The Pro14 clash between Edinburgh and Glasgow Warriors to be played at Scotstoun Stadium on Friday has been postponed for the second time due to frozen pitch.

With the temperature dipping to -4C, the artificial pitch in the stadium made the conditions unplayable. The derby game was originally scheduled on 27th December but was postponed due to Covid-19.

Edinburgh best online pokies head coach Richard Cockerill expressed disappointment on the news but insisted that the right decision was made.

"The players went out to do their primer, which is just a warm-up before the main warm-up, and a few players were saying the far side was very hard and it was hard to get any purchase," said Cockerill.

"The plastic grass on the top was soft but underneath it was very hard and wouldn't take a stud.

"The ground staff did some work on it and we continued with the warm-up as normal but once we got to scrummaging over on the far side, all the front row players couldn't get any grip at all, they just slid straight to their faces.

"It was impossible to scrummage on so it certainly wasn't fit to play best real money online casino on.

"You want to play so you would like to think you wouldn't get to this point."

Glasgow Warriors are positioned fifth in the Conference A with two wins from nine games while Edinburgh are placed fifth in Conference B after managing three victories from eight matches.
