ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
An interception try by centre Guilaume Bousses briefly kept them in the game at Stade Felix Mayol against the Heineken Cup quarter-finalists.
But the loss of captain Sergio Parisse to the sin bin in the second-half proved costly as 14-man Stade conceded two tries in the rout that left them 10th in the domestic table.
Cheika said: "We matched Toulon in many areas but the yellow card hurt us. There are clearly a few things we must improve this week and we will need to step up if we're going to win that quarter-final."
