If that is a sellout, I'm pretty disappointed by the club, considering how many people I know who couldn't go.
I think safety issues determine how many people they can squeeze into the ground...depending on how many people on the hill stand vs how many sit

I also noticed a number of empty seats in the stand

It was only 200 less than Souths in 2007 i think you'll find. You cant fit to many more in to that joint.

What about the atmosphere though - sensational.

Yeah it was in 2005. but there were safety concerns and they decided to stop letting in so many people.
and there were empty seats because they released an extra 500 tickets at very late notice.

there was a heap of room on the hill.
I took several photos (will upload later) of big green chunks around where I was sitting.
Another 1000 would have been fine

The thing about jnr passes is some adults have them when they really shouldn't and they don't bother getting memberships. Then you see them on here saying how the jnr passes should be allowed to be used, even if it looks to be a sellout. They will say "so we look after our juniors" but they really are just looking out for themselves.
