Is there something the French know that we don’t about Ireland’s greatest outside centre. Prior to Saturday’s match, two players remarked on Brian O'Driscoll’s future.
“There are some factors that will make the confrontations more special and likely more difficult for us, like that fact that they lost in Scotland two weeks ago, or that it will be Brian O'Driscoll’s last home game for Ireland,” said scrumhalf, Morgan Parra. Frontrow, Benjamin Kayser said: “This will be Brian O'Driscoll's last home game for his country.”
