THE weekend's sports fixtures have all been postponed as the central belt continues to be battered by snow and sub-zero temperatures. 

The full card of junior football and rugby matches scheduled to take place on Saturday has been postponed. 

All four clubs had been scheduled in away matches, but the so-called 'Beast from the East' has put paid to those fixtures.

The games - Musselburgh Athletic's trip to Blackburn United, St Andrews Utd vs Tranent Juniors and Downfield vs Dunbar United in the East Premier League are off. 

Haddington Athletic's Fife and Lothians Cup tie with Edinburgh United has been re-arranged for next Saturday (March 10).

Meanwhile, no decision has been taken on the weekend's rugby fixtures, although postponements are expected to be announced tomorrow (Friday).

Edinburgh Rugby's Guinness Pro14 match with Munster at BT Murrayfield tomorrow is also off. 

And the rugby card has also been wiped out.

Tomorrow (Saturday) should have seen Musselburgh and Preston Lodge visit Aberdeen Gramamr and Biggar respectively, but those matches, and Haddington's match with Dalziel at Neilson Park, are off.

Also postponed is North Berwick's match with Broughton in East 1, which was due to be held at Recreation Park, and Ross High's East 2 trip to Barnton.

One event that WILL go ahead, though, is Josh Taylor's WBC Silver super lightweight defence in against Winston Campos in Glasgow on Saturday.

Promoters Cyclone Promotions moved the pre-fight press conference and weigh-in to a "more accessible" venue in Glasgow city centre, but told Courier Sport yesterday that the fight, due to be shown live on Channel 5, will go ahead.

Taylor is pictured below by Jennifer Charlton Photography at today's weigh-in.

The undercard is also set to feature Haddington ace Iain Trotter, who will fight for the Scottish middleweight title.
