ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
New Zealand-born Metcalfe made 40 appearances for his adopted nation before retiring from the international stage but was keen to see his club career remain at the top level.
When his chances of staying with the Warriors next season looked slim, he enlisted the help of former Scotland team-mate and Irish-based agent Shaun Longstaff.
Longstaff said: "Glenn was the benchmark for all rugby players in Scotland for some time in terms of attitude and ability both on and off the field.
"France will offer him a last taste of elite level rugby before he returns to his native New Zealand on the international stage but was keen to see his club career remain at the top level."
