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.
Up to 18,000 Leinster fans will be at the redeveloped RDS to witness the much anticipated Heineken Cup Pool matches against the 2007 Heineken Cup finalists Leicester, triple Heineken Cup champions Toulouse and last season's Pool rivals Edinburgh.
Meanwhile, Leinster will travel to face 2006 Heineken Cup finalists Biarritz away on the 31 August (KO: tbc) before embarking on a week's long training camp in Barcelona prior to the start of the new season.
The camp will conclude with another mouth-watering fixture against Bath in The Recreation Ground on Friday, 7 September (KO: 6.30pm).
