AS IF HE wasn’t already the most talented rugby player this island has ever produced, Brian O’Driscoll is proving he has the longevity to match.
With less than two weeks to go before his final Six Nations, today is Brian O’Driscoll’s 35th birthday.
He’s probably not allowed much cake at this time of year, so to celebrate, here are just a few reasons why most people in this country think he’s awesome.
“Bring it on!”
Turn the sound down and try to see past the poor quality of this video and take pride that our wee Brian is swinging thumps at Victor Matfield, one of the the most revered second rows ever to grace professional rugby.

We forgave those blonde highlights, proof that he’s some man for one man

We can let him out of the country safe in the knowledge that he won’t let the side down
Yeah, his between-the-legs passes are cool, but this is his real genius
Not to mention his jackling
He knows the difference between fruits and wisdom
At least, I think that’s what he was saying here.

There’s a touch of class about his missus too
All hail Hubes!
Still crazy after all these years
