Bledisloe 3



  • Yes it's early to start this thread (with the simple matter of 4 other tests to play first) but am wondering how to track tickets sales.

    Suggested to Mrs Boo that it'd be good to go to this. Seems she agreed as nekminit accommodation was booked.

    But I'm hanging off buying tickets in case the Sydney scenario reoccurs and prices dive.

    I'm pretty certain there will be tickets. Not sure a single close match is going to make a dead rubber that much more palatable to the Aussie sporting public. Add in the lack of popularity at Sydney and the sparseness of the crowd the last time they played Bled in Brissy I'm happy to wait a bit.

    But ...
    ... firstly Ticketek is a shit website: it keeps timing out on me while I'm browsing for where seats are
    ... there are sections showing "you can buy up to 1 seat in this section"

    So looking for advice from seasoned ticket buyers. (Haven't bought tickets since ... umm ... )

    Oh yeah. When is the team named?



  • I'm confused about this too. We tried to get 4 tickets to this a couple weeks back but there were apparently only single seats remaining except for the expensive seats which when you add in flight prices wasn't a realistic option. Had me thinking maybe rugby union is particularly popular in Brissy..maybe on account of their average footy side?



  • Brisbane Bledisloe hasn't happened for a few years. Might explain it



  • @booboo @Rembrandt A mate at work and myself had all sorts of issues buying through the Ticketek website during the presale period, it kept thinking I was a bot? We ended up using the mobile app which worked fine.

    I just checked and there are still 4+ seat options in most/all categories expect the Bronze one. I'd expect there are still heaps of tickets available.

    Maybe hit up an outlet if you have time, at least you can then pick your exact seat.



  • Moody, Taylor, Franks, Whitelock....

    Oh is this about tickets?

    Got shoured tickets to the last one by a contractor. 2014. Fekitoa and Slade winning at the death. Lucky if it was 50% full.

    Last match in Brissy before that was 2012.

    Prior to that was 2008.

    Please continue, I have no idea who else you would select....
