ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
"When Richard came to the club he was tasked primarily with one main objective - to get us back into the Aviva Premiership," he said.
"Not only has he delivered that but he has brought in a strong work ethic, winning culture and accountability across all departments.
"He is on his way to building what we believe will be a highly professional squad capable of achieving our aims and ambitions in the coming years."
