GLOUCESTER'S Guinness Premiership match against Newcastle was postponed 25 minutes before the scheduled kick-off.
The referee Mr Rob Debney took the decision to postpone the match on safety grounds after consultation with both head coaches, Gloucester's Dean Ryan and Newcastle's John Fletcher.
Ryan told www.gloucesterrugby.co.uk he felt the match was playable: "I am disappointed we are not playing because in my opinion it was playable - but it was solely the referee's decision."
A date for the rearranged fixture will be announced in due course. For season ticket holders, another ticket within the booklet will be allocated so no further action is required.
Supporters who purchased tickets on the internet or over the phone will automatically be posted new tickets. Should they not be able to make the re-arranged fixture, they will be required to contact the ticket office and exchange the tickets for an alternative match.
Anybody supporter who purchased tickets at the ticket office will need to return the stubs to Kingsholm once the date has been confirmed.
