The Aviva Premiership match between Newcastle and Leeds at Kingston Park has been called off.

- 0

The match was originally scheduled to take place on Boxing Day but was postponed by 24 hours due to a frozen pitch.

Hot-air blowers were used on the pitch on Monday and an initial inspection planned for 9am was delayed until noon to give it more time to thaw out.

But there were still frozen patches when the match officials and team coaches inspected the surface.
