ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
Jauzion learned about the size of the challenge awaiting Toulouse when they defend their European crown next season when the draw for the Heineken Cup pools for 20010/11 was made in Cardiff.
Toulouse have been drawn alongside previous tournament winners London Wasps and Magners League duo Glasgow Warriors and Newport Gwent Dragons.
"It doesn't really who you draw in the Heineken Cup, you always know you are going to get a difficult Pool," admitted Jauzion.
"Two years ago we won in Glasgow, but then lost to them in Toulouse. We can't base our knowledge on everything that has happened in the past, but we know that every game is going to be tough.
"Everyone goes back to zero at the start of a European campaign and in our eyes no team is stronger than any other. But what we do know is that London Wasps have had some great results in the tournament.
"As reigning champions we know that everyone will want to beat us and, even if we start as favourites, this is going to be a hard Pool to win. It is vital for us that we start well.
"It is always a great pleasure to play in the Heineken Cup and each European campaign provides us with a new beginning."
While they have never lost to the Dragons, and only once to the Warriors, Toulouse have traditionally struggled against London Wasps. A Lawrence Dallaglio inspired Wasps side scored nine tries in a 77-17 win over the then reigning champions at Loftus Road in a Pool game on 26 October, 1996 - still Toulouse's heaviest defeat in 110 Heineken Cup outings.
The teams have met three times since then, with Wasps winning the 2004 Heineken Cup final at Twickenham 27-20 and then drawing 15-15 at Adams Park in 2005. Toulouse won their only meeting on French soil.
