Attendances (Multiple Merged Threads)

Leeds once again have the highest home attendance of the round 

Is that because of Leeds' attractive and winning rugby,  or because there is nothing better to do in Leeds?

I'm interested in that drive, that rush to judgment, that is so prevalent in our society. We all know that pleasurable rush that comes from condemning, and in the short term it's quite a satisfying thing to do, isn't it?

Sadly, judging from the highlights, the 4887 at Toulouse once again looks dubious. 

Do you think they were lying?

What have you seen? I've only watched the tries which don't show the crowd on the camera side.

The ground looked ~empty at both ends again. The cheap side looked 1/4 full. I couldn't see the expensive seats on the camera side but I did see them for the Huddersfield game and there they looked 1/4 full. It would surprise me if that side had 3k in this time.

I watched this from my settee.

I'm not accusing TO of lying.

I don't have an alternative attendance to give you.

I simply struggle to visualise 4887 in there. I struggled to visualise 5k in there last time.

Can you also have a go at estimating Huddersfield's crowds by seeing a few tries on TV?

So let me get this right, you " struggled " to see 5000 in there last time but you were wrong and there was, and now you`re saying you struggled to see 4887 based on the same evidence. 

Crowd numbers especially when dispersed throughout a stadium can be deceptive, and groups here and there can add up very quickly. 

There was 5049 at the NRLW today and I too was surprised by the figure, but based on past experience I`m not prepared to dispute it. 

The other thing is I don`t care, if it makes the game look good to the casual viewer who may see that figure and be surprised, then there may be a chance they are more likely to go along next time if they think 4887 other people thought it worthwhile.

That would be great. I'm hoping that TO can become as big as the Dragons.

This isn't true, they usually get over 13k, and have only dropped below 13.2k a very small number of times. 

The 2014 game you refer to was an all-pay playoff game. 

The next lowest was over 10k on a Wednesday night. 

 

All according to rugby league project 

There’s nothing that i wrote that isn’t true.

 

Leeds V Cats has always been one of the lowest attended games at Headingley.

The attendance this week wasn’t great and should be better, it was still the highest of the week, don’t get me wrong our attendance figures have dropped, weve had a perfect storm of factors, stadium rebuild, covid, and poor performances.

You said it has never got great attendances. It has. It rarely drops below 13k and has had over 15k. They are outstanding attendances and we would do anything for that kind of crowd now.

So youre able to extrapolate the attendance at a ground you've never been to, with zero data on which to base your guess? Wow, what an analyst......and yes i did spell that last word correctly....

And the leeds public would probably do anything to have a team as successful and as good as when we we’re getting those attendances 😉

the great attendance point was in context of attendances at the time.

Leeds have a lot of work to do on and off the field to get back to those types of attendance figures.

One thing that won’t help is we don’t have a home fixture on our preferred Friday night until round 7, if we can pick up the performances on the field I would hope that game against Saints would get a decent crowd

Is that good or bad? I don’t imagine there’s too many more than 500 Broncos STH, so even with a couple of hundred Bulls fans, that’s quite a high percentage of Broncos fans turning out for a cup game after a poor run of results to start the season.

Mick Gledhill said on commentary that the Bradford players were "going across to thank the 400 or so travelling supporters".

Was that just MG living up to his reputation or were there only 150ish home fans there?

Is that a rhetorical question?

Not sure, but in this photo, posted by MG himself, which I believe is the away end, does not look like much more than 100 there.

I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume that I misheard 100 as 400!

1221 at York vs Newcastle today.
 

With the game live on YouTube, tickets at full price (albeit with a free cinema ticket), a small (but loyal) away support and York probably putting in their worst half of rugby last week for many a year I thought today would’ve been 600-700 so a very good attendance all round.

I think that's pretty good for the Cup. We just need a way to make the Cup into a big thing again.

I’m hoping that having the final at Spurs will boost the crowd this year, will certainly be taking a few down from Norwich for it, 🚂 🍺 ☀️

It would be many, many years since the Broncos last had 500 season ticket holders. In fact, I'd be staggered if they have more than 50 at this moment in time.

If it adds any weight to any argument, we went to Toulouse for the opening game and those who were there all said there is no way there's over 5,000 in that ground, if there was half of them were in the toilets at the same time.
