Here are comparative lists of the biggest 125 RL clubs in the World vs the 126 biggest RU clubs in the world in terms of average crowds for 2003.



Interesting wouldn't you agree?

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.

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.

Havent Included any of the NPC teams
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.

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.

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?

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

I doubt the Russian or PNG teams are either

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

Trust me, if I wanted to do that, I could say something stuff a LOT more controversial than that.
