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 ERC Board recognise there are many details to be resolved, such as tournament participation and shareholding commitments.
The ERC Board considers these to be a matter of absolute urgency in order to address the needs of the tournaments going forward.
On that basis, the ERC Board has agreed to meet again next Tuesday (8 April, 2003) to resolve these issues.
