Following a 9am pitch inspection at Sardis Road this morning, which determined that the ground was unplayable, Pontypridd's British & Irish Cup tie against Ayr has now been moved to the Glamorgan Wanderers ground, to be played tomorrow (KO 12:30pm).
The Ayr squad and officials had arrived in Wales last evening, and were fully involved in the decision making, as were match officials and representatives of both the WRU and RFU.
Pontypridd are grateful to all parties for their co-operation, and in particular to Glamorgan Wanderers for accommodating this important fixture at such short notice.
