Seen a bit of a debate going on another site yesterday between fans of these two clubs.

If it's agreed Wigan, St Helens and Leeds are the supposed 'big 3' of RL then who is currently the fourth biggest club?

Hull fans said without a doubt it's them whereas Warrington fans insisted they are the bigger club of the two.

Well Hull get more fans, though obviously helped by the Hull derby.

I’m not sure on finances, Wire have around £7m revenue I believe (though will probably over £8m for 2018 with getting to both finals). Not sure on Hull’s it’s difficult to find numbers. You’d think it’d be relatively similar.

It’s very close. Hull probably edge it in terms of attendances, Wire edges it in terms of on field performance.

Catalans maybe not too far behind either (oh god, what have I said??).
"The problem when you play Leeds is that they are a huge 'confidence' side. If you get on top of them, they will cower and go away, but when they get in front their chests puff out and they start whooping as they make tackles. " (Jon Wilkin)

I would have said FC but, there's not much between them and right now, Wire are way more consistent.
The Warrington supporters will certainly be the happier of the 2 sets of supporters.

How odd that this seems to matter to a Widnes supporter. As a Wire I couldn't care less.

I’m sure someone can tell you about the agreement with the SMC and the attendance figure that is published .

One team is skint and an unwanted tenant in a football stadium, on a 13 game losing streak but other than that it's a close call .
