to be honest this is the bonus of 8th making the play offs.. crusaders, harlequins and catalans stand more of a chance of regualr play off appearences, play off RL should get people excited and help these clubs grow..

(its the only plus side of 8 in and if that is what the RFL were actually thiking then it could prove to be a great call)


the extra round of games means lots more revenue to the RFL to fund development officers

but yeah, the more teams that benefit from semi final experience, the more the competition develops as clubs get stronger

Cru fans turned up in good numbers and good voice, they sounded great because they were all sat under the TV gantry and therefore the mics

Those in the ground will confirm that while Crusaders were better at holding a tune, the 5000 Giants fans the made a lot of noise too, made for a cracking atmosphere too.

I hope Crusaders go from strength to stregnth

I doubt it's lots more, but is a bit more I'd have thought

whats the revenue on an extra round of games?

even at 45,000 for round 1 at say 15 pounds, less ground hire costs, plus things like corporate box sales

say 300,000 pounds at a minimum, not bad.

in the nrl we got 90,000 aggregate and our average ticket would be $35 ish

excluding members of grounds, around $2 million in revenues before things like corporate box sales, advertising etc.

There are such things as variable costs, it is not all profit.
