Bad crowds, lack of interest! But but a success

Post by notaleaguefan » Sun Oct 20, 2019 7:24 pm

Bad crowds and scandal. But Nines boss says World Cup was a glorious success


Despite poor attendances over two days and an ineligibility scandal that threatened to derail the competition, IRL (International Rugby League) CEO Nigel Wood declared the inaugural World Cup Nines a success and said the game would explore taking the event to the Middle East.

Just 12,528 people turned up on the Friday night, while Saturday’s crowd of 15,684 was slightly underwhelming given Bankwest Stadium’s capacity is 30,000.

The NRL, to their credit, must be given praise for the professionalism in which they ran the IRL event, especially so soon after the end of the season.

That is such a stupid argument and deflection yet again. Just because the afl doesn’t have international 9s does not subtract from the poor crowds. To be honest I thought the crowds reported were okay. It’s on par with nrl average?

The afl or fans don’t promote the code at all in being international! It’s only seems to be the usual tin foil hat wearing nrl fans that do!

They still don’t have a counter argument as to why the game’s featuring the national side and other countries the pinochle of rugby preform so badly when compared to soo

Yep. The crowds were ok. The ratings were great.....nearly 2M for the 2 days. The jealousy of the southern folk is palpable.

Lol that question was too hard to answer .so I'll ask another

How did the shortened version of afl go .
Lol lol lol
Not even circus freaks could help .
It got canned .
The Nines are going strong ....& no need for circus freaks to promote it .

So if you're going to point & laugh at RL try to make sure your sport has something in comparison .
Lol international ..no
Shortened game ..lol no .

As I've said .
You're like a person who has no legs but points & laughs at someone's shoes .
