Ticketing bungle halts NRL finals sales

1:30 pm on 20 September 2010

An embarrassing ticketing bungle has allowed non-National Rugby League club members to purchase exclusive advance tickets for Saturday's highly-anticipated preliminary final between St George Illawarra and Wests Tigers.

The NRL on Monday ordered the temporary suspension of online sales on tickets, which were not supposed to go on sale to the general public until Tuesday morning.

The NRL blames a Ticketek technical glitch.
