Tickets for Wales' final Test match of 2017 on December 2nd against the Springboks are at over 58,500 tickets already sold. Only 55,122 came to see Wales beat the 'Boks last year.

Until this week, just 38,000 tickets have been sold for Wales' first ever game against Georgia on November 18.

An impressive 73,969 packed out the Principality Stadium to see Wales face Japan last season, taking advantage of a reduced ticket price. Though that game saw a huge surge in ticket sales closer to the game, so there is still hope for the Georgia clash.

As things stand, more than 235,000 tickets have been sold for the impending autumn campaign, meaning its set to become the best-attended campaign in three years.
