As part of Tetley's 'Proper Yorkshire' promotion, Leeds Rhinos' Jamie Peacock, Matt Diskin and Gareth Ellis, have come together to back the campaign by showing that they really are 'Proper Yorkshire'! The Yorkshire-born trio were flying the flag for the white rose county just as the Yorkshire Post has launched a search for the 'Most Yorkshire Person in Leeds', with the winner of the title due to be announced on Yorkshire Day on 1st August. Castleford-born loose forward, Ellis, has just been voted Rhino of the Month for June following some great performances last month, while, Leeds lad, Peacock, and Dewsbury's Diskin have also played their part in the Rhinos position just behind St Helens in the Super League. Gareth Ellis, said: "Yorkshire folk are extremely honest and friendly, and always wear their hearts on their sleeves, which is demonstrated by the support we get at the Headingley Carnegie Stadium. The very fact that 'Yorkshire Day' actually exists proves how passionate us Yorkies are about the county, so it's great to see that Tetley's is embracing it too. "Jamie, Matt, myself and the other Yorkshire lads are really proud of our roots, and hopefully we'll push forward further to knock those Lancastrians, St Helens, off the top of the Super League to top off a great season!" Darran Britton, Marketing Director for Tetley's, commented: "On behalf of Tetley's I'd like to thank the lads for their support in showing their true allegiance to Yorkshire and our 'Proper Yorkshire' campaign. I wish them and the rest of the Rhinos squad all the best for the remainder of the season." The Tetley's 'Proper Yorkshire' campaign is being run across hundreds of pubs, clubs and bars within the Yorkshire county boundaries and will culminate in activity in the run up to Yorkshire Day on 1st August 2006.
