Best Way to Fix a Leak in Pool Drain Line

I have a leak in my Drain Line for my pool. I found the leak. It looks like a busted coupling.

My problem: I can cut the break out.. that's not a problem. The problem is, being underground, there is no play to in the pipe in which I can move it around enough to glue a replacement piece in.

Is the best way to repair being - I byte the bullet and dig up a long section of yard so that I would be able to provide some flexibility in the pipe or is there something out there that I could use where I don't need pipe flexibility?

Thanks in Advance!

plumbing stores will have a rubber type boot/coupler with clamps that you can use in the tight situation.
