If there is one thing we all know, it's that South Africans love their rugby.

At least, that is what we all thought...

Recent stadium attendances have begun to cause a little bit of concern. There has been a drastic decrease in the number of fans attending local matches in stadiums.

During the Super Rugby season and more recently, the Currie Cup over the weekend, camera footage showed large amounts of open seats, and this has sparked concern for rugby enthusiast Mack Rapapali

What could be the reason for this decrease? Is the economy taking its toll? Or do you just prefer watching your rugby at home?
