It's down to the wire now for the five contenders who have been shortlisted for the ultimate individual accolade in northern hemisphere rugby, ERC European Player of the Year 2013.
Following medical consultation, the player has been advised to rest for at least a fortnight - ruling him out of the crunch encounter at Lansdowne Road.
"I am very disappointed not to be playing in the quarter-finals," said Laharrague.
"I have already missed a month because of a broken hand, and now two more weeks of unavailability.
"The muscles are torn, but the important thing is that the ligaments are not damaged, otherwise I could have been out for much longer," he added.
