With Biarritz Olympique and Cardiff Blues to come at home in the next two weeks, Toulouse coach Guy Noves sent largely a second string side to Paris to meet Stade Francais at Stade de France.
It was a decision that led to a 29-0 defeat - the first time this season his side had failed to score.
Noves is set to recall his French Six Nations stars for the clash with Biarritz at Le Stadium on Saturday .
Wing Yves Donguy picked up a leg strain in Paris that might rule him out of contention for this weekend, but he is expected to be fully fit to face the Blues. So, too, is international centre Florian Fritz, who has recovered from the broken leg sustained in training with the French squad during the Six Nations.
"What happened in the match against Paris is a disappointment for us. We thought we would be able to do a bit more, but we never got into the game - we were totally pushed onto the sidelines," admitted Noves.
As part of the build-up to next month's Cardiff 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals weekend, ERC has joined forces with the WRU, Cardiff Blues and adidas to develop an annual grassroots community rugby programme targeting young players.
The Ulster Rugby full back, Jared Payne (No 15), has been suspended for two (2) weeks following an independent Disciplinary Hearing in Dublin arising from the Heineken Cup quarter-final match against Saracens at Ravenhill Stadium on Saturday, 5 April.
