ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
Three successive continental wins would give the Scarlets just their second trophy since the inception of regionalism back in 2003 and their first-ever piece of European silverware.
"Once you have a taste of success, you want it more and more often," Davies told ercrugby.com ahead of the last-eight encounter with Brive at the Stadium Municipal.
"To be playing in the knockout stages of tournaments at the end of the season is the most important thing for us. It's exciting times at the Scarlets.
"The boys are looking forward to it and we've just got to make sure we perform to the level we know we can. That will be tough in Brive but the confidence the boys have at the moment will stand us in good stead."
The Scarlets have had mixed experiences on their most recent trips to France, with a heavy defeat at Toulon sandwiched between two impressive wins against Castres and Sunday's opponents Brive.
Brive were beaten in the pool stages of the 2010 Heineken Cup, while Castres came a cropper in the Scarlets' latest European fixture.
Those successes on the road have reminded Davies and co of the potential of this particular pack of Scarlets, while the poor showing against Toulon in the quarter-finals of the 2010 Amlin Challenge Cup has also been sighted as a key learning curve in their development.
"We went out to Toulon a couple of years ago and that was a very tough game that we learned a lot from," added Davies.
"We'll understand what's needed of us now. We got beaten up and we didn't really show up in the right frame of mind that day. We now know what's expected.
"Although a lot of the boys are young, we've had experience at the highest level. We've got to make sure we deliver now because it's an exciting time to be part of this squad.
"We travelled to Brive two years ago in the Heineken Cup and got a good result then. It was a really tough place to go, though. The support there means it's a really exciting atmosphere to be a part of.
"I think the win over Castres will help. That was another tough place to go. We had another good away win at Northampton in the Heineken Cup as well. If anything, we might even play better away from home.
"It's going to be a tough ask against Brive but, with this group of players that we've got, I think we can go out there and expect to get the right result."
