What sort of numbers are they pulling to non international matches?Agree for the most part, but cricket is still the number one sport in aus and always will be unless soccer takes a proper hold.
Edit: AFL might be more competent and professional behind the scenes, but they’re really polishing a turd of a product compared to RL (especially as a tv sport). There’s a reason why NRL gets superior ratings: it’s the better code. AFL thrives because of how cult like Victorians are towards it. Sure, it might be popular in WA, but I bet that RL would be a hit there if we put a side in Perth instead of allowing the Sydney wankers to spawn a plastic, titans like second Brisbane side in a sad attempt to weaken the Broncos, which is the real reason for the Brisbane 2 push.
