ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
They go into the second leg semi-final against Connacht with a nine-point advantage from the first leg at The Stoop but with Vos, who captained South Africa 16 times and won 32 caps for his country, warning the job is only half done.
"We were fairly happy with the first-leg win and the points advantage we take into Sunday's match in Galway but we also know we have a tough challenge ahead of us, that we have to go over there and do a job," said the back row forward.
"The fact that the winner of the Parker Pen Challenge Cup automatically qualifies for the Heineken Cup is a big incentive because we want to test ourselves against the best sides in Europe - and the Heineken Cup is where the best sides compete.
"We did our homework on Connacht before the first leg and on the day it was fairly much what we expected - although I am sure both sides will have something in the bank with which to try and surprise the others on Sunday.
"Connacht have got a good pack of forwards and drive well, taking the ball up hard, and are a very physical side. We will be up for that physical challenge.
"I know that they will have the majority of the support in the capacity 6,000 crowd but we also get fantastic away support and I know our fans will make themselves heard."
