    When Clive Palmer had a soccer team he tried to keep his crowds low as when you hit a certain number the hiring fees skyrocketed.

    It was better to have less than 4500 than 10000 due to the fee structure.

    NHR vs MEL: 1,000 to 1,200 ?
    CAN vs GSR: 2,178
    SYD vs PER: 400 to 1,000+ ?
    QLC vs BRI: 2,204

    Any of those who went to the Rays or Stars games able to back up or refine these numbers?

    So lower crowds as move to suburban games but clubs stay financially viable.whilst we also now have live streams for all games - wonder what viewer numbers for Foxtel Thursday nights and live streams are like..and whether getting higher number of viewers than last year say for Thursday nights..

    Yep that's my estimate. Definitely not 1,000 but more than 500.

    It was the last round of AAGPS rugby on Saturday with big games and big crowds at the three main venues, Stanmore, Northbridge and Kings.

    Would this have had some impact on the crowd for the Sydney NRC Saturday afternoon game at Leichhardt Oval?

    Reasonable crowd at a small club ground for Eagles v Stars in Tamworth. Maybe 1500.

    Queensland Country v Spirit

    According to the NRC website here :

    "The match in Rockhampton saw more than 2,000 fans attend the NRC clash at Victoria Park, which formed part of the 2015 Queensland Country Tour, proudly supported by the Queensland Government."

    So the NRC website has said 'around 3000' at the Vikings-Rays match.

    Can anyone who was there confirm the crowd?

    Decent crowd if true, but we all know about the ARU and their numbers...

    I believe @Nelson Dale had 2600 on his GAGR match report for the Stars-Rams, so decent turnout both ways.

    Any other numbers for the round?

    Ok, I've heard some official (legimate) numbers are:

    Syd Stars v Rams was 800
    Rays v UC Vikings was 3,000
