Did anybody notice how dismal the crowd turn ups were last week? It may have been that only a few games are televised here - but there seemed to be far too many open seats in the stadiums for the Super 14 games, especially considering the new ELV's are supposed to make the rugby a more exciting spectacle. I never got to see the Crusaders game, but with the weather as it was a few empty seats would make sense. The Cheetah's stadium is undergoing some construction, so that can also be excused coupled with a relatively low hype game. But for the Shark tank to have so many gaping seats at their opening game at home was astonishing to see. Especially considering they were finalists (and winning finalists up until the last minute) of last years comp. I figured there would be more support. The Waratahs game also had a number of seats as well as the Blues Chiefs game. Any suggestions/comments?
