NRL's STV average is 371K with kayoThis is straight from the Exeter onionball site that you just cited:
"The average match audience is now 119,000, up 38% on last season"
The "792k" viewing figure included the total cumulative viewers for their weekly highlights show and three games. ..
Why you put that up, God knows, but it confirmed my suspicion that you're an onionball troll trying to deceive everyone on here into thinking ruggers is bigger than it really is. You intentionally left out the average viewing audience for each RFU Premiership onionball game because it was more than 30k lower than the ESL's 150k average, which your second link confirmed.
Thank you for confirming that the English Super League is kicking the RFU Premiership's arse in the TV ratings!
Don't take my word for it. Go read the article again and see for yourself.
The weekly total audience for the ESL is 450K, compared to a poultry 358k for the RFU Premiership. The Exeter onionball article confirmed it!
"The weekend average live audience is now 358,000, which is 40% up on last year"
So you confirm that the NRL has a higher average attendance than the French onionball league, yet you think this means the latter has more prestige?
NRL matches on Foxtel average 233k per game.
NRL 233k average per game over 8 games (Foxtel Only)
ESL 150k+ average per game over 3 games (Sky Sports)
RFU Premiership 119k average per game over 3 games (BT Sport)
I don't know about you, but I think the NRL wins this hands down. Its average (per game) over 8 games is almost twice as high as RFU Premiership, which only covers three games. Three of those NRL games are simulcast on Ch9. It's harder to maintain an average over 8 games than 3. The fact NRL is doing this in a country that has just 25m people, making it half the size of England, is remarkable.
