RUGBY PLAYERS SLIDING ON PITCH COVERED WITH WATER DURING RAINFALL STORY: Members of the 'Wests Tigers' rugby team were spotted sliding and splashing around at the pre-season training session during a downpour in Sydney on Friday (February 7).

The National Rugby League team's fan, Keith Bassett, filmed players training on the waterlogged pitch at the Concord Oval rugby stadium.

"Looks like the Wests Tigers boys are having a good time with this drill," Bassett wrote after publishing several clips online.

Much of Australia's wildfire-ravaged east coast was drenched on Friday by the biggest rainfall in almost 20 years, dousing some of the most dangerous blazes and providing welcome relief to farmers battling an extended drought.
