Heavy rain in the Western half of the country left The Recreation Ground flooded, and gave match referee Alan Lewis no choice but to call off the tie.

Lewis confimed that a pitch inspection would be taking place at 9am tomorrow, with the aim of playing the match in the afternoon.
Llanelli chief executive Stuart Gallacher expressed sympathy for Llanelli’s sizeable army of travelling supporters “It is a great disappointment – I feel so sorry for our fans, because this has been an expensive day for them.

“I don’t think that the pitch was playable, we will just have to wait and see what happens tomorrow.

Heineken Cup officials convened a meeting to discuss a potential alternative. Tournament rules state that the game should be played within 24 hours, but if not other arrangements should me made.

“I hope that the game is played here in Bath but we will just have to wait and see.” said Gallacher.
