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.
They now face back-to-back games against Toulouse, who O'Shea reckons are the greatest side in 'Heineken Cup history.'
"We'll see where we are as a team on Friday," he told BBC.
"They're the greatest side in Heineken Cup history.
"It's the ultimate test - they can pick two sides packed full of full internationals, world-class superstars.
"If you're not going to enjoy playing rugby in that kind of environment, you shouldn't be around."
"We're not suddenly a great side if we manage to win and we're not a bad side if we lose, but for the club, the supporters and the players, this is where you want to be - Toulouse, on a Friday night at a packed Stoop. Could you ask for better?"
"Yes, we've won a few games but you don't win anything in December, you put yourself in the position to win things in May.
"The guys are very down to earth and know that if we take our eye off the ball we'll come a cropper and suddenly all the good work will come to nothing.
"If anyone in this place thinks they've done anything to date, they're sorely mistaken. But the group, led by Chris Robshaw, will not allow that to happen."
