Leeds awarded Calvisano victory
HEINEKEN CUP POOL TWO
Leeds have been awarded their twice-postponed Heineken Cup match at Calvisano after organisers found the Italian side guilty of misconduct.

Heineken Cup organiser ERC ruled that the game, postponed last Saturday and Sunday, should not be replayed.

Leeds were awarded a bonus point as well as victory because they remained available to complete the fixture.

Calvisano have been charged with not preparing a suitable venue and refusing to fulfil a rescheduled fixture.

The decision leaves Leeds level with Cardiff Blues on 15 points, three points behind pool leaders Perpignan.

Calvisano are bottom of Pool Two with no points.

The fixture was due to be played on Saturday, but a stretch of the pitch in front of the grandstand at the San Michele Sports Centre remained frozen.

Referee George Clancy passed the pitch fit for play on Sunday, but Leeds coach Daryl Powell was still not happy with it and the game was postponed again.
