I spoke to the guy who runs the gate and he gave me the figure quoted in the Rugby Paper 2800.

Ealing do not give the actual true count. Other clubs count every man woman and child. EALING Trailfinders only count at the gate it seems. Disregarding the attendees at the pre match lunch and the various sponsors and their guests.

A attendance of 3627 must be a record for Ealing Trailfinders.
Ambition should be made of sterner stuff.

Of the 3627 supporters how many there weren't from London Irish? Or neutrals coming for a final fix of rugby? I don't think Ealing support suddenly shot up from circa 800 to 3.6k. I would guess there was a very large LI contingent - to sustain playing in a higher league I think Ealing would need circa 5k home support, and then numbers swell for the derby matches of which there would be quite a few.

Either way I was pleased for Ealing to get that win - pity they couldn't squeeze LI more in the league though.
Onward and Upwards C'mon Donny!

My guess would be about half were Ealing supporters. This is based off of crowd noise, and that we got about 1600 last year against Leicester A, who brought no fans due to the Champions Cup final being the same day.

Note: someone has put the entire broadcast onto youtube. Easy to find if you search for Ealing Trailfinders.
