Currently snowing in Twickenham and forecast says temperature will feel like -4c at kick off.

Wrap up warm!

I'm in Essex and we have about an inch of snow with lots more to come by the look of it. Can't see us getting anywhere as I'll need to leave in an hour or so in normal conditions.

Just about to leave the New Forest now. Its windy and wet but no snow.
Its a shame that the game wasn't yesterday!

About 4 inches sat on my car in Beds and the usual option of the train would be madness as itís bound to grind to a halt shortly if this keeps up, looks like an afternoon watching on the TV.

Moved from Leeds to Kettering earlier this year to be nearer to family ... at the same time making the journey to the Stoop much shorter

Woke up to a covering of snow ... it's still snowing with more forecast ... will give it a miss today sadly but at least it's on TV ... plus a few other cracking televised games in prospect

Safe journeys to all who decide to travel

COYQ !!

Have the club confirmed the game is on?

Game will be on - there's been a dusting of sleet.

Quins Twitter feed says the pitch is in great shape and the game is going ahead

Just slush on the ground at present so not much to worry about. Quite a few big puddles around on the roads though.

Our match appears to have been cancelled so I'll watch Quins having a snowball fight with their opposition instead smiling smiley

Same, rather relieved to be honest!

Saracens have called off their game at home to Clermont. I'm somewhat surprised, are plastic pitches worse in snow? Didn't we play them at the Allianz in much worse snow a few seasons ago?

Can't comment on Barnet but it's still snowing in Harrow and about 2 inches deep. I'd imagine that the issues at Allianz are the access tracks outside of the ground, and the vertiginous incline of the main stand, which has very shallow footing along each row.

...though judging from Ali Eykyn's Twitter feed, it doesn't look like much effort has been made to clear the pitch (tbf, not clear when photos were taken)

The Sarries cancellation isn't down to the pitch it's because of access on surrounding roads, I'm a few miles away and we have about 6 inches and the roads are gridlocked

The video Saracens have put onto Twitter showing a snowbound pitch doesn't help their case in that regard, unfortunately.

Good job Wasps are playing away - there would have been a run on take-away pizza in snow-bound Coventry!

I had to give up oon getting to the Stoop (for the first time in 5 years or so). The snow out here in South Oxon has caused major problems with roads and trains. The A34 and M40 shut in various locations, and trains delayed indefinitely at Didcot Parkway due to signal failures. Gutted to be missing it.

Why clear it if the game's not on? They clear it with a snow plough in approx 15 mins

That's not my point. It's not about the pitch, it's about publishing the video. Why show the pitch in that state when your point is that it is the surrounding infrastructure that is the problem? Did the club not anticipate that the video would not help their case?

Sat in a traffic jam for an hour before turning for home and made it in time to see the match on a live stream, probably would have been happier sat in the traffic to be honest,very poor show fro Quins.

OT.... This is nothing compared to the snow in Buffalo at the NFL game right now! Got to be playing with at least 9 inches of snow on the field & in a blizzard..!! Great fun!

Left Birmingham at 9.30 to get to game. Got home to Kew at 4.15. Not a fun day. Don't think I'll bother with highlights
