Super League Attendances: Amazing attendances all around including sell out crowd

Hull FC fans

Another brilliant round of Super League has been and gone.

In the last 16 years only three sides have won the Super League title and all three of them lost this week as other clubs hope that a new King of England brings a new King of Super League too.

In recent weeks, Wigan Warriors have inserted themselves as potential favourites for the Super League title with wins against rivals St Helens and Warrington Wolves but their winning run of six games ended in a shock defeat to Hull FC.

The Black and Whites have now won the last two after seven defeats in a row and they stormed into a 14-0 lead but in the end were forced to hold on as Wigan battled back.

On Friday night there were five games. In France, a rampaging bull stole the show before Catalans Dragons scored 24 unanswered points to defeat Champions St Helens who have now lost three of the last four.

Meanwhile, last year’s beaten Grand Finalists Leeds Rhinos were beaten by Salford Red Devils at home as ill-discipline and errors let them down against a resurgent Red Devils side.

Over in Hull, Hull KR continued to underline their role as dark horses for success in 2023 as they thumped Huddersfield Giants 28-0 whilst newly promoted Leigh Leopards continued their play-off plus with a win over Castleford Tigers.

Wakefield Trinity meanwhile showed great character to push Warrington Wolves away. The Wolves battled to a win that sent them top of the league.

Another great weekend of Super League action, but did the attendances reflect that as well?

Excluding Hull KR who don’t disclose their attendances, only one game failed to reach five figures.

That was Leigh’s win and that still surpassed 5,000. Catalans’ meeting with St Helens was played in front of a sell out crowd as 10,000 seemed to be the magic number.
