Super League attendances: Three huge crowds but one game fails to reach 4K

Round 12 of the Betfred Super League certainly looked noteworthy and that was the case with some huge results throughout the table.

It all started at Belle Vue as Wakefield Trinity were tipped by some to finally win as they hosted Hull FC.

Despite a strong first half, without new signing Luke Gale, Trinity were well beaten by the Black and Whites in the end.

On Friday night there were four games and in the early kick-off Leigh Leopards added to Huddersfield Giants’ woes as they eased to a 30-4 win over the Giants.

Elsewhere, there was a comfortable win for Catalans Dragons as they ran in eight tries against a struggling Castleford Tigers side.

Meanwhile, two of the top teams served up a thriller as Warrington Wolves battled back from 12-0 down to defeat Hull KR 21-14.

They now have a four point lead at the top because of what happened elsewhere as they headlines were made at Wigan.

Wigan Warriors took a 14-0 lead before at 14-6 Leeds Rhinos’ Zane Tetevano was sent off. However, Leeds with 12 men sensationally won the second half 34-4 to claim a 40-18 win.

The weekend’s action concluded on Saturday when St Helens battled back from 12-0 down to defeat Salford Red Devils 26-12 as James Roby broke the club’s appearance record.

A great weekend of action, did the attendances reflect that?

Unsurprisingly, a huge crowd turned up for Roby with the game surpassing 11,000 but that came second in terms of attendances to Wigan vs Leeds. Warrington’s win over Hull KR also surpassed 10,000.

Sadly Wakefield were unable to reach 4000 against Hull FC but this is likely due to the stadium redevelopment.

Attendances are yet to be confirmed for the other two games.
