Got a spare $135,000 so you and three mates can watch a rugby match? That's the asking price that some sellers are advertising their tickets for in England.

Four tickets for the Rugby World Cup clash between England and Australia at Twickenham on Sunday are commanding that asking price on the resale site StubHub, according to The Mirror.

The Category A tickets have a a face value of $754, meaning each is marked up by about $33,000 (£13,845). The game is sold out and has taken on even greater significance for the tournament hosts, who are in danger of being knocked out in the pool stage having lost to Wales.

But wait - there's more. A lot more. Tickets for the sold-out final at London's Olympic Stadium are being advertised for up to $220,000 (£92,040) each, the paper said.
