In Pictures: Was Naas V Tullow The Filthiest Sporting Event This Weekend?

The weather wreaked utter havoc with today's sporting schedule.

Although a three-hour delay allowed Munster to carry out their final-round Champions Cup game with Castres in Limerick, a whole host of GAA matches were called off - O'Moore Park in Portlaoise offering an example of how bad conditions could get.

Yet, in Kildare, Naas and Tullow decided to embrace the rain - and their Provincial Towns Cup match has thrown up some incredible pictures. With the ground staff desperately trying to relieve the pitch of its biblical pourings of rain, there was a special guest in attendance.

And that special guest, Leinster, Ireland and Tullow club-man Sean O'Brien of course.

Despite the best efforts to remove excess water however, neither the players of Naas or Tullow let it bother them.

At the end of such a challenging afternoon, it was the men from Tullow who were victorious; 11-6 the final score.

Although KFM Sport perhaps summed up that Naas deserved some praise of their own for keeping things going amid such conditions.
