I'd be interested to see the breakdown of Brumbies crowds on Fridays vs on Saturdays. I can say anecdotally that Fridays always get smaller crowds in Canberra, but stats trump anecdotes.

Curious, do we have any stats on what the Argies are bringing to the table in viewers and crowd wise? That stadium looked like it had 10 - 13,000 people. How many eyeballs are they getting to justify being in the comp?

Some interesting ratings info in the SMH today

Shute Shield television ratings crashed 67 per cent over the five years Club Rugby TV and Seven held the broadcast rights to rugby's heartland club competition, the Herald can reveal. On the same day Rugby Australia's $3.7 million deal to buy back Sydney's club rugby rights was hailed as a "game changer" by club figures, it emerged how poorly the competition was rating on Seven's digital channel 7TWO, its home since the ABC dropped it in 2014.


Last season attracted an average audience of 13,000 people on the free-to-air network's digital channel, down from 40,000 in the final year of the ABC's long-running broadcast. According to figures given to the Herald and sourced from OzTAM, the competition's television audience dropped year on year over its five years on Seven, apart from a small spike in 2016 - the year Northern Suburbs broke a 41-year hoodoo to claim the title. It dropped to an average of 28,000 viewers in 2015, rose to 29,000 the next year, fell to 19,000 in 2017, 16,000 in 2018 and dropped to 13,000 last season. For the past two seasons, Foxtel has broadcast a replay of the match of the round.

According to the NZHurld, Blues v Crusaders at Eden Park Friday night drew ~11K, A-League match the following night ~13K. First A-League game in Auckland for several years but that's still very disappointing.

Pay TV numbers

Tahs v Lions 49k
Highlanders v Rebels 25k
Hurricanes v Sunwolves 17k
Reds v Sharks 32k

The 5pm kick offs in NZ is not helpful, bloody hard to get in front of the TV straight after work on a Friday with traffic.

Really think they should have left Friday's the same and made the Saturday kick offs earlier.

I guess we aren't the target audience for that one
