ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
But David Young, the former Cardiff Blues coach, will be taking nothing for granted when he travels with his in-form Wasps side to face the Newport Gwent Dragons at Rodney Parade.
The Welsh region may have struggled to make a dent in this season's tournament but their young side's performance in their narrow 25-22 defeat to Bayonne in France impressed everyone.
London Wasps won the opening Pool game between the two sides by 38-25 at Adam Park but they will be determined to get all the points to make sure they avoid the three Heineken Cup Pool runners up who join the tournament in the knockout stages.
Bayonne, who missed an opportunity to keep themselves in the hunt for a quarter-final place when they only just beat the Dragons, travel to Italy to face part-timers Rugby Mogliano.
