ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.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 bonus point wrapped up by half-time, which was good and better than we did out in Romania," he said.
"We were a little bit sloppy in the first 15 minutes and were in their 22 five times and didn't convert until we got that penalty try from the scrum.
"Stade have got quite a big points difference and we have closed the gap somewhat today which is good.
"We have got Parma at home to come and we would expect to get a good win here. Stade have got to go to Bucharest in January when it is normally thick snow so there is no guarantee they are going to win or by a big margin. We can close the gap again.
"What this means is that, provided we get the five points against Parma, then we go to Paris and it is all on that, the winner will come from that game. We will take the strongest possible side out there and try and get the win."
