ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
Perpignan kept their own ambitions of place in the last eight alive with their own 50-15 bonus point victory over Spanish part-timers Bizkaia Gernika RT at the Urbieta Rugby Sport Centre.
The Catalans, who reached the 2003 Heineken Cup final, scored eight tries but their win means both sides will be keeping an eye on each other's final game with both side on 20 points.
The Worcester Warriors face Bizkaia Gernika RT at home at the Sixways Stadium and Perpignan host Rovigo at the Stade Aime Giral and both sides will be looking for wins to keep the pressure on each other.
If both teams cannot yet be separated on points after the final game of the Pool, the number of tries scored in their head-to-head games will then come into play and Perpignan have a 3-1 try advantage over the Warriors.
