Exciting Super League Round 12 Recap: Impressive Attendance Figures and Thrilling Matches

Rugby League Roundup: Super League Returns with Impressive Attendance Figures

After a brief hiatus for the Challenge Cup, Super League action returned with a bang in Round 12, delivering a slate of enthralling matchups that also saw impressive attendance figures across the board.

The Challenge Cup semi-finals had drawn an average of just over 10,000 fans per game, sparking some concern. However, early ticket sales suggest the Wembley final will be a well-attended affair, with Warrington Wolves already selling 10,000 tickets on their own.

Warrington Wolves End Catalans Dragons’ Home Streak

Warrington’s loyal supporters turned out in force as the Wolves ended Catalans Dragons’ impressive 12-game home winning streak with a gritty 16-8 victory. Similarly, Leigh Leopards continued their resurgence, defeating Huddersfield Giants 16-10 at home.

Castleford Tigers and St Helens Secure Wins

Castleford Tigers provided their fans with a 30-22 triumph over Hull FC at the Jungle, while St Helens hammered Leeds Rhinos 40-10 to go top of the table. Wigan Warriors joined their rivals and Warrington on 18 points with a 26-6 victory against Salford Red Devils.

Hull KR Dominant in Victory over London Broncos

In a high-scoring affair, Hull KR produced a dominant first-half display to secure a comfortable 64-14 win over London Broncos.

The strong attendance figures across Super League Round 12 are a testament to the growing interest and passion among rugby league enthusiasts. The three highest attendances were 11,367 at St Helens, 9,410 at Catalans, and 8,269 at Castleford, showcasing the committed fan bases of these clubs.

“Notably, Castleford’s continued efforts to maintain an average attendance of 7,500 or more to maximize their IMG points appear to be resonating with their loyal supporters, who are turning up in impressive numbers.”

Despite the clashing fixtures with the FA Cup Final and the Championship Play-Off Final at Wembley, the Super League attendance figures remained robust, highlighting the unwavering dedication of the rugby league community.
