    Interesting spin, given it seems there is little interest even within the Mungo diehards for the tournament anyway

    If their using the 10k crowd on a 40 degree day at a ground where the main stand faces the setting sun with a kick off of 4pm on a work day as a reason to kill of a Perth bid, I suspect they were never serious about a Perth side.

    The 9's has faced declining crowds since its debut in Auckland where it got 90k through the gates across the weekend. In fact I think the Perth crowd was on par with what they got at BankWest Stadium for the World 9's last October.
