Toyota has announced that it will partner with the Rugby Football League (RFL) to become the governing body's official car supplier.

Under the three-year agreement, the manufacturer will provide a total of 50 Auris hatchbacks to the organisation. The fleet will be used across the RFL, mainly by performance and development staff, with cars being driven by the likes of England head coach Steve McNamara.

RFL commercial director James Mercer announced: "To link up with such an established brand is a real coup and I look forward to working closely with them."

Stuart Ferma, Toyota and Lexus Fleet Services' national sales manager, said the carmaker was "delighted" to have been chosen by the RFL.

The Auris lineup includes petrol, diesel and full hybrid variants. It will be expanded with the introduction of the Auris Touring Sports in July - which, like existing models, is built in the UK.

Mr Ferma concluded: "The RFL is supporting British workers with its choice of car."ADNFCR-2576-ID-801606515-ADNFCR
