ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
"Gareth Thomas has sustained damage to an artery in his neck, this caused the symptoms that he experienced on Sunday night and resulted in his admission to hospital," said Wales team doctor professor John Williams.
"We are expecting him to make a full recovery and it envisaged that he will be able to resume training after ten to twelve weeks."
Thomas who has played for four teams in the Heineken Cup joined Toulouse in 2004. "Alfie" has featured in all but one of Toulouse's 15 Heineken Cup games since his arrival, scoring four tries.
