The game was due to take place on Saturday, February 13 in at Scotstoun Stadium, however, freezing temperatures occurred in Glasgow overnight (Wednesday, February 11) and are not expected to change over the weekend.

Glasgow Warriors stadium team have made their best efforts to clear snow, 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 to take place. 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.

The tournament would also like to thank Glasgow Warriors for their proactive efforts during the week to give the fixture every possible chance of being played in the face of severe weather conditions.
