Even if there were as many words in the English language to describe rain as there (reputedly) are Eskimo words for snow it would still be a struggle to adequately convey how bad the weather was on Saturday.
The wind and rain that lashed London on Saturday not only wreaked havoc with some high profile Gallagher Premiership games but matches further down English rugby’s food chain.

London Welsh’s top of the table clash with Old Streetonians in London & SE Division Three North West, as a result of the torrid conditions ended 0-0.
“It was an absolutely mad game to be involved in,” revealed former Ospreys man Cai Griffiths, who has shed more than three stone from his days propping in professional rugby to play lock for the Exiles.
“In all the years I’ve been playing rugby I’ve never been involved in a 0-0 and the weather on Saturday down on the Hackney Marshes made the game all that more crazy.
“We’re joint top of the table with them and this was the match of the day in the division and I couldn’t believe it.
“Speaking to our hard core of supporters they thought for a 0-0, it was quite an entertaining game.
