Biarritz beat Connacht in drenched conditions at the Parc des Sports Aguilera

Biarritz beat Connacht 17-0 on Friday night in Round 4 of their Heineken Cup return fixture, which took place in horrendous conditions. The field was drenched after heavy rains but both sides played to a decent standard considered how wet it was underfoot.

Connacht were unable to repeat the feats of a week earlier when they beat the French side at home. This time it was the hosts at Parc des Sports Aguilera that came out trumps, with Iain Balshaw and Seremaia Burotu both scoring well taken tries.

Following the defeat in Galway, club president Serge Blanco got rid of coach Jake Isaac and assistant coach Serge Milhas. Laurent Rodriguez took charge ahead of this improved performance.

The drenched pitch had to be worked on by groundstaff but the game went ahead under trying conditions, as chip kicks resulted in the ball stopping dead, and players going to ground created massive waves and huge splashes.

South African center Danie Poolman took an unfortunate knee to the head which led to a long delay and him having to eventually be stretchered from the field.

The result saw Biarritz go ahead of Connacht on the Pool 3 table, while Harlequins remain on top after two convincing wins over Italian team Zebre.
