339k for Souths v Melbourne on Fox league. More than what 9 got in the two capitals which actually show the games. 252k for Raiders v Roosters.

Crowds have been very good this round.

I thought there was more than 8k on Thursday. I've seen games at Brookie where they have posted 6k and there has been no one on the hill. It look pretty full as well as the stands. Anyways looked good on TV.

Saturday's crowds were awesome. Especially Melbourne v Canberra.

Good crowds at Parramatta, Brisbane and Canberra. Saturday Sydney crowds are pretty bad.

Next round word is the Sharks Raiders game is a sell out. Expecting a good crowd for the Manly Melbourne game. Hopefully some strong crowds to finish the season.

Great crowd on Thursday night for the final game at Dairy Farmers (err 1300) for 2 teams out of finals contention. 15k.

Couple of pictures I took of the new stadium. It's looking great and will be an awesome addition to the NRL.

More photos are on the stadiums board area

Surely they move Manly to Brisbane.
Manly have no money, bugger all crowds and membership and poorest facilities.
Need a game every week at Suncorp.
Instant derby - MAROON and WHITE v MAROON and GOLD
Play half home games at Suncorp the rest wherever.
Storm and a couple of others will play a "home game" at Suncorp to ensure it's used 3 weeks out of every 4
Just call them THE SEA EAGLES with no state or city designation.

Give the GC another 1-1.5 million in salary cap space to help fight the fading Suns, Roosters to Adelaide, bring in another Brisbane team and Perth. Leave Manly where they are.

Manly have a good leagues club, decent sponsorship and have, from what I have heard, government funding for a new stadium. Imo the 9 sydney clubs represent key geographic areas. IMO if the NRL were to kick out or relocate a team from sydney it would cause massive issues with the fan base that they already have secured. My opinion on expansion is that they should expand to 22-24 sides and create a 2 division structure, similar to the super league or the SPL in Scotland

Great crowds to start the round. 20k on Thursday and 25k last night.

Think the NRL stuffed up with Melbourne. The Storm should have been away for the final round of the AFL, then play a home game during their pre finals bye week and then been away this week.

They did stuff up, but then 12,085 while 93k of us were over the road isn't all bad.
