    Am surprised to see that Munster only average 2600 and Leinster 2700, would have thought they'd be higher.

    It would probably be more interesting to look at the ticket prices. I know that the cheapest standing student ticket at Bath is about £16/17, but then at places like Newcastle it's under a tenner.
     
  5. The excuses from union start rolling out.....

    How is that an excuse? I'm simply suggesting another way to look at attendances by giving examples of two union clubs that I have been to. Nowhere in my post was any anti-League, pro-Union sentiment whatsoever. You're just looking for something to argue about.

    True, there is an absence of NZ RU teams, don't know why.

    The main reason for me posting it was in respnse to all the 'league is nothing worldwide' posters.

    That doesnt really compare the codes at international level

    It shows that leahue is a worldwide sport with teams in Fiji, France, Japan, Russia etc.

    But it has no International Competition.

    When was the last time anybody heard about Japan or Moldiva playing?

    League is still a worldwide sport, good international competition or not.

    The third biggest code of football in New York City aftre American Football and Soccer, i.e bigger than Union.

    Gridions played in 198 countries... does that make it a world sport?
     
  14. wigan_rlfc

    wigan_rlfc Guest

    If that is the case, yes, but you need to look further into it than that. eg, is it played proffessionally/semi-proffessionally in all of the 198 countries?

    and Unions got more nations in those lists then League by my calculations (I just skimmed it tho)

    The Bartercards team on the league list arent professional, not even semi proffesional.

    I doubt the Russian or PNG teams are either

    constructive answer there.

    That list is completely stupid. No Australian or New Zealand teams for union. If it's meant to be a comparison on the whole of league and union, well, it can't.

    Imagine if they took out the NRL figures and put the ANZ teams in... It would reverse the situation.

    That list = not valid
     
  21. Trust me, if I wanted to do that, I could say something stuff a LOT more controversial than that.
