WHEN it rains, it pours. And it poured rain whole of yesterday.
As a result nearly all sports in the Eastern Division were either called off or postponed.
While the major rugby competition — Skipper Cup match between Tailevu and Macuata went on as scheduled at Ratu Cakobau Park and the Suva Volleyball Association moved their games indoors to the FMF Gymnasium, other sporting organisations decided not to take the risk.
Athletics, basketball, golf, netball, soccer, touch rugby were among those sports that didn't want to compete on wet surfaces as sporting venues were flooded because of to the persistent and heavy rain.
Even the SCW 7s tournament scheduled to be played at the Suva Grammar School grounds was called off.
Tournament organiser Wame Ratadai said they would make a decision regarding the tournament later in the week.
"Rain has been forecast for a few days so we will just have to wait for it to stop," he said.
