Staff from Specsavers at Middlebrook Retail Park have met stars from the world of rugby league at an exclusive event held to celebrate the company’s sponsorship of the match officials during the Rugby League World Cup 2013.

Players unveil new kit

Kevin Juste and Nasima Hinglotwala from the store joined home nations players Ben Kavanagh, Scotland; Lloyd White, Wales; Tyrone McCarthy, Ireland and Jon Wilkin, England as they unveiled a new kit modelled by Super League referees Ben Thaler, Tim Roby and Phil Bentham.

Store manager Kevin says he was delighted to be invited to the high profile launch: ‘Nasima and I enjoyed the opportunity to meet top players and referees and celebrate this sponsorship, which builds on Specsavers’ existing sporting pledge to help the experts to see.

Helping the experts to see

‘Technological advancements in recent years have certainly helped match officials but we’re glad to do our bit where we can to help ensure that they get the best possible support to do their job. ‘The north west is a heartland for rugby league so we’re proud to be involved in the sport.’
