ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
Gloucester's club doctor Rob Mackay was in positive mood on Wednesday after the management team had received feedback from the specialists.
Commenting on www.gloucesterrugbyclub.com Mackay said: "There is no problem involving the spinal cord or nerve structure, which is positive news."
McRae was back at home in a neck brace on Saturday evening after the game, and the Club's medical team will be keeping a close-eye on his progress.
"Duncan has soft tissue and ligament damage in his neck. He's got to follow a rehabilitation programme, but it is too early to say with certainty as to the length of time he'll be missing from the first team, but we are talking a matter of weeks rather than months," added Mackay.
McRae had been in superb form for the Kingsholm club in recent weeks, slotting four drop-goals in nine games before the Ulster clash, and adding pin-point accuracy with his boot in open play.
Director of rugby Nigel Melville said: "Duncan is a tough character, but it was a big shock to him. He's seeing the physio and on the path to recovery, but we won't be rushing him back."
