Wests Tigers officials are concerned about crowds at Campbelltown Stadium, with another poor attendance at Saturday’s win over the Cowboys.
Chris Lawrence and David Nofoaluma remain at a loss to explain why Wests Tigers supporters are avoiding Campbelltown Sports Stadium.
The pair grew up in Campbelltown and played their junior league at the ground but admitted they were stunned to see a crowd of just 6,456 watch their 16-4 win over the North Queensland Cowboys on Saturday night.
Nofoaluma took to Twitter in the lead up to the game to encourage Wests Tigers supporters to get to ‘2560’ – Campbelltown’s postcode – after the success prop Aaron Woods had the previous week in asking supporters to get to ‘2040 – the postcode of Leichhardt Oval.
In shocking conditions at Leichhardt, 16,311 die-hard supporters braved the rain to lift Wests Tigers to an impressive victory over heavyweights Manly.
“I expected at least 10,000 to turn up at Campbelltown,” Nofoaluma admitted.
“It is hard to explain. Hopefully they will come here next time.”
Lawrence said the supporters in attendance made plenty of noise but was hoping to see a larger crowd.
“It would have been nice to have a few more people there. When Campbelltown is packed, you get a great atmosphere. If we can get another 10,000, it would be electric,” he said.
