ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
Northampton wing Ken Pisi made five clean breaks in the opening round of the Heineken Cup, more than any other player. However, he failed to convert any of them into tries.
Saints centre Dom Waldouck was the top tackler of round one, completing 19 tackles at a 100% success rate.
The Frenchmen have won just one of their last 10 Heineken Cup matches: 41-22 at home to opponents Northampton on 10 December 2011.
Northampton have lost only one of their last six clashes with Top 14 opponents: 22-41 at Castres last season.
