Tickets for the two Twickenham Rugby World Cup quarter-finals featuring Wales and Scotland are being offloaded by English fans in their thousands, data from ticket marketplace Viagogo shows.

Wales face South Africa in their quarter-final clash at Twickenham on 17 October, while Scotland take on Australia the day after.

English fans were heavy buyers of tickets to the Twickenham quarter-finals, but with their dreams extinguished, it would appear that many of them just want to try and forget all about the rugby, meaning that the best seats in the house are being snapped up by the Welsh and Scottish for below face value.

While prices for Category D tickets are still holding firm, Category A and B tickets for this weekend’s games have dropped considerably as disappointed fans now seek to cover their losses.

This has led to big bargains for Scottish and Welsh fans, who can now sit close to the action for much less than they would have paid at the box office.

Although ticket prices for Ireland v Argentina – which takes place on 18 October at Twickenham – are also below face value, their confident performance against France over the weekend has pushed prices up 30 per cent in just three days, a trend Viagogo say they expect to continue as the remaining tickets are snapped up quickly.

Rugby fans can buy or sell tickets for Rugby World Cup 2015 on viagogo.
