ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.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 French side are in search of their fifth Heineken Cup title this season and face Leinster for the second year at the last four stage.
Last season saw Toulouse reach the final thanks to a 26 v 16 victory at the Stade Municipal and even though Dusautoir returned to action on the weekend he is not putting himself under pressure regarding Saturday's clash at the Aviva.
"I'm going to try to recuperate well but I'm not putting myself under any particular pressure regarding the European semi-final," he said.
"The aim was to return but I'm going to give myself a few matches to reach my peak. I felt good even if obviously I was a bit wary because it was the first time in a month that I'd had contact."
