Mud glorious mud!

The torrential downpour last weekend saw many local football matches postponed.

As for rugby, not a bit of it, as matches from Chelmsford to Stowmarket braved the elements and got stuck in.

It was not a day for purists. It was all about guts, rucks and mauls.

To celebrate a truly amazing weekend of indistinguishable players and a nightmare scenario for groundsmen, Love Rugby brings you a picture special to capture just a flavour from last Saturday afternoon. Just don’t ask us who is in the pics!
