Match postponed | Benetton
The Round 11 Guinness PRO14 fixture between Glasgow Warriors and Benetton Rugby has been postponed due to persisting severe weather conditions.
The game was due to take place on Saturday 13 February at Scotstoun Stadium, however the freezing temperatures in Glasgow are not expected to change over the weekend.
Glasgow Warriors’ stadium team have made their best efforts to clear the snow, as well salt and brush the playing surface all week but an inspection this morning has shown that the pitch is frozen. A yellow weather warning for ice and snow is in place for Glasgow, and across Scotland, on Saturday which means it will not be possible for the pitch to return to a playable condition and ensure player safety in time for the game happen. The early decision has also taken into consideration Benetton’s travel arrangements.
Alongside the club, PRO14 Rugby has taken the decision to postpone the game and will announce rescheduled details shortly.
Guinness PRO14 has thanked the club for the proactive efforts during the week to give the fixture every possible chance of being played in the face of severe weather conditions.
