Demand for tickets to see England take on South Africa in the Japanese city of Yokohama has seen prices soar, with some seats costing well in excess of £10,000 on resale sites.

One fan, Mark Jones from Telford, revealed he has spent more than £8,000 on tickets to see England play, forking out more than £3,000 for a last-minute trip to Japan, having just returned from watching some of the earlier stages of the competition.

The Duke has long been a huge fan of the sport and has previously spoken about how he played “for years” before being forced to give up due to numerous injuries.

He admitted earlier this year that he still pines for the game like a “labrador with a tennis ball” and could not resist joining in whenever he was near a rugby ball.

“I played scrum half for about five or six years until I got too tall and instead of being a forward I elected to be a fly-half,” he told teenage players as he spoke about how the game could instill good values to set them up for life.

“The discipline is crucial, the teamwork, the respect for others,” he said.

In 2015, the Duke presented the Rugby World Cup to New Zealand after they beat Australia in the final at Twickenham, taking over from the Queen who is understood to have allowed her grandson the honour, knowing his passion for the game. She handed over patronage of the English and Welsh rugby unions to her grandsons in 2016.
