    Brisbane vs Sydney - 3'408
    Canberra vs Perth - 1'500
    NSW Country vs Rams - 1'000
    Melbourne vs North Harbour - 2'187

    Brisbane City and NSW Country games were rain effected i think, but all in all not a bad effort for the first round.

    Perth should draw a good crowd next week vs Brisbane City, but it'll be interesting to see how the Rams go on a Thursday night at Parramatta Stadium and Sydney Stars at Balmain.

    I'm most interested in the crowd QLD Country can get. It's free entry so it will show exactly how many people in the Gold Coast are interested. Not sure how many people the ground at Bond Uni can hold, but hopefully it's full.

    I hope the NRC can get a few crowds of over 5k during the season. Brisbane City are perhaps the best bet to do that.

    I don't expect heaps to go on the Gold Coast even with the open gates. Probably similar numbers to the non-Brisbane games above.

    I think Brisbane could pull in 5000 next time around though as it's a perfect warm up for the Boks Test that night and many people miss afternoon rugby at Ballymore.

    The Brisbane City v Qld Country game should get a big crowd at Ballymore. It might push the 5k mark.

    Well, Pfitzy is headed to Parramatta Stadium this Thursday. So strap a pair on mofos and get into it! Half price tickets I'm told.

    Plus you get to meet me!

    From my observation, the crowd at the Vikings' game was quite a bit more than 1000. Where did this figure come from?

    City will get 5,000 on that Saturday arvo and if they are near top of the table for the Country game they might even get a bit of press and push 10 on a Sunday arvo.

    Ballymore is just fucking awesome to watch Rugby at. The sightlines are better than Suncorp and its got that suburban, amateur, magical feel.

    Now if you could get there easily.. wow

    Since they didn't have turnstiles or anything there, ground officials for their best estimate and that's what they came up with

    Surely they had a count of how many tickets were sold?

    Unless juniors were free, some were given away, some were bought but not used etc. Crowd numbers are usually measured in attendance, rather then tickets sold.

    But if, for eg, 2000 tickets were sold, it would be unlikely that only 1000 turned up. From my position in the stand, I reckon there would have been 300 - 400 on the hill opposite, and the stand was pretty full. I would think upwards of 2000 in the stand.

    I't didn't look like there were 2'400 people there from the video highlights, i think that 1'500 figure sounds pretty accurate.

    This should settle it:

    Estimates on the crowd at Parramatta tonight?
    What would a respectable figure for a NRC game at Parramatta stadium be?

    Souths vs Bulldogs next door at Homebush same time won't help ratings or the crowd.
