Castres and Toulouse Singing in the rain

Castres and Toulouse Singing in the rain

Castres hosted south-west neighbours Toulouse on Friday night in what turned out to be atrocious conditions which actually saw the players leaving the field at one stage, as a hail storm and lightning threatened to put an end to the evening.

Toulouse came out easy winners 28-10 thanks to two tries by centre Maleli Kunavore, and one from Cedric Heymans. Flyhalf David Skrela kicked two conversions, two penalties, and a drop goal.

The hail stones that came pelting down on the players were bad enough that the referee decided to take them from the field for a short while. The threat of lighting though, was perhaps more of the concern than the hail.

With the Heineken Cup on the way shortly, this was an excellent confidence boost for the finalists of last season, as they host Bath in their opening Pool 5 fixture next weekend.

This short vid is pretty nicely done, and gives you an idea of what it was like out there during the match.
