Glasgow Warriors P - P Benetton Treviso

GUINNESS PRO12 match played at Firhill on Friday December 3rd 2010 | No comments

Glasgow Warriors' Magners League match with Treviso, scheduled for Friday night, has been called off due the severe weather conditions in Glasgow over the last few days.

A number of factors were taken into consideration with the overriding concern being the safety of spectators travelling to and from the match.

Warriors chief executive, Kenny Baillie, said: "It is with regret that we have had to call tomorrow evening's match off.

"The condition of the pitch was improving all the time, thanks to the significant efforts of our ground staff and the under soil heating at Firhill, but our main priority is spectator safety. With no guarantee of the weather conditions improving between now and Friday evening, we decided to call the match off.

"We were also mindful that Treviso needed an answer before their departure," he added.

Glasgow head coach, Sean Lineen, commented: "I know that everything was done to try and have the game go ahead but unfortunately, when everything was taken into consideration, common sense prevailed.

"It's now all systems go for our European cup match next week against Toulouse," said the Warriors boss.
