ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
However they are not sure what to expect from Viadana, who ran Biarritz close in their opening game, as Glasgow have been unable to get hold of a video of that game and are relying on footage from a pre-season Viadana match for analysis.
"Last week we came fairly close in the end but this week we need to get a win under our belts. If we can do that and then go well against Biarritz then we can still qualify for the later stages," said Turner.
"We are confident we can do that, I have been here four years and this is the best feeling I have had - there seems to be a real belief in the team, even when we were down against Saracens we thought we could win and we almost did.
"We can be competitive with all teams. Getting the win against Viadana is important, but in terms of the Heineken Cup and getting through the group stages it is fairly important we get that bonus point as well.
"It has been highlighted by the coaches and management that we need that bonus point, but on the day you just have to try to win and then look at that opportunity if it comes along.
"I played with Calvin Howarth when he was at Glasgow and they have some other Kiwis, they pushed Biarritz all the way but hopefully we can win.
"We have only got a pre-season game so go on for analysis. We have been trying to track down the Biarritz game but we do not have it, we are going in blind with Viadana because they will have changed a lot so we are focussing on our game."
