40,140 supporters attended a Super League fixture across Round 19.

However, the total figure is without Salford’s official attendance for their home clash against Catalans on Sunday at the AJ Bell Stadium.

It means an average of 8,028 across five Super League fixtures – a rise of 472 compared to Round 17 – that’s excluding Magic Weekend.

Wigan Warriors enjoyed the highest attendance of the round with 11,314 at the DW Stadium on Friday night. Bevan French broke the Super League record for most tries in a game as he went over seven times in their 60-0 win over Hull. Jai Field also scored a brace while Liam Marshall and Harry Smith also scored for a 60-0 victory.

St Helens were close behind in second with an attendance of 11,288 at the Totally Wicked Stadium for their televised match against Huddersfield.
