Super League attendance as Wigan Warriors record biggest crowd and season leading average

Attendances for the latest round of Super League are underway, with Wigan Warriors and Leeds Rhinos posting impressive numbers.

The Cherry and Whites beat the Catalans Dragons 30-8 on Thursday night, Matt Peet’s side scoring 30 unanswered points after the French side took an early lead. A total of 14,481 saw the win at the DW Stadium, which keeps Wigan top despite playing a game less due to their involvement in the World Club Challenge.

At Headingley, 13,259 saw Leeds take London Broncos to the cleaners on Friday night, Rohan Smith’s side winning 46-8. Victory keeps the Rhinos in check with their top six despite recent pressure on their head coach.

In East Hull, another sellout was announced at Craven Park on Saturday, the ground’s current capacity being 10,200. The Robins dismantled St Helens 40-20 in another outstanding performance, following a gritty win over Wigan the week before.

At the Halliwell Jones Stadium, 8,680 saw Warrington Wolves beat Hull FC 24-6. The Black and Whites produced a serious account but in the end Sam Burgess’ side had too much quality. The game was also overshadowed by an incident in the tunnel between Burgess and Richie Myler after it was revealed that the Wire could only run with seven substitutions due to an admin error around their 21-man squad.

Elsewhere, 8,035 were at Leigh Sports Village as Leigh Leopards and Castleford Tigers played out the first Super League tie of the season. The sides were deadlocked at 28–28, with a frantic spell of gold points failing to split them.

In the end, just 4,843 were at the John Smith’s Stadium as Salford Red Devils beat Huddersfield Giants 18-16. The Red Devils led 18-0 in the final ten minutes as the Giants nearly completed an improbable comeback.
