ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.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 double Heineken Cup winners, who lifted the trophy in 2001 and 2002, will be aware that a trip to Italy in a Pool game has the look of a potential banana skin for the English giants.
The Tigers have already endured a difficult start to their season and lie in 10th place in their domestic league and a trip to face Aironi at the 18,568 seater at Stadio Brianteo in Monza will be a daunting one.
