Sponsored Video: Rugby League Extraordinary

We are now well into the Super League Playoffs to decide who becomes the 2012 Super League Champions, week 2 is over for the 8 teams that made the play-off and we are down to just 4! This weekend sees Wigan Warriors Vs Leeds Rhinos on Friday night, followed by St Helens Vs Warrington Wolves on the Saturday in the semi final match-ups. Then it is a short wait for the 2 winners when on Saturday October 6th the Super League Playoff final gets under way at Old Trafford.

To celebrate the run in to the finals, a special video and mini site ‘The Rugby League of the Extraordinary’ has been produced to document just how ‘extraordinary’ these players and teams really are in a spoof of the famous comic and film. A number of players feature in the video including Huddersfield Giant & England prop Eorl ‘The Hulk of Huddersfield’ Crabtree pushing a skip full of scrap metal, and other players such as Sam Tomkins and James Roby.


It seems spoof films are the way to go for many brands at the moment and it is becoming quite a trend. But does it really work? Check out the players and their ‘super human’ powers in the film below and let us know what you think. It would be interesting to know exactly which parts are special effects and which are limited…!

And don’t forget the 2012 Super League Final will be held on Saturday, October 6th 2012. Also keep an eye on the #extraordinaryrugby hashtag on twitter.
