New Zealand rugby fans are converging on Tokyo clutching their tickets to Friday night’s bronze medal match at the Rugby World Cup – but at least two Kiwi fans have admitted they’ve lost their tickets to the final.

Ian from Riverton and his friend had tickets to the final, until they went missing on a night out on the town in Tokyo.

“We just can’t remember where we have been, so we can’t remember how to get back to find them,” he toldRNZ.
