ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
Gloucester boss Nigel Melville following his side's win over Northampton in the Zurich Premiership:
"It was a huge win - you have got to win games like that, and we came through it.
"I thought the significant point of the game was Paul Grayson going off. He has the experience, and we made a conscious effort in the second half to put pressure on the replacement No. 10 James Brooks."
Neath coach Lyn Jones after his team's Welsh Premiership victory over Caerphilly: "The conditions were so bad that after 10 minutes the game became a lottery and all our pre-match plans went out of the window.
"Having said that we were pleased to have won the game and pleased to see a referee showing some sympathy towards the situation."
Toulouse Director of Rugby Guy Noves after their 43-20 home victory over Perpignan: "I think we can call out first half performance against Perpignan superb. In total we scored 43 points and if we had been able to capitalise on three or four other opportunities, we could have scored 60 points.
"It was good rugby in front of a big crowd. I think the players were determined to prove themselves after week's defeat, and because of Trevor Brennan's suspension, which everybody feels was an injustice.
"We undoubtedly benefited from the fact that Perpignan are going through a tough period, so we won't be getting carried away.
Leicester boss Dean Richards after his side's 9-6 victory over London Wasps:
"I'm just glad that we came away with a victory because the conditions out there were atrocious."
"It wasn't a great performance but then I'm not concerned by that. I'm not going to start blaming the players - it was very hard out there.
"But we deserved to win - we created more chances and spent more time in their half."
