England vs Greece records impressive attendance at Bramall Lane

England met Greece today in a game full of highlights as England ran in 17 tries six of which came from wingers Dom Young and Ryan Hall.

There was also a brace for Andy Ackers as England fans enjoyed a feast of fantastic rugby which no doubt put their rivals on notice as the knockout stages roll around next week.

It was the biggest win of the World Cup so far and England’s biggest World Cup triumph ever as well as their third highest score ever.

The game also shed light on all the options at Shaun Wane’s disposal with Jack Welsby and Tommy Makinson shining at centre at fullback respectively.

Meanwhile Ackers and Man of the Match Marc Sneyd have made themselves almost undroppable.

Young again appeared World Class as did Tom Burgess who ran riot off the bench and grabbed two tries.

But how many fans were in attendance to watch the game?

Attendances have been a hot topic during the World Cup but after last night’s brilliant attendance at Leeds Rhinos’ Headingley Stadium for New Zealand vs Ireland which attracted 14,044 fans, organisers no doubt hoped that England would continue to attract fans.

They did with 18,760 fans in attendance today.

It is less than their previous two fixtures with 23,000 at Bolton last week against France and 43,000 in Newcastle against Samoa.

It is still the third highest attendance of the tournament ahead of last night’s and Australia vs Fiji which attracted 13,000 fans.

England games are reportedly selling well with over 35,000 sold for England’s expected semi-final at the Emirates.
