    That's about the average.

    Christ, the cheapest seats at this game are almost twice as expensive as the most expensive ticket for a SR game in NZ

    SR attendance figures are significantly higher than ours.

    As has been said, SR average is about 20k, the prem's is more like 12k.

    SA teams are the only ones to be averaging that

    Its what happens when you put "money men" in charge of sport.

    Attendances have been a lot better this season - some teams don't quite have stadiums of 20k seats either. Apart from the likes of the Kings/ Sunwolves attendances have been pretty good. Notably SA do put the averages up but NZ's attendances are pretty good considering the population.

    Nah it's not.

    Their first home game was at Palmerston North hence the low first crowd.

    8264
    15386
    16103
    22223

    =15494

    and if you take out that 1st game it's 17904. We get more at NZ derby matches logically (like last night) but 15386 isn't bad for a crowd in a game against one of the worst teams and Welly's history for poor turnouts. Definitely getting back to crowds we use to get.

    That's bad. I got my tickets for the SR final last year for $55 each (and that was the 2nd best category).

    Would take being 7 points behind.

    Bring
    slater on @6
    Harrison on @9
    Soonish
    Croft and Mulipola later on.

    Expect a pack of
    1) Mulipola
    2) Bateman
    3) Cole
    4) Slater
    5) Kitchener/Barrow/Fitz
    6) Croft
    7) Thacker
    8) McCaffrey

    To potentially finish the game

    For a team with ambitions to be the biggest club in the world, and to have their own indoor arena... Bringing 500 odd fans to a euro semi final is truly embarrassing. There are bigger crowds at schoolboy games in some places.

    Haha, I love when teams refuse to use the ball in the scrum trying to get a penalty and then get penalised themselves.
