NRL finals fever has hit New Zealand with public tickets for Friday's semi-final between the Warriors and Sydney Roosters at Auckland's Mt Smart Stadium selling out in just 11 minutes.

The public allocation of tickets was snapped up on Tuesday morning following the Warriors' shock win over Melbourne on Sunday, with tickets reserved for Warriors and Roosters members now the only seats available.

There were still more than 600 seats available at Mt Smart Stadium for Roosters members wishing to travel across the Tasman for the match.

Members tickets will be on offer until 10am (AEST) on Wednesday, when all remaining tickets will be released for public sale.

It means the 26,000-capacity Mt Smart Stadium is sure to be full for Friday night's game.

The NRL have said there was similar excitement in Brisbane with more than 13,000 tickets sold in the first 20 minutes of public sales for the Broncos' match against minor premiers Melbourne at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday night.
