Five out of the six Super League fixtures recorded a total attendance of 39,176 during Round 13, an average of 7,835.

Leeds Rhinos enjoyed the highest attendance of the round during their televised Friday night clash against St Helens with 14,161. 

It was the second golden point extra time tie following Wigan’s dramatic win over Hull KR on Thursday. Lewis Dodd kicked the winning drop-goal late on to give St Helens a 13-12 victory at Headingley Stadium, while Leeds will be nervously awaiting results on several injuries picked up during the feisty match, including to Harry Newman.

It’s Leeds’ third highest attendance of the Super League season so far, with Round Two remaining at the top with 16,140 against Hull. 

Elsewhere in Super League Round 13

4,206 attended the John Smith’s Stadium as Ian Watson’s Huddersfield ended their losing streak with a 20-4 victory over Castleford Tigers, who remain with only two wins in the season so far. 

Huddersfield have slashed prices for their Round 23 clash with Leeds in an attempt to break their record attendance, which currently stands at 15,629.

Warrington fans travelled in numbers to make the short trip to the Leigh Sports Village which contributed to the attendance of 8,120. However, supporters didn’t have too much to cheer about as Adrian Lam’s Leopords continued their impressive form with a 30-12 victory. 

Leigh are now unbeaten in their last six fixtures in both league and cup.

Sunday’s only game recorded a crowd of 4,569 at the AJ Bell Stadium as Paul Rowley’s Salford claimed a 29-22 victory over Hull FC.

After grabbing much of the headlines during the week following his transfer request, Tyler Dupree scored Salford’s first at home, followed by tries from Deon Cross, Ryan Brierley, Marc Sneyd and Ken Sio.

Finally in France, Catalans enjoyed a crowd of 8,120 as the Dragons secured their ninth win of the season with a 36-6 score over Wakefield. Steve McNamara’s side now sit third on the table on joint points with Wigan at 18.

Wigan defeated Hull KR 26-22 with a golden point winning try from Liam Farrell on Thursday. No attendance has been shared.
