    Surely Panthers/ Eels will sell out.
    Interesting to see how the Warriors go, crowd wise, with their new membership plan.

    i am in Melbourne for work and shocked at the amount of Maori and indiginous jerseys that I’ve seen about. Hopefully it can be closer to 20k.

    I’m always a fan of playing in Melbourne because anything that spreads rugby league gospel is good.

    But this event feels like it would have been perfect for Newcastle

    Really think Brisbane should get a home game to kick off the season. A 35,000+ crowd is always good.

    Anyway,
    Storm should hopefully push 20,000
    Newcastle could be anything north of 24,000
    SCG will be an interesting test. If pushed hard, 25,000 would be amazing
    Warriors seems about right. Again, with their big surge in memberships, they could get a 17,000 baseline.
    Tigers sell out?
    Cowboys crowds could be down, but very expected given recent affairs there.
    Penrith sell out?
    Titans, who knows?

    Were the Roosters compensated for moving games to the SCG? Although they’re the premiers, playing on an oval ground would affect their crowds

    I'd like to see the NRL average 30k crowds this year.

    18k would be a more realistic goal. 20k average would be insane good.
