ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.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 big match in France this weekend is Toulouse against Perpignan. Both sides are in desperate need of a change of luck after poor results in recent weeks. Yannick Bru has ruled himself out after an alleged incident after last Saturday's match.
Toulouse and Agen will be without Trevor Brennan and Luk Lafforgue respectively. Both players received red cards in last week's match between the two clubs, receiving 10 days suspension.
Montferrand have a flu epidemic that is keeping a number of players out of the squad for their match against Bourgoin. Oliver Magne will captain Montferrand.
