IT IS fully intended that tonight's Guinness Premiership match between Gloucester Rugby and Newcastle Falcons will go ahead. However, there will be a pitch inspection at 4.30pm by referee Rob Debney owing to the fog.
The inspection will take place with the floodlights on to try and best recreate match conditions in and around the stadium.
News of the inspection will be made as soon as possible after it has been conducted, and Gloucester Rugby apologise for any inconvenience or uncertainty in the meantime and ask supporters to keep in touch on the website at www.gloucesterrugby.co.uk and the local media for updates.
