Outgoing RFL Chairman Richard Lewis has paid tribute to the growing appeal of the Stobart Super League after Rugby League's elite competition set new attendance records for the Easter Weekend.

A total of 153,772 people saw the Rounds 10 and 11 fixtures over the Bank Holiday, a three per cent increase on the record set in 2011 and 22,000 more than turned out for the Easter double header in 2010. Wigan Warriors fixture against Wakefield on Easter Monday was the best attended game of round 11 with 13,609 in attendance at the DW Stadium.

The aggregate crowd of 88,425 for the Round 10 fixtures last Thursday and Friday is the second biggest total in Super League history, just 931 behind the record of 89,356 set in Round 22 of 2010.

"The crowds we have seen this weekend testify to the burgeoning appeal of the Stobart Super League and the high quality of the sporting action which takes place at every Super League fixture," said Lewis.

"The competition continues to grow in stature and whilst some clubs are undoubtedly having it tough off the field, there is little doubt that the skills, athleticism and standard of entertainment that is served up on a weekly basis has never been higher."
