Storm were well down in Melbourne.
Swans number was a lie.
Got proof thickshit?

If you were an afl making those claims about an nrlol game you would have tf circus freak regulars crapper, fearless leader loopy Leroy etc in a melting fit with Leroy in a fit handing out warnings!

Despite the little code of nrlolw long long life g history of :^o :^o :^o exaggerating numbers

When it comes to crowds......
The NRL is clearly less than half as popular as the "world's least popular sport".

I also wonder whether this afl v rl thing that we see mainly in the rl states is due to their being a culture of competition between rl and ru over the years as to which is better ‘, bigger etc. with ru no longer really in the race has afl also stepped into that void?
AFL has most certainly taken a share out of Rugby union> what percentage would be interesting..

i think the battle between League & Union is more in ENGLAND than it is here.

no
the afl might have small chunk
the league would have definable picked up its fair share of union fans due to being a simplified direct rip off of the game

Many former Rugby fans are now AFL fans. I know quite a few regulars at SCG Swans games.

Feel sorry for the Waratahs actually.
But one intriguing subplot in the war for football supremacy that is less discussed is the battle between Australian rules and rugby union that is playing out in parts of Sydney.

Yet, while the AFL has undeniably made inroads into rugby's turf at a grassroots level, it's in the professional realm where it is has really pulled away.

The Swans average attendances, TV ratings and memberships long ago surpassed those of the Waratahs and now completely dwarf them. And the eastern suburbs and north shore (as well as the Hills district and Sutherland shire) are among the strongest areas for Swans members and fans, according to membership data viewed by the Herald.

"One in every 24 Australians is now a member of an AFL club, a sign that the national reach of Australian football has never been greater," League CEO Gillon McLachlan said.

Looked nothing like it, so barren I was surprised. Warriors home ground ave is 17600+ this year. Tonight’s game looked, well, barren , unless they were packed on the telecast side, sardine like packed.

Broncos, good crowd, dreadful result.
Warriors 10,365. Didn’t look that many, but well below their average of 17608.
