What an awesome crowd.
Then again, there's always a great crowd for the Grand Final
anyone know crowd in Fiji for PMXIII? From the highlights it looks pretty sparse
They named around 3,000
Just over 64,000 in the ESL Grand Final
Poor crowd, but not surprising since such a small time club like Salford made it, who are lucky to average 2.5-3k.
Saw a tweet saying there must be “at least” 14,000 Salford fans at the game! The Grand Final is in their home city.
I think if Leeds/Wigan/Hull etc made it they would have gotten more like 74k like usual
Off topic, however reminiscing on last week and the unbelievable very pro-Canberra crowd. Have a look at these two videos, the first from level four, Raiders side. The second from level one right next to the Roosters bays. Good watch.
needed to give tickets away like nrl?
Terrible crowd at BankWest, hope it improves tomorrow.
Triple M was offering free tickets to any one who rang up asking for them today!
This event might be better scheduled at the new NQ stadium in the future.
After the Cook Islands' boilover against Tonga, it's got a future.
My gut feeling is Foxtel wanted the Friday night start ,like their 6pm NRL one.
Either that or the NRL admin, is so bleeding dumb ,not to realise Friday night start for events like this, people are not going to get there in numbers.
The good old days when we had teh world 7as over aSaturday and Sunday ,the crowds were far greater.Interesting to see the crowds tomorrow.You'd want 25K to make up for tonight's poor crowd.
Yeah weird to be on Friday and Sat
i think i heard 12k
serves them right for being idiots and playing Friday instead of Sunday!
When I played American football in uk in 80’s when the nfl was at Wembley they used to give jnr clubs free tickets in one stand and asked the players to wear their jerseys. Made for a great sight with thousands of kids in their club colours. Nrl should have done same for this with nsw jnr clubs. Could have filled one end with kids in their colours. Bette Better than a 2/3 empty stadium
It is the wrong time of the year for this. People have been over League for at least a month. Nines should be a club, mid season thing when the NRL goes into hibernation for 4 weeks while state of origin is on. The NRL season should be 18-20 rounds. The NRL GF on the October long weekend should be the last game of RL played in the country.
10 rounds - then
4 week NRL hibernation with Origin and club nines; then
10 rounds; then
Oh dear .
So you want to kill off internation RL?
