This ANZAC Day has brought the crowds out in OZ for the first two games of Round 7.
Melbourne's fairly new AAMI Park ground saw a near capacity attendance of 25,480 for the clash between rivals Storm and NZ Warriors. Before that Sydney's Allianz Stadium hosted the Roosters v Dragons game which attracted a crowd of 40,752 for their Thursday game.
We knew the popularity of Rugby League in Australia was in a healthy state.
Today's total attendance in two games of 66,232 emphasised the draw the game has. No wonder the media pays a king's ransom to screen the games.
