COUNTER MEA­SURE

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SPORT -

THE NRL has found an in­ter­est­ing new way to boost sea­son crowd num­bers by count­ing dou­ble-header at­ten­dances TWICE. That’s right, ac­cord­ing to NRL records, the Storm v Ti­tans at­tracted a crowd of 31,118 last Satur­day evening at Sun­corp. And then the Bron­cos v Sea Ea­gles at­tracted an­other 31,118 in the same seats at the same venue.

They also counted the crowd twice in the dou­ble-header at ANZ Sta­dium in round three. This is a bla­tantly mis­lead­ing way to #NRLtalk­thegameup.
