It got a bit wet at Wakefield on Saturday and they abandoned the game

  along with the pitch flooding as drain blocked with hail.

When it snowed several years back we played the weekend before at Wakefield and the ref called it off after 60min as he was going blue along with several players. Everyone bolted for the warm showers kit and all and Jamie Cross came steaming in and told us to get back out there as you can't abandon a game on turf and he would finish reffing it. Needless to say nobody from either team was interested in going back out there much to his dismay.

Wtf? I mean, player welfare. So if it was throwing lightning he'd be making people get back out there?

Staggering.

That's ridiculous. I played in a game in Wairarapa in 05 when one of our players collapsed and was rushed to hospital. Pretty scary stuff https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10122698
