I found these numbers on The Roar so I can't vouch for them:

 

Great TV ratings for international RL on FOX. Beating all the AFL and Union games. Even the Jr Kangaroos v Jr Kiwis beat the Waratahs TV ratings

This game had amazing atmosphere!  I find it very odd that Australian NRL fans usually sit on their hands for the whole match unlike in England.  They remind me a lot of MLB fans.

And sounded three times louder! Howls of delight every time a particularly big hit went in.

 

Best atmosphere of the weekend and an exciting match, even if there were a lot of errors.

With that atmosphere and level of rivalry I think they can really build on those viewing figures.

 

And yet the talk is of scrapping Rep weekend in two years.

 

A very good advert for the game and it bodes well for the world cup.
