Consultation between the umpires now. It appears that that could be the end of the game. This pitch is unplayable. Waiting for official confirmation but it would seem as if it will be 2 points a side. One has to feel for the Dolphins in this situation. This will be the 5th game in their season that has been abandoned and ended in a no result. We are still waiting for official confirmation... Lions coach, Dave Nosworthy is having an animated discussion with groundsman Chris Scott. It appears that the game has been called off by the umpires. Certain players and coaches are still waiting in the players dug out. Confusion reigns at the Wanderers! We have official confirmation. The game has been called off due to the pitch being unplayable due to the adverse weather conditions in the past few days. This situation means that the Lions increase their lead by 2 at the top of the table. Thats it from me, Rob Sewell. Until next time, cheers!

This pitch is not playing well at all. Umpires now consulting about something. Must be about this pitch that has had 2 days of rain to contend with. Anyway, play will continue
