Success for hardcore Hurricanes fans

Hundreds of people braved the cold overnight at Te Papa Tongarewa to get their hands on some of the 2000 tickets to the Super Rugby final.

With many fans missing out on tickets in the Monday sales, today was their last chance to get to the game between the Hurricanes and the Highlanders.

They're the hottest tickets in town.

It was through pure dedication to their teams that these fans secured a seat at the Cake Tin this Saturday.

Fans had been queuing since yesterday armed with supplies for an overnight stay, with one man going that extra mile to keep warm.

Though there's love for the rat, no love was shown to those people selling tickets on TradeMe.

The CEO of the Hurricanes is happy the Cake Tin will be filled with hard core fans from both sides.
