The decision by Anglo Welsh LV Cup officials to award Saracens a bonus point victory for their match against Newport Gwent Dragons has been overturned.

The Anglo Welsh LV Cup match between Newport Gwent Dragons and Saracens was postponed when the Rodney Parade pitch froze in overnight temperatures of -8C despite having pitch covers over the pitch and double covers in vulnerable areas.

Following an appeal hearing, the intial decision has now been quashed with the match instead being awarded a 0-0 draw and the region's suspended fine being reduced from 10,000 to 5,000.

Dragons interim Chief Executive Chris Brown said "We are obviously disappointed that the game against Saracens cannot be re-scheduled but we are pleased by the ruling of the Appeals Panel in this matter."

The result of the math had no effect on the wide tournament as both teams were already out of the running for the Anglo Welsh LV Cup play offs.
