Making a real splash

WET weather hit the Coffs Coast with a vengeance on Saturday as hours of constant heavy rain forced plenty of locals inside.

But the touch football finals at BCU Stadium carried on, with some spectacular results.

The storm including thunder and lightning couldn't deter these brave souls, pictured right, from scoring a try through the pools of water that quickly engulfed the field.

About 38mm of rain fell during Saturday afternoon's deluge, but by yesterday morning blue skies had returned to the Coffs Coast.
