Gloucester Rugby's ticket office has been a hive of activity over the last five days selling just over five thousand tickets in less than a week.
Tickets for the Gloucester vs. Australia match on Tuesday, 3rd November 2009 (7.45pm) are in demand with over five thousand tickets already snapped up now that tickets are on general sale.
Gloucester Rugby's head coach Bryan Redpath said, "It's great to see that so many fans have already purchased tickets for what will be a momentous occasion in the rugby calendar".
"This is really an exciting fixture for not just the fans to watch but for the players and coaches to see how we match up against the very best in the world".
"Of course for players like Mike Tindall it won't be the first time he has played against the famous Wallabies, I am sure he has many fantastic memories from the 2003 World Cup where he was part of the England World Cup winning squad that beat them 20 -17."

With such a short turnaround between the two games, and Gloucester looking to reintegrate several players into the line-up after the Autumn international series, Tom Savage told GRTV that the Cherry and Whites will keep changes to a minimum for the European Rugby Challenge Cup game in Zebre on Saturday.
Gloucester travel to Italy this weekend to take on Zebre in Round Four of the European Rugby Challenge Cup. The Cherry and Whites defeated the Italian side 35-10 last Sunday, but Director of Rugby David Humphreys is looking for an improved performance in the return fixture.
Skipper Billy Twelvetrees, speaking to GRTV after the 35-10 over Zebre, was happy with the bonus point win over the Italian side but admitted Gloucester will need to tighten up for the return fixture in Parma.
Gloucester Rugby welcome Sione Kalamafoni, Greig Laidlaw and Tom Palmer back to the starting line up and feature David Halaifonua in a matchday squad for the first time, as they resume Aviva Premiership action against Bath Rugby at Kingsholm on Saturday (kick off 5:30pm).
