ok, table formatting is useless here.

Cursory analysis shows we're averaging 5,668 attendance this year, vs 6,202 for the whole of last year or 5,801 for the equivalent fixtures last year.
In order to match last years season attendance of , we need to average 7,136, slightly below yesterdays attendance, for the remaining 4 home fixtures. However with Sarries, Wasps and Tigers still to visit the AJB this is possible I guess.

Last year, our 6 friday games averaged only 5,349, vs 7,908 for two Saturday fixtures and 6,202 for three Sunday ones. That statistic is unfair on Fridays though, sine the 2 saturdays were Tigers and the final fixture of the year vs Bath where 8,306 were crowded in apparently. This year, the simple averages favour Saturdays (6,327 vs 5,174 for Fridays) on sampling so far too but we know that other factors are at work in terms of stadium access which could be affecting numbers.

Regardless, we continue to lag other teams in the league, including falcons, and will do so even if attendances hold up for the remainder of the season.
