The European Rugby Challenge Cup Pool 1, Round 4 match between Timisoara Saracens and Northampton Saints has been cancelled owing to an unfit playing surface.

Heavy snow had rendered the pitch at the Dan Paltinisanu Stadium unplayable, leaving Match Referee Joy Neville with no option but to cancel the fixture. With snow continuing to fall in Romania, no alternative options were available to play the match.

The Northampton Saints squad and management team are returning to England.

The fixture will be the subject of a review which will take place shortly, and EPCR will be making no further comment until a decision is announced.
