ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
"Quintin is a greatly experienced player and a serious professional," Director of Rugby Roberto Manghi said. "He will be very important for our pack and our team in general. Over the pasat seasons, Geldenhuys was on the international stage and we're really happy he has committed to the Zebre project for the coming season."
"Zebre are working to line up a competitive team, an interesting mix of experienced guys and emerging young players," Geldenhuys said. " I'll do my best to bring my experience and what I've learnt in the last two seasons playing RaboDirect PRO12 and Heineken Cup rugby for Aironi."
Zebre will feature in Pool 3 of the next season's Heineken Cup with Biarritz, Harlequins and Connacht Rugby.
