Channel 4’s coverage of Leeds Rhinos and Warrington Wolves pulls in record audience

It perhaps doesn’t surprise anyone, but Channel 4’s coverage of Leeds Rhinos’ narrow loss to Warrington Wolves pulled in a record audience for a Super League game.

The game – which ended up as a 22-20 victory for Warrington – had a peak audience of 755,100 and an average audience of 564,700.

A fresh twist on the game with comedian Adam Hills alongside Sam Tomkins, Danika Priim and Leon Pryce as pundits and Mark Wilson and Kyle Amor as commentators.

It just worked – in its entirety – with record numbers of viewers tuning in to watch Leeds Rhinos do battle with the Warrington Wolves with the latter just running out winners in the end.

Being broadcast on a Saturday dinnertime also helped with incredible interest up and down the country wanting to tune in at a reasonable time.

Hull FC host St Helens on Saturday afternoon with such a crowd also expected and anticipated in front of the Channel 4 cameras once more.
