Rugby fans keen to catch the ITM Cup final on Saturday, are struggling to find accommodation in New Plymouth.

The Quality Hotel Plymouth International has only just managed to squeeze the Tasman Makos rugby team in.

General manager, Darrin Muggeridge, says most rooms had already been booked by long weekend holiday-makers, and those attending Oktoberfest and Filipino Society events on in town.

"If it was next weekend it would've been great, but that's the way the draw goes and who would've known the final would end up in New Plymouth."
