Dragons fixture postponed due to frozen pitch
This Friday's night's rescheduled Round 7 Guinness PRO14 fixture against Dragons has been postponed due to a frozen pitch.
The game was due to take place tomorrow night (12 February, kick-off 7.35pm) at Rodney Parade, however, a large area of the pitch is currently frozen and temperatures will not rise above freezing in time for the pitch to be playable.
Taking into account player safety and travel arrangements, PRO14 Rugby, along with both clubs, has taken the decision to postpone the game. PRO14 Rugby will identify a rescheduled date as soon as possible.
Edinburgh Rugby Head Coach, Richard Cockerill, said: “It’s disappointing for everyone involved not to have the game go ahead, however the freezing conditions are such that simply wouldn’t be safe do so.
“In the absence of the game we’ll quickly turn our attention to preparing to face Munster at home next Saturday and await details of the rescheduled fixture date for Dragons, in due course.”
