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.
Philippe Saint-Andre guided his side into the knock-out stages of the Heineken Cup in their debut season in the competition and he is delighted to have signed the powerful back-row forward.
"He's a very fast player and very powerful, given his size and his weight," Saint-Andre said.
"He can also play at centre and he speaks French."
