Dacia #FlairPlay Community Programme Launched

Dacia #FlairPlay Community Programme Launched

Betfred Super League and England stars Sam Tomkins and Kallum Watkins have launched Dacia #FlairPlay, a new community programme for Rugby League clubs providing opportunities for grassroots players to win professional training sessions.

The robust and reliable car brand Dacia, proud partner to the Rugby Football League, is encouraging community club players around the country to share their most skilful manoeuvres for the chance to earn a place in the Dacia Skill Showroom, where the best entries will be judged by an elite panel to win a professional training session for their club.

Any player who thinks they have what it takes to make it into the Dacia Skill Showroom and ultimately impress the judges, has seven weeks to film and upload their very best move to Dacia’s Facebook page or Twitter, tagging in @DaciaUK, to be in with a chance of winning.

To inspire players to get involved, there are examples of great #FlairPlay from the professionals already uploaded into the Dacia Skill Showroom, www.dacia.co.uk/SkillShowroom.

Joining Tomkins and Watkins to decide on the overall winners are Rugby League legends, Kevin Sinfield MBE, Paul Sculthorpe MBE and Kylie Leuluai. Between them, they will decide on the most impressive skills and which community clubs will host a very special day for their members and local communities with an open training session led by players and coaches from one of the 12 Betfred Super League clubs.

Leeds Rhinos centre Kallum Watkins said: “There’s plenty of talent out there and, whether it’s a move they’ve been perfecting for years or an outrageous challenge between a group of mates at the end of training session, I can’t wait to see what #FlairPlay people have in the locker.”

In addition to the professional players and coaches, Dacia will be providing each of the winning clubs with training equipment, auction items and marketing support, that will not only make sure that the training session is a massive success but that the club can continue to encourage #FlairPlay for years to come.

Ed Preston, Dacia Communications Manager, said: “As a brand, Dacia is always looking to unlock possibilities and for the passionate rugby league players and fans so what better possibility is there than the chance to be trained by the professionals on your own pitch?

"The #FlairPlay competition is a great demonstration of our proud support of community Rugby League and we’re really excited to see it roll out over the course of the season.”

Dacia vehicles have built a reputation as being spacious, robust and reliable all whilst providing exceptional value for money. There are four vehicles in the Dacia range – the Sandero small car, Sandero Stepway crossover, Duster SUV and Logan MCV estate.
