ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
BRIVE CONTINUE FRENCH DOMINANCE
Brive carried on from where Toulouse left off the previous year: claiming the Heineken Cup following their defeat of Leicester.
With tries from Carrat (2), Viars and Fabre, Brive proved too strong for a Leicester side who were restricted to just three penalties from veteran kicker John Liley. Despite the Leicester side containing international stars such as Dean Richards and Rory Underwood, the French team were worthy winners.
