 Players and the Challenge cup on the front of the box. Brilliant exposure!! I was that excited I had to start a thread.

I'll have to buy some. I've bought XXXX before just because RL was on the packet and I always search out Kingstone Press Cider. I support those that support RL.

it isn't even proper tetleys any more, and their tinned beer was ghastly anyway.

 

I aint buying #### just because it says rugby league on it

Definitely and highlights the points made in Martyn Sadler's thread about RL fans supporting the games sponsorship deals. I do the same (plus try to avoid non-tax paying organisations)!

in our local ASDA there is a range of British and Irish lions red wine on sale. I'm pretty certain that at the very least it will be passable, although I wont buy it because there are other passable red wines on sale.

I'm not going to buy something I don't like just because it sponsors or edorses rugby league. There seems to be a narrow view of what rugby league followers like, and what they will send money on  People are willing and able to pend money on decent quality merchandise and the people marketing the game at club level and above dont seem to realise that.

Good to see (just as long as I'm not expected to drink the cat's p###### that's in the box ;) )

Is that what you say at the alcoholics anonymous meetings after you introduce yourself...

Noticed that one of the union lions sponsors are First Cape Wines.

They ain't exactly top end of the market and could be viewed as the Tetleys of the wine world. They are also targetting the lower alcohol range of wines.

Good to hear. Wiltshire Rhino buying XXXX because it had RL connections is martyrdom well beyond the call of duty. Respect.

Did you get up out of the wrong side of the bed today l'ange? No one is asking you to buy something you don't like but if you do like something and the prices aren't too dissimilar then go for the one that sponsors RL if that's an option. Now say it slowly. I'm H-A-P-P-Y.

right as rain DP weekend coming to a convivial close

I just like classy stuff that's all

 

UK Rugby League merchandise is invariably cack and low end at club level and above

 

 

the only bit of mercandise I possess from Rugby League is a limited edition stoneware pint tankard commemorating GB v The kangarood from the eqrly nineties. It's a very nice item.

I don't like Tetleys - even when it was meant to be good. But it isn't quite as bad as you are making out.

Glad to hear all's well at mysterioso towers. I understand where you are coming from though with regards to quality. I actually like some of the gear they've come up with for the various competing nations at the WC but one thing really prevents me from buying any of it. Why oh why do they have to put the nations' name across the shoulders on the back of the shirt? I know which nation it is. It says so on the badge on the front.

Bought some for the Exiles weekend camping trip. Went in for Speckled Hen, which was out of stock, so got Tetley's instead. At least it was the normal stuff and not smooth flow rubbish. Not as nice as Speckled Hen obviously, but I managed to finish the box of 123 off over the weekend.

This is because I am a man of taste and discernment

I always thought the rhyming slang for Tetleys was "nothing shi**er".

Like I said its passable

Tinned tetleys and ersatz tetleys are passable right enough but in a whole different way
