ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
Three other Glasgow players, Rory Kerr, Sam Pinder, and Colin Gregor, are having operations this week. Kerr is having a knee operation following injury last month whereas the two others are having groin surgery.
Because of the operations on Pinder and Gregor, Graeme Beveridge will be the only scrum half in Glasgow's squad for the Heineken Cup match against Northampton Saints at Franklin's Gardens on Friday evening. Beveridge and Pinder are the only scrum halves in the squad registered for the European competition, though Gregor was listed to cover that position as well as stand-off.
