ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.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 former Wales captain will be the oldest player in the 13th season of the Heineken Cup with - entirely appropriately - Leicester Tigers' scrum half Ben Youngs the youngest at just 18 years and 62 days when the Tigers launch their challenge against Leinster in Dublin on the opening Saturday.
And while there is close to a 20-year age gap between Llewellyn and Youngs - with Youngs less than two months old when Llewellyn made his Test debut - there is also a massive 70kgs difference between Biarritz Olympique and Tonga prop Mosese Moala and Stade Français Paris' scrum half Terry Bouhraoua
