    That might actually be the first attendance figure I almost believe from Melbourne this year!

    So Reds obviously failed to make 10,000 then?

    Looked pretty grim.

    So those two franchises tend to get combined what the Force can get by themselves on a sunday afternoon..

    Have the Reds and Rabble won the race to the bottom tonight? This could be a record low crowd for Suncorp. I sure don't recall seeing so few punters there.

    Yeah that certainly does look like their smallest crowd on record at suncorp. The fans have just stayed away despite it being a derby match. What a shambles this is keeping the Rebels in superrugby, atleast with us we had built rivalrys and taken the aussie grand slam on a few occasions. The reds made us their "other" rival, the Waratahs would always get very nervous when we played them in Sydney. It was only really the Brumbies that didn't have any real rivalry with us. But with Melbourne there is nothing, no care in the world from either teams or fans.

    Personally, I have never liked the derbyís. Iíve always preferred the o/s teams and alway thought of that as a benchmark.
    When you have four or five teams playing crap whatís the incentive to watch that? Bring in a good team and that seems to lift the standards. (sometime)
    From the little Iíve heard even NZ derbyís donít get mega crowds. Itís a massive shame but SR is dying and it was killed by itís supposed guardians!
