Crowds and viewing figures of Super Rugby in NZ are on the up.

Auckland’s change of fortune at the top of the table saw them pull in 26,000 last weekend. Viewing figures across all NZ are said to be experiencing double digit growth.

All the while, Warriors experiencing a slump in form after last ear’s heroics. Can the Warriors sustain their mantle as the biggest sports club in NZ?

 

They pulled in 26,000 because it was 1st vs 2nd , against another NZ club on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. And there was a time when Eden Park would have been packed for a game like that.

Sure, a few stars aligned, no dispute. It’s not like Sydney NRL clubs pack them in for non-Sydney derby’s though either.

Fact remains. SR in NZ is on the up. It would be great if the Warriors could get their season back on track to keep their position in the public consciousness.

Especially when the SR team they share a city with are top of the table.

It will be interesting to see how Warriors crowds and viewership holds up once they return to their routine 10 years of mediocrity.

Warriors fans deserve more.

hopefully they come through this latest blip and bounce back.

The warriors have the potential to be a super club similar to the broncos in terms of crowds and membership if only they could string together a couple of consistent successful seasons i.e. regularly finishing in the top 4 and making the semifinals/grandfinal.

God only knows what would happen if they could actually win an NRL grandfinal!!

I hope the win against the panthers is a turning point in their season. They traditionally compete well over Origin, so there is a good chance over the next ten weeks for them to climb up the ladder this year and finish towards the top 4 or hopefully at minimum top 8.

Warriors announced a few weeks ago that the Dolphins game would be "Kids go free". That's not to diminish the latest sell-out. They offer packages to help low-income families at most home games.

Weather in Auckland is looking okay for Sunday.

On the downside, team probably even weaker than last week with Wayde Egan concussed and AFB stood down. Plus Liam Kennedy appointed as ref.
