ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
The former France international wing is pleased to be returning to a ground that holds many happy memories for him.
'It's great!" he said.
"I am truly happy to learn our Heineken Cup quarter final will be played there. Lansdowne Road, I only have good memories as a rugby player and also as a spectator.
"I remember I almost finished my career player scoring a try under the posts in 1991 against Ireland.
"Serge Blanco had weaved his way through four defenders, then I crossed behind him, he gave me the ball and I only had to run, but as I approached the line, I injured my knee, but I have happy memories of the stadium and the city.
"I love Dublin, Ireland and their fabulous supporters.'
Biarritz extended their Heineken Cup campaign with a fantastic 13 try romp to beat Cardiff 75-25 in Round 6, and with that they qualified as one of the best runners-up.
They will face the only side that remained unbeaten in the Pool stages, Leinster Lions, at Lansdowne Road on Saturday 12th April 2003 - (kick-off 3.35pm)
