ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.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 Scots side does have history when it comes to beating big-name French sides in Europe, having beaten four-times Heineken Cup champions, Toulouse, away back in 2009.
Montpellier, who are in only their second season of Europe, will still be reeling from the brutal nature of the Heineken Cup narrowly losing out to both Leinster and Bath in the opening rounds of the Pool.
The French new boys reached last season's Top 14 final and still have much to play for in this Pool and will be determined to finish of their European campaign in some style.
