ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
"We had the belief to come here and win but we made a few errors that cost us and they are a dangerous side," said Cockerill
"The spirit and stubbornness of the players was excellent especially in that spell where we were under severe pressure at the end of the first half. You can't coach that. It is one of the positives we will take from the game.
"We had to come away with at least a point. We didn't want to go back home with nothing because this is such a tight group and every point will count for something in the end."
"We have a very good home record but we will take nothing for granted next week. Perpignan are a dangerous team and a good side and we will need to step it up again next week."
