ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
The Stade Francais player has 27 Heineken Cup caps to his credit and will be sorely missed by the Parisian side when they travel to Leicester for the knock-out game against the double Heineken Cup winners.
The Italian flanker will miss the last weekend of the RBS Six Nations on Saturday against Ireland after.
Bergamasco is a talented and versatile operator and scored the winning try against Wales. He had started the game at openside flanker before moving to the centre after Canale limped off with a thigh injury.
