The Brisbane Broncos have again topped Roy Morgan’s annual National Rugby League supporter ladder with 1.09 million supporters (up 6.5 per cent on a year ago). It is followed by Melbourne Storm, which increased its support by 26.7 per cent to 1.05 million supporters. Seven NRL clubs increased their support in the year to June 2018, including the four most recent NRL Premiers. Roy Morgan is able to analyse the demographic makeup and intentions of NRL supporters across a vast array of important indicators, including the likelihood supporters of different clubs have of wanting to buy a new car in the next four years. A significant 19.9% of supporters of the Canberra Raiders plan on buying a new vehicle in the next four years, clearly higher than for supporters of the other 15 NRL clubs and well above the Australian figure of 11.9%. However, supporters of several other clubs have significantly higher intentions of buying cars in the next four years than the average Australian. These include the Parramatta Eels (17.2%), Melbourne Storm and Sydney Roosters (both 16.9%) and New Zealand Warriors (16.1%).
