ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.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 also learned from the Pool games this season against Clermont and Leicester and we spoke about all of those things at half time. That experience helped us and the more you play the less inclined you are to make the same mistakes again," Muller added.
"This was a special effort by everyone. We were 19 points up and something had to go pretty wrong for us to lose, and okay, we nearly did, but it was a special victory. Still, we realise we haven't achieved anything yet. We have a semi-final spot - and that's it!"
Muller's view was echoed by Head Coach, Brian McLaughlin, who was also looking ahead to the semi-final against Edinburgh Rugby in Dublin on Saturday, 28 April. "The win over Munster was probably the culmination of three years of hard work. When he played Northampton in the last eight last season, he went with hope. This time there was genuine expectation, so we see this as the start of something, not the end.
"The victory is the biggest highlight of my rugby career to date, and 19-0 up was a dream start, but we're not there yet. Edinburgh showed what they can do against the favourites Toulouse, so we're under no illusions. The semi-final will be another challenge, but we've been trying to build self-belief among the players, and all in all we played brilliantly against Munster."
