Tickets for next Saturday's Ireland v England Six Nations clash are being offered for sale at almost €7,000.

The Dublin clash, which is likely to be a championship decider, is a sell-out. But hundreds of tickets have appeared on ticket resale sites - at vastly inflated prices.

In one case a single ticket was last night being offered for £6,076 (almost €7,000) - which is nearly 70 times the official price. The tickets are on Viagogo - a secondary ticket site - where the cheapest seats start at £545 (€626) .Tickets were officially priced between €30 and €105.

The news has infuriated fans unable to secure tickets for the eagerly anticipated clash.

If Ireland beat Wales tonight, they could win the championship with a victory over Eddie Jones's side at the Aviva Stadium.

England know a win over Ireland next week will see them eclipse New Zealand's record of 18 consecutive victories, provided they beat Scotland tomorrow.
