West Australians to 'break the record'
Monday February 06 2006
O'Meara sets the challenge
RugbyWA chief executive Peter O'Meara has thrown down the gauntlet to West Australian sports fans urging them to help break the Australian record for a Super 12/14 crowd attendance.


The Western Force will play the Brumbies in its long-awaited debut in the Super 14 competition on Friday night at Subiaco Oval.

The Perth-based team already boasts Australia's biggest membership base, with more than 21,000 paid-up supporters.

Now, O'Meara wants those local sports fans who haven't joined up or bought a ticket to Friday night's game to get on board and help break another Australian Super 12/14 record.

"The Australian Super 12 crowd record is 42,600 at a game between the Waratahs and the Reds in 2004," O'Meara said.

"Wouldn't it be fantastic, if - on our first Super 14 outing - we could break that record," he said.

"It would show the traditional rugby powerbases on the eastern seaboard that the new home of Australian rugby is in the west."

The Western Force/Brumbies clash on Friday night will kick off the new Super 14 competition, with the New South Wales Waratahs and the Queensland Reds set to do battle the following day in Brisbane in a match expected to draw a crowd of 40,000.

O'Meara said a crowd of 31,000 was already assured for the Western Force/Brumbies game but he urged the undecided to get along to help break the crowd record and show their support for WA's team, in its debut.

"And it's not just the rugby," he sad. "We'll have plenty of exciting pre-match entertainment, both in and outside the stadium, to really highlight this historical moment in WA sport."


Lucky I got my tickets a long time ago :bana: :whip:

Waratahs team:

15 Sam Norton-Knight, 14 Wendell Sailor, 13 Lote Tuqiri, 12 Morgan Turinui, 11 Peter Hewat, 10 Tim Donnelly, 9 Chris Whitaker (captain), 8 David Lyons, 7 Phil Waugh, 6 Rocky Elsom, 5 Daniel Vickerman, 4 Will Caldwell, 3 Al Baxter, 2 Adam Freier, 1 Matt Dunning.
Replacements: 16 Tatafu Polota-Nau, 17 Benn Robinson, 18 Alex Kanaar, 19 Wycliff Palu, 20 Stephen Hoiles, 21 Shaun Berne, 22 Daniel Halangahu.

I thought they would have used Norton-knight at fly-half and Hewat at full back

Now that is a great Brumbies backline. Gerrard isn't a fullback, he plays at his best on the wing.

I also like Salvi at 7 cause Smith hasn't been as effective these few years compared with when he burst onto the scene. It was time to give a new guy a go and heres hoping he comes through and becomes our Richie McCaw :)

This should be a good game... predictions are Hurricanes 24-18

Blues win up front
Hurricane loose forwards will dominate 2nd phase
Expect a huge game from both backlines, Hurricanes to have the edge.

Im not really interested in that record seeing as subi can only hold around 43-44,000

Plus if the Tahs play a final at Telstra stadium then they will set a record that can only be beaten by themselves.

Im more interested in the season attendance record, that will give a good indication of how good the team support is.
