Rugby stars in video tribute to O’Driscoll ahead of last game

Oval Talk

Some of the Six Nations' top stars have got together and made a tribute video for Brian O'Driscoll ahead of his last game.

It is easy to get cynical about these orchestrated PR campaigns (which this is, for adidas) but there does seem to be genuine sincerity from the entire rugby community in wishing the Ireland legend the best in his retirement.

Iconic centre O'Driscoll will retire from international rugby after his 141st Test cap against France on Saturday.

O'Driscoll has set a new Test appearance world record, and will extend his record Six Nations caps tally to 65 to boot in Paris.

Despite 15 years at the top of the world game, though, O'Driscoll only has one Six Nations crown, the 2009 Grand Slam, to his name.

However, if Ireland win in the Stade de France they will almost certainly win the title.
