ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
Paulse has been suspended from all rugby for a period of three weeks, up to and including Sunday, 11 September.
THe 29 year old wing will be unable to take any further part in the Tri-Nations series and may now focus his attention on joining Clermont Averngne who got their French Top 14 campaign off to a winning start against Pau at the weekend.
Paulse's first taste of Heineken Cup action looks likely to be their opening Pool 3 Round 1 match against Leicester Tigers on Saturday, 21 October.
