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.
London Wasps director of rugby Warren Gatland will issue his players with an ultimatum ahead of Sunday's PARKER PEN CHALLENGE CUP final against Bath Rugby at the Madejski Stadium, Reading: "You've got to keep our unbeaten record going."
The Adams Park-based club will have the shortest distance to travel of all four teams heading to Reading for the two Parker Pen finals on Sunday, and Gatland expects to take the silverware back home with him.
"We will be disappointed if we don't win. The campaign has been good for us this season and we've come away with some good results as the competition got harder," said Gatland.
"We've got two big games to go this season and we are pretty much injury free. Bath have been battling against relegation in recent weeks and I'm sure they will come looking to prove a point after securing their future in the Zurich Premiership.
"It's a massive incentive for them to qualify for the Heineken Cup and Sunday's result is going to be vitally important to them - both financially and from a player recruitment point of view."
Powerful backrower Joe Worsley added: "Wasps have been successful in Europe this year because our defence has been good, we haven't conceded many tries, and we got the basics right whenever we played away from home.
"We have put a lot of effort into this tournament. We have played a lot of difficult teams and beaten them, so we want to finish it off with a win against Bath on Sunday.
"I missed 10 weeks of this season with an injury at a very important time for the club.
"But now I'm feeling quite fresh, which is the flip side - I'm feeling fresh and raring to go."
