ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
Operations director John Steele said today: "We were disappointed with Darren's actions as they are not in keeping with either the way we play the game or conduct ourselves. An internal disciplinary committee fined Darren, who has made it clear he regrets his actions.
"Although the club has not chosen to appeal, it was disappointed in the inconsistency between the ban for Darren Fox and the equivalent ban on Agen's Jean-Jacques Crenca, who was found guilty of head-butting Steve Thompson last year and received a three-week ban."
