Amazing weekend for attendances in Super League

Super League Round Two has already been and gone and it was another fantastic weekend of action.

It all started at the AJ Bell Stadium as Salford Red Devils hosted Hull KR in an interesting clash between two entertaining sides who started the season with a win.

The Red Devils had the better of the first half but eventually their errors and a resurgent display from the Robins in the second half, led by Jordan Abdull, guided them to a win.

On Friday night there were three games. At Headingley, a late Scott Taylor try made it two defeats from two to start the season for the Leeds Rhinos. As for Hull, it is now two wins in a row to start the season.

Elsewhere, Warrington Wolves also made it two wins to start the season as they defeated Huddersfield in their first game of the season. A Matty Ashton brace was key.

Wigan Warriors won also on Friday night as they lashed out after losing in Round One. They ploughed through Wakefield Trinity winning 60-0.

Then on Saturday, a determined Leigh Leopards side came up short against Catalans Dragons in France as a Mickael Goudemand try proved key.

The weekend concluded with a win for Super League Champions St Helens in their first game. They defeated Castleford Tigers 24-6 just eight days after their World Club Challenge win.

From an attendance point of view it was a great weekend. Leeds Rhinos attracted a huge crowd of 16,000 at Headingley for their season opener and Wigan weren’t far behind with an impressive 12,000 strong crowd.

Castleford also recorded a five figure attendance against St Helens.

Huddersfield’s first crowd of the season was stronger than their average last year with 7,000 and Catalans Dragons enjoyed a similar attendance against Leigh.

Salford meanwhile had an attendance of 5,000 against Hull KR.
