England rugby fans warned

Wednesday, March 14, 2018

LONDON - England fans with tickets for their final Six Nations match were have been warned off selling them on the secondary market amid a clamour from Ireland supporters to witness their country's bid for only their third Grand Slam and first on St Patrick's Day.

Ireland travels to Twickenham on Saturday having already won their third championship in six years following their victory over Scotland and England's defeat in France.

This weekend's match had previously been billed as a title - and even a potential Grand Slam - decider but the best England can now hope for is to claim the runners-up spot, with even a fifth-placed finish not out of the question for the 2016 and 2017 champions.

Holders of tickets for the Saturday's showdown were asking for up to £4400 ($F12,422) per seat on the secondary market on Monday in defiance of the Rugby Football Union's ticket terms and conditions.
