Rugby fans have expressed their frustration at being unable to buy tickets to the All Blacks test against Ireland in Dublin later this year.

They were unable to buy tickets to the November 20 game at Aviva Stadium, and claim the Ireland Rugby Union appears to have sold tickets to clubs and Irish fans in pre-sales.

Supporters of the men in black were forced to buy second-hand tickets, at increased prices.

Jared Jenkin told the Herald he was unable to purchase tickets for the game this morning.


"I went to buy All Blacks vs Ireland tickets for Dublin at 10am, in the public sale, and discovered Irish Rugby had pre-sold all the tickets to local clubs and supporters clubs.

"They lied saying New Zealand Rugby have an allocation."

Mr Jenkin said the only alternative in order to ensure tickets to the game was to buy from "scalpers".

The Herald has approached New Zealand Rugby for comment.
