    Every man and his dog knew we would struggle with getting a crowd to the SCG over the 3 years but the club took the hit as they still wanted to play in our traditional area.

    That new stadium should be fire, especially for the corporates.

    Interesting they got a bigger crowd against us on a Sunday night last week. You’d think this game would be a bigger draw. The scg is not a good ground for rectangle sport we can judge the roosters crowds properly when they have the new one up. I mean if I were a fan I’d go every week because this team is sooo damn entertaining.

    They probably got a bigger crowd last Sunday night because Monday was a public holiday...

    As for the dogs crowd who can blame? this team has been uncompetitive for years. not just struggling but simply uncompetitive. We need a strong bulldogs as they are potentially the third or even second biggest Sydney team in terms of support if they are competitive.

    True that’s a factor but you’d think a fellow Sydney team would draw more plus it’s a Saturday night, Sunday is also a day off for most.

    I could understand that if they had a fan base there that traditionally turned up in good numbers. The numbers are unimpressive. They should have used the opportunity to expand.

    I bet we won’t be able to count the bump in crowd on here though. If roosters didn’t have Anzac Day and a shiny new stadium...

    Phil Gould was saying the other day they'd remain based in Australia for the time being but will take selected games to Auckland. The risk is that a flare-up could see them in quarantine mid-season.

    I think there was a lot of consideration for the corporate side of things in the decision.

    I would have liked to seen a few more taken elsewhere but to be fair the club had plans for NSO and Perth but COVID ruined that. Additionally they were a home team for magic round in 2019 and are again this year.

    I agree though that a couple more at Gosford this year wouldn't have hurt.

    I actually cant stand the idea of the Roosters trying to take over central coast. I just cant see the connection. The Knights should take over the CC.

    Eels expecting over 25000 today. Encouraging fans to pre-purchase online to avoid queues at the stadium box office.

    Yeah I think the Knights should take a couple games there and call themselves the Newcastle CC Knights.

    Could be issues getting people in. Or Covid restrictions with hills meant they can only sell so much

    nope
    Penrith was @ its pre covid capacity of 21K on friday night

    there are no restrictions
    tigers members have been included in the sellout ... but haven't turned up

    the crowd might be 12 to 13K max
    very disappointing

    Ah tigers members :thinking: that would be it. LeichArdt has only two entrances so might be taking a while to get everyone in. Having said that if you’re a tigers member and you haven’t gone today of all days, why?
