ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
"It was disappointed for them to get that bonus point. We've really got it all to do now," said Robinson.
"We still believe we have got a chance and it was vital we won the return game to have any chance of going through - at least we are still three.
"We knew that if we got back to basics and got control of the ball we could win this game .
"We have spend alto of the week studying the video of the game in Paris and we knew it would be a different contest in the Manchester weather."
Sale Sharks Director or Rugby Philippe Saint-Andre was left cursing his luck when David Skrela kicked an 85th minute penalty to bring Stade back to within seven points.
"We lost three points at the Ospreys when we conceded a try after 88 minutes and we lost a bonus point in Paris in the 79th minute last week," said Saint-Andre.
"We conceded a bonus point in the 85th minute of this game. But we will never give up fighting and we will work to the last game to try and qualify.
