Warriors semi final set to be a sell out

3:55 pm on 16 September 2008

National Rugby League finals fever has hit Auckland with public tickets for Friday's semi-final between the Warriors and Sydney Roosters at Mt Smart Stadium selling out in just 11 minutes.

The public allocation of tickets was snapped up this morning following the Warriors' shock win over Melbourne on Sunday, with tickets reserved for Warriors and Roosters members now the only seats available.

There were still more than 600 seats available at Mt Smart Stadium for Roosters members wishing to travel across the Tasman for the match.

It means the 26,000-capacity Mt Smart Stadium is sure to be full for Friday night's game.
