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."
