ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
McGahan was defence coach when Munster won the Heineken Cup in 2006 and 2008 before taking over the top job from Declan Kidney. This season he has guided his squad to an impressive six wins out of six the pool stage to set up an intriguing all-Irish quarter-final against Ulster at Thomond Park on Sunday, 8 April.
All indications are that the quarter-final will be yet another sell-out at the iconic Limerick venue with the winners assured of home country advantage in the semi-final against the winners of the Edinburgh Rugby v Toulouse game.
