So it is officially a new World Record and it looked packed to the rafters! Our merry band of little neckerchief wearers thoroughly enjoyed the occasion too.

In 2009 we couldn't even fill the DW for England v Australia. Now over 140,000 fans have watched international RL in the space of 7 days.

That is more than watched the whole of the iconic 1990 Ashes series. Wow! Fantastic platform to build on.

If England were in the final I think we would of seen the best advert for Rugby League but today was stale sadly from last week but still an ok final.

Well done to everyone who bought a ticket to any of the games or who persuaded their mates to come along; without YOU this tournament would not have been such a success.

The surprise and joy of the best World Cup ever topped off with a world record crowd :)

Over to you Aussies and Kiwis, beat that

Sad to say that mate is in Queensland and he was watching the Newcastle A-League game today and didn't know about the final.

This seems to go against the themes of your other posts. And why was he watching an A-League game at 3am :/

I've loved the entire tournament, but most of all I've loved the fact that we've all been proved to be wrong about the crowds. We've had half a dozen sellouts, and we've shown that if the game is marketed properly then it can draw the crowds. The doubters within the game need to realise that there isn't a lot wrong with the product, it just needs to be sold properly.

I noticed yesterday that practically the entire Stadium stayed behind to watch the trophy presentation.  That doesn't happen at the Grand Final, its half empty within 30 seconds of the hooter usually!

That's because its a later kick off and the pubs may be shut if you don't leg it.

Can we promote Sally Bolton. I would live to hear her review of the tournament and her memories of it.
