The weather continues to have a devastating effect on the weekend's sports programme and, although two Barclay's Premier League matches avoided Saturday's cull, all three of Sunday's scheduled games have been postponed.

The high profile meeting of Chelsea and Manchester United at Stamford Bridge was first to be called off but it has been joined on the casualty list by the game between Blackpool and Tottenham, and the meeting of West Brom and Wolves.


Saturday's meeting at Navan went ahead without incident but there will be a 7.30am inspection ahead of tomorrow's scheduled fixture at the Co. Meath track.

Sunday's meeting at Thurles is also subject to an early morning inspection. The hurdle course is currently fit for racing with the ground described as yielding to soft.

The steeplechase course remains unfit for racing, however, due to frost.

The weather is also playing havoc with racing in England, with all but one of today's meetings definitely off.

In Britain, Sunday's cards at Carlisle and Kempton (all-weather) have both been abandoned.


In Leinster, the Leinster Club JHC, JFC and IFC finals are all off.


Toulouse's Heineken Cup tie with Glasgow had been moved to Sunday but now the rescheduled game will not go ahead. The decision was made due to continuing delays in the arrival of Glasgow's equipment.
