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.
The son of Irish-born parents, Devlin has already signed for French side SC Albi on a one-year deal - the Midi-Pyrenees-based club, who confirmed the signings of Devlin and Samoan full-back Fili Fa'Atomu on Friday, won promotion to the French Top 14 championship this year. Albi have qualified for the 2006/07 European Challenge Cup for the first time.
Devlin made just 14 Celtic League appearances for Munster - including two games last season - while his one and only Heineken Cup cap for the men in red came as a substitute in the 2004/05 quarter-final against Biarritz.
