Your seriously unglamorous rugby pic of the day

The conditions for tonight’s game between Connacht and Biarritz aren’t ideal, to put it mildly.

CONNACHT’S GAME WITH Biarritz tonight was in danger of being called off, owing to rainy conditions and the subsequent poor state of the pitch in France.

And the picture below demonstrates that such concerns were well-founded, with the excess of rain and mud frequently hampering the play to an extent.
