Red Army in Twickers sales link
SINCE the quarter-finals of the Heineken Cup have been decided, there have been over 2,000 tickets snapped up for the final at Twickenham on Saturday, May 19.
There is a suggestion that a large portion of these new sales have been taken up by Munster supporters as they survey the possibility of a home run to the final, beginning with an early-April date with Ulster at Thomond Park and either Edinburgh or Toulouse in late April.
The All-Ireland possibility of a Munster-Leinster clash has also been mooted as a reason for the Irish in London to invest in what would be a monumental day for Irish rugby.
London club Saracens have also generated interest given the proximity of the club to Twickenham and the heavy South African influence there.
The sum total of tickets moved for the final is closing in on the 35,000 mark.
