London's Olympic Stadium held its first competitive ball game for the first time in three years this weekend, but memories of the epic Opening Ceremony quickly faded, as the venue suffered a host of problems during the match.
In bizarre scenes during a pre-Rugby World Cup game, the water supply to the pitch turned on during play, showering players with water. See the video above.
The match was a "test event" for the venue, and a "worthy warm up fixture" for Barbarians and Samoa, according to the Olympic Park's website .
It sold the event as the first chance "to see the refurbished Stadium lit up for a rugby match ahead of the Rugby World Cup".
But in further embarrassment to the flagship venue, problems with the Wi-Fi connection and visibility from certain seats led fans to take to Twitter to complain.
The first World Cup game at the stadium will be France v Romania on 23 September.
The stadium will be home to West Ham United from 2016.
