The three rugby league fans who are travelling to Perpignan for the Rugby League Road Trip charity adventure have received support from Salford.
Daniel Ince, and his two friends Beck Phillips and Mike Dalton, planned the journey as a way of raising awareness and funds for the charity Rugby League Cares.
They have been visiting various Super League clubs with the aim of getting the players from every club in the competition to sign the vehicle.
After gathering signatures from Huddersfield, Leeds and Wakefield in recent weeks, the three travellers have now added the autographs of Salford’s squad to the livery of their old 02 plate Renault Scenic.
The trio is set to arrive at Hull FC later this week, too, with other clubs lined up for the next few days to participate in #InkOnMetal, as the adevnture has been named.
The adventure is set to begin in earnest on April 4, when the three Widnes fans set off on their journey to France.
They will arrive in Perpignan the next day, hoping to have raised plenty of cash for Rugby League Cares along the way.
“We’re getting closer to our set off date and can’t wait to get going,” said the three lads.
“The support we’ve received from Super League clubs and fans has been great but we need it to continue so we can raise as much money as possible!
“What we’re doing is a bit different and we look forward to meeting as many fans as possible along the way and maybe getting a few people interested that don’t often watch rugby league.
“We aim to raise £3000 which would make a difference but with the help of rugby league fans we could raise even more and this money will positively affect the lives of thousands of people involved in rugby league across the country.”
The car will be on show at this Thursday’s game between the Red Devils and Widnes Vikings at the AJ Bell Stadium.
The three travellers will also be there to answer questions, and pose for pictures with the car. Fans can also write on post-it notes, outlining where they would like the money raised for Rugby League Cares to be spent.
Those post-it notes will then be stuck to the car for the evening, as a way of highlighting the work that the charity carries out.
