Connacht's Pro12 game against Treviso in Italy on Saturday was postponed minutes before the scheduled kick-off because of a waterlogged pitch.

After this week's heavy rain in Italy, the conditions at the Stadio di Monigo were seemed unfit for play.

Connacht fly-half Dan Parks was out on the field practising his kicking when news of the postponement was announced.

The game will be re-arranged for one of the weekends when the Pro12 will be on a break because of European action.

Treviso are currently seventh in the table with Connacht in ninth spot.
