Rugby League Round Ten: Attendance Figures Rebound After Disappointing Week

The latest round of rugby league action in the Super League did not disappoint, with several thrilling matches taking place over the Easter weekend. After a concerning drop in attendance figures the previous week, the latest round saw a significant boost in fan engagement across the league.

The week kicked off with a rematch of the Grand Final, as Wigan Warriors hosted the Catalans Dragons. The Warriors put on an impressive display, scoring 30 unanswered points to claim a 30-8 victory in front of 14,481 fans at the DW Stadium.

“The return to warmer weather and the high-quality on-field action seem to have sparked a renewed enthusiasm among rugby league fans across the country.”

While the Friday night clash between Huddersfield Giants and Salford Red Devils brought in a relatively modest crowd of 4,483 at the John Smith’s Stadium, the rest of the weekend’s action was well-attended. The Halliwell Jones Stadium and Headingley saw a combined attendance of over 22,000 for the Warrington Wolves vs. Hull FC and Leeds Rhinos vs. London Broncos matches, respectively.

The standout attendance, however, came at Craven Park, where Hull KR confirmed their status as top-four contenders with a 40-20 victory over reigning champions St Helens. The Robins’ home clash was a confirmed sell-out, with 10,500 fans packed into the stadium.

The game of the weekend was undoubtedly the 28-28 draw between Leigh Leopards and Castleford Tigers at the Leigh Sports Village, which was watched by over 8,000 spectators, showcasing the growing interest in the sport.

In total, the six Super League fixtures over the Easter weekend attracted a combined attendance of 59,618, a significant improvement on the previous week’s disappointing figures.
