    Love how they talk up the WBL as being hugely popular when you see them on TV playing at local grounds and the only crowd is a man walking his dog in the backgrounds.

    Seriously it is YEARS away from being popular, stop trying to act as if it is relevant.

    WBBL is growing and will only get stronger, It is relevant

    Crowds were up 25% last year compared to WBBL02 in 2016/2017

    The Sydney derby on the opening weekend last season got a crowd of 16,380 which is double what you get in some NRL games

    Ratings are growing too with an average audience of 223,000 nationally and over 1.8m Live Streams last year

    The new broadcast deal will be great for the womens game

    They need to get a bit more serious about this if they are going to keep people interested.
    People mostly watched for fun and novelty value at the start, but it actually needs to be a real sporting contest to keep people coming back.

    I don't know Billy I think the opposite mate, it is a contest and there is a good rivalry, but I think people really love the fact they can watch over dinner and a couple of beers after without taking it too seriously.

    Unlike tests and 1 dayers that very few have time to watch more than an hour or 2 of each day.
