A Federal 2 rugby match was canceled this Sunday in Saint-Sulpice-la-Pointe (Tarn).

And the reason is unusual to say the least.

Rabbits ravaged and made holes on the field of the local XV, which was to face the Stade Olympique Millavois Rugby Aveyron.

According to the town hall quoted by

Midi Libre

, “several players have twisted their ankles”.

A request to play the match in Millau

An order prohibiting access to the land has also been taken.

"We have a pest problem throughout the complex", also indicated to


the sports and entertainment department of the City of Saint-Sulpice-la-Pointe.

Officials hope that the ground will be practicable again for October 16 and the reception of the Gaillac club.

The match against Millau could finally take place this Sunday in Aveyron.

A request has been made to the federation.
