Aled Brew hopes he has put himself in contention for the Amlin Challenge Cup semi-finals after returning to action on Saturday.
The Wales wing has been sidelined with an ankle injury but made his comeback in Biarritz Olympique's 16-0 defeat to Bordeaux-Bègles on Saturday.
The Basque club face reigning Heineken Cup kings Leinster in the semi-finals on Saturday and Brew is desperate to be involved.
"I was out for a couple of weeks with an ankle sprain," said Brew.
"It was a good chance to put myself in contention. Our young winger has been scoring plenty of tries lately so it is good to be back in the mix and able to put my hand up for the semi-final."
Brew already has experience of European knockout rugby having reached the Amlin Challenge Cup semi-finals with Newport Gwent Dragons in 2007.
He was unsuccessful on that occasion as the Welsh region crashed to a 46-29 defeat to French giants Clermont Auvergne.
But he admits the chance of qualifying for next season's Heineken Cup will be a major carrot for Biarritz.
"It would be up there with the biggest matches of my career and we have a more realistic chance than the semi-final I played in with the Dragons. Clermont were a massive team then and are even bigger now," added Brew.
"But we want to qualify for the Heineken Cup and it's a chance to finish the season with some silverware. It would be great to do that for the town of Biarritz and its supporters."
The directors of ERC voted unanimously at a Board meeting to postpone all decisions including the release of further instalments of ERC's distributable central revenues to the six shareholder countries until 19 February next when the Board will meet again to reconsider the issue.
