    The Bledisloe Ball.

    I found this on FACEBOOK - I have no idea how legitimate it is and would suggest anyone thinking about handing over the $350 per ticket do some research first.

    The Bledisloe Ball will highlight the tradition associated with one of the world’s most iconic sporting events.

    Tickets $350 per person (incl. GST) and can be purchased via http://ausrug.by/OIo1Gv

    About the Event:
    Themed around the 1930’s the Ball will re-live the prohibition era to help celebrate the beginning of what has become one of Rugby’s, and arguably the world's, greatest sporting rivalries – the Qantas Wallabies against the All Blacks.

    Come and rub shoulders with some of the legends of the game as Classic Wallabies and All Blacks will step out for an evening full of stories and entertainment. Dust off the tux, get the ball gown to the cleaners and get ready to rub shoulders with some of the legends of the game.

    Think it's ok Ex - saw a tweet from Qantas Wallabies about it earlier. Think I could find better ways to spend $350 though!!

    Will do my own version when in Brisbane for the Bledisloe in October. Might be considerably less formal though

    I reckon $350 will buy plenty of pints

    Yeah - plus the cost of a new tux in Size LRP (long retired prop) - if they make them that size.......
