Harlequins have launched an investigation after claiming “many” of their fans sold tickets­ on to Munster fans for last ­Sunday’s Heineken Cup quarter-final at the Stoop.

Under Cup rules, Munster were allocated 25 per cent of tickets for the game, which attracted 15,000 people. But in a statement on the club’s website, Quins said it was “obvious from 90 minutes before kick-off” that Munster supporter numbers “exceeded” their ticket allocation.

“The club is determined to identify any person that sold on his or her ticket and will ensure that last Sunday’s outcome is not repeated,” the statement said.
