Rugby World Cup 2019: Ticket prices soar for All Blacks v England semi showdown

Interest in the All Blacks' Rugby World Cup semi-final is reaching fever pitch, with prices for last-minute tickets rising to unprecedented levels.

You'd have to be delirious to pay for one, with some seats going for as much as $10,000 each.

Newshub's Mike McRoberts reports that the All Blacks are everyone's second-favourite team in Japan, so once the host nation was knocked out of the tournament, the locals immediately switched their allegiance.

Many of them have no intention of selling their tickets.

Thousands of Kiwis have flocked here, hoping to pick one up and those that already have one are guarding them like gold.
