ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
Click here to listen to Austin Healey's predictions that Munster and Biarritz will be the teams to watch in 2006/07 Heineken Cup, and his thoughts ahead of Round 3 & 4.
"Mike Catt is far too old to be playing rugby and everyone knows that."...listen to the full interview here.
Healey made his European debut in the 43-3 home win over Scottish Borders on 19 October, 1996 and scored crucial tries for the Tigers' on their march to the final against Llanelli in the Pool stages and Toulouse in the semi-final.
Leicester were beaten 28-9 by Brive in the 1997 final at Cardiff Arms Park and were knocked-out in the quarter-finals the following year. He was the chief inspiration behind the sensational Leicester triumph in the 2001 final against Stade Francais at Parc des Princes.
His switch from scrum half to outside half late in the game transformed the game as he paved the way for Leon Lloyd to notch his second try. He won the Man of the Match award in Paris and was also given the accolade the following year in Cardiff when the Tigers' made it back to back victories.
This time he started at outside half and scored one of his side's two tries in a 15-9 win over Munster at the Millennium Stadium.
In all he made 53 appearances in the Heineken Cup for Leicester Tigers, scored 13 tries and 76 points.
Austin also played 51 times for England and won two British & Irish Lions Test caps in 1997 in South Africa. He also toured with the Lions in Australia in 2001.
