Gloucester's A League game against Saracens, which was scheduled to take place on Monday evening, has unfortunately fallen victim to the weather and had to be postponed.
Despite the best efforts of the Kingsholm ground staff, the freezing conditions over the past couple of days have left the pitch dangerously hard in places and therefore unfit to play.
The pitch was covered as quickly as possible following Saturday's Guinness Premiership match at home to the Worcester Warriors but a lot of the warmth in the pitch was lost as a result of fulfilling that fixture and temperatures have not risen above freezing since.
The club took the step of calling in Guinness Premiership referee Chris White to ratify the decision on Monday morning with an early call judged the best way to proceed given that supporters may have been travelling to attend the game.
Details of the rearranged fixture will be communicated as soon as possible.
