The weather in Sydney has looked like this for the last few days. Wet. Trust me - I know. I have ridden through those green patches and gotten thoroughly soaked.
This photo shows one of our Council parks on Monday morning - although rain was forecast, the sprinklers were going full blast.
They were still going full blast when I rode past on the way home 10 hours later. Needless to say, no one was doing any rugby training, as the ground had turned into a swimming pool by that point.
