Super League Attendances: Three outstanding crowds but two unable to reach 10K

In a pivotal weekend, Leeds Rhinos and Leigh Leopards, Warrington Wolves and Catalans Dragons and Hull FC and Wakefield Trinity all met in the Betfred Super League this weekend with the importance of games at this stage of the season being highlighted by Castleford Tigers and their game against Huddersfield Giants.

The Tigers lost 28-0 to a resurgent Huddersfield side on a difficult night for their fans some of whom even protested after the game by remaining in the ground.

They got what they wanted with the Tigers making a huge decision and letting go of Andy Last.

Elsewhere on Friday night, Wigan Warriors gained a measure of revenge for their Challenge Cup exit against Hull KR. The Robins were under strength as they look ahead to the Challenge Cup Final at Wembley allowing Wigan to rack up a sizeable scoreline.

Warrington Wolves meanwhile were shown what is needed in the post Daryl Powell era to reach the top by a brilliant Catalans Dragons side.

On Sunday we were treated to three more games. Leeds Rhinos competed but lacked ideas against Leigh Leopards.

Hull FC continued to show that they can push for the play-offs at this late stage as they battered Wakefield Trinity sending them back to the bottom of the league.

Champions St Helens meanwhile spoilt the party at Salford Red Devils as they celebrated their 150th anniversary. They battled back from 15-2 down to win 18-15.

But did the attendances reflect the quality of rugby we saw this weekend?

Despite the bad feeling at the Jungle and the calls for change, they still had a crowd of over 6,000.

That being said, that was the lowest confirmed crowd of the week closely followed by Salford Red Devils and St Helens.

There were three five figure attendances at Wigan, Hull FC and the biggest attendance of the weekend at Headingley.

Warrington are yet to confirm their attendance.
