A waterlogged pitch means Newport County's game against Forest Green Rovers today has been postponed.

Dragons drew 15-15 with Glasgow there in the Pro14 on Friday night.

It is the first postponement because of bad weather this season after a new drainage system and pitch was laid last summer.

Newport were due to return to their home ground three days after losing 2-0 to Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley in the FA Cup.
