Ulster's Guinness PRO12 clash with Zebre was called off due to a frozen pitch at the Kingspan Stadium.

Welsh referee Craig Evans - who was due to referee his first PRO12 game - postponed the match an hour-and-a-half before kick-off despite efforts being made to thaw out the surface.

The game will now be rescheduled with the weekends beginning January 27 and February 3 being the closest free dates.
