The weather can cause many problems but in some countries players are used on bad weather conditions and sometimes they use it in their own favour.

The pitches in my country are in a terrible condition unfortunately and sometimes the matches have to be postponed.

He was worried about the weather conditions and he wasn't sure if he should water the pitch or not.

The listening was easy.The grounsman's job is not so difficult. In our country a lot pitches in the first two Leagues are plastic made from. Few natural pitches are good. When there is a lot of rain pitches suffers and it can happen to postpone some matches. Dry conditions affects often the natural pitches as well as the plastic pitches.

It was so easy and really love it , I've learned new interesting things .
I see it's an easy job but needs skills to do it .
In my country we have the worst pictures in the world because of the weather , it reaches above 50*c which isn't good for the Picth.
It does , sunny weather may burn the grass and rainy weather ruins it by making clay .
