Samoa now a Rugby World Cup hot ticket team

Samoa have become one of the 2011 Rugby World Cup’s hot ticket teams after they beat Australia’s Wallabies in Sydney on the weekend.

Samoa pulled off a shock 23-32 victory over the Wallabies on Sunday for the first time in rugby history.

The Samoans are pooled with Wales and South Africa in their rugby world cup pool and their performance against Australia has caused a spike in sales for their Cup games.

A Rugby World Cup spokeswoman said tickets to Samoa-South Africa at North Harbour Stadium had now been “exhausted” after the win.

“There’s been an increase in demand to Samoa matches since the result,” she told the NZ Herald.

“Samoa-Fiji and Samoa-Wales are also both selling really well.”

The Samoa-South Africa match is the fourth cup game to have its “allocation exhausted”.

Rugby World Cup organisers have avoided using the term “sold out” because more tickets could be made available.

The other matches that are “exhausted” are the Rugby World Cup final, the New Zealand-France match and the France-Canada match.
