Very poor.

All the hype in the world and they barely scraped past 7,000. And 5,000 of them were from Wakefield.

Frankly, the people of Salford don't deserve that team. When oh when will the fans come bazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz


didn't they sell 3k season tickets? Therefore your stats don't add up!

Seeing as it was double their usual average I dont see how anyone can consider this to be a bad attendance?

Whats your agenda?

Wakefield lost Keinhorst earlier than Salford lost Chase so interchange was even.
 

So?  My point didn't include Wakefield.  It was a point about Salford's own past defensive performances.

 

 

Didn't see the Red Devils but did get sick to death of hearing the most depressing rendition of 'Bad Moon Rising' that I've ever heard.
 

Well, if the Salford fans want to sing that on their own turf then good on them.  It's their ground.

 

 

There were a good 1,200 + there from Wakefield

And I'm sure there will be a good number of Salford fans making Wakey's turnout look better too at the reverse fixture.  Just as indeed all away fans make everyone's final figures look better, bar the Dragons and Broncos.

Great attendance for Salford and it seems a lot of them were walk ups as well because Dr K announced on Twitter just a few days ago that they'd sold 4,500 tickets.  The club or someone must have been working hard to attract an extra 3,000 on the day.

Good attendance probably helped by the sudden and unexpected arrival of Spring in the North West.

 

Also, the traffic wasn't too bad today but even then there was a 10 minute delay to kick off. Sooner the A57 is sorted out the better.

Read the man's post. Irony is lost on you, isn't it?

A bit less than I was expecting, but still a record, I believe. At least for RL


Record for Salford RL, 9,400 there for Wire v Hudds in cup semi final the other year

Good crowd, sounded like a good game too.

 

Terrific commentary and coverage on BBC Radio Manchester. With Warrington's performance on Thursday, I enjoyed my rugby for the first time this season and hope Salford will get better as the team 'gels'.


I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

I'd have thought you enjoyed Wigan's first performance a little bit. :)

Realised this morning that the starting 13 were all making their debuts. The interchange bench had the only ones from last season.
