ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
Callard, who joined the Tykes in July 2002, added, "I am flattered to be linked with the Leinster job but I feel it is too soon in my career to take on such a role. There is still lots for me to learn and develop in my coaching career and the job has not been done here at Leeds yet, hopefully I can be part of seeing that through."
The full Tykes squad reports back for the start of pre-season training on Monday 21st July.
Leeds will be in Pool 2 of next seasons Heineken Cup were they will face Toulouse, Edinburgh Rugby, Neath/Swansea
