ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
A move back to the Australian set up may have taken the experienced full back out of the Falcons' European Challenge Cup knock-out campaign which starts with a quarter-final away to ASM Clermont Auvergne on Friday, 30 March.
Falcons fans will be delighted with Burke's decision as the 33 year old has already scored three tries in his four appearances in this European campaign. Burke has scored a total of 115 points in Europe since joining Falcons in 2004.
