Interesting Mark, thanks - I wonder if there's a version without the marquis Twickenham matches in; would be interesting to see the impact those singular events have.
With the new branding and potentially larger contingency of SA players coming on-board, it could be that Glaws would benefit from hosting one, with a view to pulling in more of the London based SA residents. . .might help fill the gap

Interesting that Quins and Sarries attendances are higher than their capacity!

Impressive that Tiggers boast the biggest average, even with a faltering season by their standards they beat the likes of Quins and Sarries who have inflated averages due to their games in the big stadiums.

Hopefully next season our attendance will be higher; this season was probably a mix of a fair few Friday night games and the first season with increased ticket prices.

Well the Saracens average goes up by 6000 due to their Wembley outings. Seeing as you have to rent the stadium, likely give out cheap and free tickets etc. there is no tangible logic to doing it. Maybe they sell a lot more shirts and the like, nobody has figures for this.

Personally I prefer the current approach, keep trying to fill Kingsholm and when you consistently do this you can make the ground bigger.

Surely the London teams act as home side for the Twickenham fixtures. Best to be the away team and get the benefit of exposure to potentially larger crowd than give up a home match.

Also I can't imagine season ticket holders who can't get to Twickenham would be too enamoured with it.
