Do we have numbers for all 4 playoff games? 

Tbh,  after watching all four of them,  I though they came across pretty well.  The presence of noisy away fans in all four games added to the atmosphere on TV,  and I assume in the grounds too. 

I'm not sure why some people like to make out away fans aren't important.

I don't think anyone says that away fans aren't important.

That is often the strawman posited by those who think games without thousands of away fans spell financial ruin.

It is regularly posted and then people quote things like games against London and French clubs where clubs have given tickets away. 

And then when challenged people claim it was never said and its a strawman.  😉

Was taking about this with union mate. Our Champ far far outweighs the union. Means a 14 man SL should be a show in

We need one more team pulling in 8k in SL and then thats another team who can spend up to cap and challenge at the top. I still think that can be Toulouse who pulled in 5k with their covid hit nightmare and got 9k for what should’ve been a Saturday game.

Ideally another one in the UK also. But hard to see in current state anyone, maybe Leigh having an awesome start next year might see it happen.

Agreed.....the Bulla I'd guess still have enormous capacity for 8k and more with some success and backing

Why does the popularity of a different sport's second tier have any bearing on the size of our top tier?

David Hughes would be delighted to 'sell' London, after the enormous amount of money he has put in to it. Unfortunately, no one wants to buy it, at any price. When he is no longer around, neither will be London. So get your criticism in now, you wont be able to in the future. It's staggering that so many people with neither knowledge or information (and certainly no money) just love to criticise others.

Buy what? it owns nothing. That´s the problem that no purchase or part purchase of any stadium took place over the last two decades and now it would almost be impossible. You wouldn´t buy Broncos, you´d just start again.

I just dont see it, the money you would have to sink into a stadium of even 8k for Bulls would be what ? 12 million. In terms of Sports teams you could get a team in Wales for half, hell Plymouth with 250,000 population would be more viable for grabbing a rugby ground. Or grabbing millmoor and cleaning it up at half the cost right in the heartlands with part time players and 2 local derbies to sell plus Leeds if you ever got there.

Probably because it might show that we have several clubs who could step up to SL and add value whereas Union in this country bar I´d say plymouth albion and Brum if they ever got a stadium is probably hit its limit.

Widnes too, at a push.

Not unfair, crowds were reasonable when up and only now recovering from admin hell. My worry is the catchment area is too small, like Leigh.    Wire St’s Wigan And of course Leeds all have 6 figure populations to draw on.

Widnes and Leigh’s crowds in SL last time were good but 6k seems to be the limit.

Widnes 2004/5/6 got up to 7.5K. I think that was the peak.  I’m not sure how we get back to anything like that

There is untapped Cheshire on their doorstep. I’m not saying that would be easy, or even possible, but they’re not hemmed in like Leigh are.

Thought the canal would create sense of seperation and trains go to Liverpool from Chester first, tapping into Runcorn would be first move.
