ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
It means the Irish international will miss Saturday's return match with the Ospreys at the Liberty Stadium, but will be available for rounds five and six next month. He will also miss three Magners League matches before being able to return to action from 9 January, 2011.
After the hearing the Munster team manager, Shaun Payne, said the club would wait until they recieved the full judgement before deciding whether or not to launch an appeal.
